While these things are wonderfully bizarre they’re not nearly as wacky as some of the truly insane things that have happened here. Read on for a few of them!

Michelle has lived in many places, but counts Maine as one of the best. In addition to the smell of ocean water in the air on rainy days in Portland, she loves puppies, photography, funny people, the Maine Red Claws, traveling, fresh tomatoes, Cambodia and filling out forms.
