The Week in Review Featuring Norman the Newt

Good morning from Maine. This week's Week in Review post is brought to you by Norman the Newt. Norman appeared in the road near my mailbox on Wednesday afternoon. His coloring was so remarkable for an animal in Maine that I couldn't let him risk crossing the road on his own. I escorted him across the road and he's now living free somewhere near the stream that crosses my yard.
