Yes, just fan memorabilia. I support my local police :) It is my first SK button. I am going to Ogunquit, Maine in two months which is where part of The Stand takes place so I thought I would get this one first.
Now you need a smiley face pin! Will this be your first time visiting Maine? Have you read The Stand or are you reading it to coincide with your visit? I've never been, but I'm applying for some travel funds (that will hopefully come through) to do some research out there later this year.

I read it last year. I have wanted to go ever since. This will be my first time. Where are you from?

Very cool! Getting to see the landscape from a novel is a surreal experience. I've visited a few places from novels, and the experience is incredible! It definitely changed my perspective on the novel. Settings I pictured one way were so different in person. I'm down south (for now), and have never seen New England, so I know visiting would be an excellent experience. I hope you have a great time!
