Why my next phone may not be an iPhone

I forgot to plug my cellphone in last night. I went to the dealer to get the car serviced and charged my iPhone in the car on the way there. When I got there it was at 27%. The service rep at the desk told me it would be about 2 hours before I got my car back and I had forgotten to grab my charger before I left.

Then I saw this.

Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary

I visited the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary this past weekend for the first time. This state park has excellent trails. It is very well maintained and the staff was very friendly. Admission is very inexpensive and worth every penny.
