FORT KENT - I'm not what you would call a "girly-girl". I don't do shopping trips with girlfriends, I often forget to brush my hair, I don't know any cool make-up tricks, and I like to go to the bathroom alone. So when my friend Sheri asked me to go to the Fort Kent Outdoor Center's Winter Women's Day event on Feb. 21, I really wanted to say "no thanks." Against every fiber of my being I decided to give it a whirl, figuring I'd get some quality time in with my pal (without kids) and maybe snap some pictures for the Fiddlehead Focus.
