A Day at LL Bean with a Restless Transplant

First thing Friday morning, I linked up with fat cat photographer Foster Huntington of A Restless Transplant and The Fat of the Land. We toured the facilities of LL Bean in Freeport and Brunswick, Maine. In the coming week, we will feature photos from their headquarters, their factory where Bean Boots and Boat and Totes are made, and their historical archives. And I will provide a word or two about the current state of things at a company. Special thanks to Mary Rose MacKinnon and Mac McKeever at Bean for their incomparable hospitality and inexhaustible enthusiasm throughout a truly wonderful day.

    Can’t wait for both of your posts. Between those and the beginning of what will hopefully be another run to the National Championship by my Tigers (ideally with a better result this time), it’s shaping up to be a pretty good week.

    • Oh, Memphis… I feel a spirited rivalry taking root. Born in Kansas, raised in Missouri, I am a Big Twelve supporter through and through. You’re in trouble. Let the heckling begin!

  3. Hope you were able to stuff your pockets with some goodies when the guys with the white gloves weren’t looking. I’m sure the pics will be great. Cheers

  4. Nick, let’s just say if eBay member plaidman99 offers some Bean boots featuring HD photos and white gloves, click “Alert.” There’s been some tampering! Tampering!

    Missouri might be the only team other than UConn that troubles us slightly in the West. As for Kansas, I’d love to get another chance at them in the tourney. In class today, Tyreke Evans said we were going all the way. I sure hope he’s right!

  6. TE was in class? That’s awesome! Dish more dirt, Memphis!
