All Ax, No Lumber

There's a saying in Texas for wannabe cowboys, Texan poseurs if you will: All hat, no cattle.

Well, if you don't want to be accused of being all trap, no lobster. Or, whatever other mangled Maine metaphor is equivalent to the Texan catchphrase, I recommend you scoot over to the Maine Historical Society's collection of vintage (it's so hot!) Maine photos. It can be your way of saying, "I may not work on the water or in the woods like these folks did, but at least I appreciate their hard work."

Actually, I guess that attitude does make you all ax, no lumber. Whatever. Click here for the Historical Society's collection anyway.
