The Grand Children When They Start Out As Dogs, Cats, Pets.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

The pets of your kids, before they have the grandchildren you get to enjoy.

You can get attached to the furry, four legged K-9 and feline offspring. Until the real bundles of joy in pink or blue drift to Earth from the overhead sky drop.

Maine Dogs Bond.

The Pets Socialize As Their Owners Do The Same On A Maine Open Deck.

As a kid we had a lot of dogs and cats. The cats worked the Maine farm barn, out buildings from machine sheds to granaries, the chicken and well house.

The dogs did not herd cattle or animals on the hoof pounding the pastures.

They actually did well to stay alive for long with the farm in Maine location on a busy US Rt 2 highway of commerce. The traffic made keeping the dogs from becoming passerby motorist “hood ornaments” a real challenge.

We had lots of german sheperds, a cocker spaniel for a brief stay because he was not so hot with kids. They youngsters bothered him and he snapped to show his distaste. One St Bernard got hit by a car and did lots of damage to the vehicle and the front leg.

That ended up developing front leg gangrene.

And my dad said it was not fair to a 100 pound and growing dog who had a mother weighing in at 160 pounds. To have Dr Newman the Island Falls vet get out the bone saw and amputate. To end up having only three legs to stand on was not a positive future for a dog this large. To be able to function as a happy dog carrying lots of tonnage around the Maine farm as he roamed.

Maine Dogs, Surrogate Grand Children.

Take The Picture. I Want. Need To Go For A Walk Okay?

So meet Dale, the black labrador retriever, young dog that is home in Maine from Colorado to visit. And his first cousin Nicky a same shade of midnight black color but lower to the ground cocker spaniel. Who can get lost easier in a Maine winter new snow fall when it measures a foot or more.

Nicky, that is not snappy and very affectionate like Dale she enjoys visits with a lot. Bother raised with love and not brought up with anger or neglect.

Had an Aunt Ruth who had one giant stable of horses for riding pleasure both western and English disciplines. So animals in the childhood were plentiful on her farm, the ones of my Uncles, Aunts and our own family one.

Questions From The Answers, Sometimes More Is Needed.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

In depth, long extended play anything is the most rewarding right?

But today in the quickness of drive through and multi tasking, cutting to the chase can miss much.

Like Monarch or Cliff’s Notes for the high school or college student that waited until the night before the exam to read War and Peace.

Or some other epic that just time did not allow to digest and report the findings to earn the sheepskin. The letter grade to move along people. There is nothing more to see here. Step along now. Show’s over.

Maine Is Small Town, Simple Living.

Maine. The Little Things That Are Missing In Urban Living’s Hustle Bustle. Less Is More. Turns Up The Awareness.

Sometimes the longest book is not the most words either right?

Pass the big easy to read print or the filler, fluff like Wonder Bread pumped with mostly hot air. Fools on first glance.

But back to the question answers causing more questions. Because not enough is plopped on the cafeteria tray. As it slides down the highly polished aluminum rails with the sneeze protective glass barrier under your nose.

To make sure you keep your distance and don’t spray whatever germs you have.

Or collect the ones someone else brought to the party.

I worked at a broadcast facility or two in the Bangor Maine area during and after college graduation. And the almighty clever, catchy sound bite. That tickles and gets the attention of the masses. Deep in thought about lots of other things besides the news of the day.

It was like the perfect shot used to fill these blog posts. Like ice in a tall glass of cold, pure, all natural Maine water. Or something squeezed from the whatever was picked from the vine out from the back forty.

maine small town living

Children, Our Greatest Entertainment, Investment In Maine Small Town Living.

Something that was tip of the ice berg illuminating. Quick like a bunny efficient. Like the commands to herd the kids along at bedtime. When it is beyond time for lights out.

But what happens when not enough on this, this and that subject are all there is?

Isn’t it like empty calories? Yes, you are eating, funneling down the gullet lots of bulk, filler but not enough of the stuff you can really sink your teeth into to get down to the nitty gritty.

The juiciest part of the knowledge to take a bite out of like when you are on a walk in the country. And spy with your little blue, brown or whatever eye color a gift from Johnny Appleseed. Rachel Raspberry or Suzie Wild Strawberry. And reach up, down over over. To pluck, bite into the crisp, tart and refreshing that is heirloom rich in the case of the apple of your eye.

Not GMO alterered to look good, taste okay but just a bad photo copy of what you should of had.

Yeah, we’ve hunt and pecked about the merits of Maine organic food before.

Maine Simple Living.

Warm Up, Get Close, Settle Back And Relax. Whew. You Made It. You’re In Maine.

Taking the time to glean and graze on the A to Z of a subject you know little about today. Or one you thoroughly enjoy and do know a little bit about and more than many of the other average bears. Time, how you allocate it and putting it all into balance.

Priorities to establish in the household so kids know another to not forget this, but remember that. So balance can happen.

The kind to keep a person from going wobbly and to know what they need and must have to be grounded, centered, full of joy.

I am glad I live in Maine because of lots of reasons.

Primary and foremost is it is a place with space that allows you to know waste time worried about being in someone else’s proximity. Their center of the Universe Ground Zero. Get down to your own level.

Maine Is Animals, They Enchance Our Lives.

Herding Cats, In Maine Don’t Try To. They Run, Rule The Roost.

To free you up to pursue digging in and becoming more with your own talents and resources. No time wasted in traffic or worried about crime.

More time for focusing on what is real important and not artificial or stacked high with layers of players. To push the paperwork of over burdened local regulations and enforcement.

Maine is simple living and all that is removed to clear the table to get down to the meat and potatoes of it all. To feast on what really tickles the senses.

To get you the full meal deal and extended play, the version of the book like Stephen King’s The Stand that the author went back.

Adding another 500 pages to for a re-read of literary left overs… the best kind when you cherish it more the second time around. And see what was missed the first read, added for the second one.

West Gouldsboro, Winter Harbor, Sorrento Maine Visit

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

When you are lucky enough to live in Maine, the number of places to visit is vast.

Experienced the West Gouldsboro Maine area this past weekend. Oldest daughter of four children exchanged vows on the coast of Maine with a reception at the public library in Sorrento.

maine coastal west gouldsboro mandala farm

Look What I Found… Want To Touch It, See It Up Close?

If you have ever been to Washington DC or NYC, you know about grids and orderly layouts of cities. Maine coastal communities are nothing like that.

More like settlements and “you can’t get there from here” directions.

Because the fingers of land, islands and peninsulas slow down traffic and facilities in the less populated coastal areas of Maine can be challenging.

Maine Coastal Sights, Photos.

Sampling The Sea Food, Sights In The Gouldsboro / Schoodic Point / Prospect Harbor Region Of Maine.

Even with GPS coordinates dialed in.

Because of twisting, dipping and rising quickly Maine coastal roadways where you best be paying attention.

To the country lane narrow roadways kept high school skinny for a reason.

Natural speed controllers that force less pressure on the squeeze of the foot feed pedal to the metal.

Because of rock bound craggy, jagged lay of the land along the Maine sea coast. The reason for all these Maine lighthouses in the first place.

Visibility of oncoming traffic is hard in many of the coastal byways in Maine.

But the beauty of the down to Earth people, the natural unspoiled surroundings of coastal Maine make it all so so worth the time spent there.

The local customs, layout of the terrain, the sheer unique structures and settings you stumble on to when just meandering around Maine’s coastal areas.

Maine is so many things… the eye candy helps show that one image at a time being played in the mental circular slide show presentation.

Maine Lighthouses, Lots To See, All Different In Many Ways.

Over 60 Lighthouses In Maine, Have You Started Your Collection Yet? Prospect Harbor One Venue To Visit With The Camera.

After the stay at the Artemis Bed And Breakfast in Sorrento Maine. When the wedding and reception were history, the true love in the union displayed.

We traveled to the Mandala Organic Farm Store in Gouldsboro Maine. With a nice visit of family and the farm operation, hoop house, a tour of the operations.

Then after lunch at the Pickled Wrinkle, it was time to point the jeep to Schoodic Point before neck reining back due north to Aroostook County.

Seeing lots of bikers with and missing the motors. The easiest way to maneuver and to squeeze in a space for parking. When it is time to put the kick stand down and hoof it around new coastal Maine scenery. Snapping images to remember the experience. Capturing, shooting stills and video loops to trap in time the experience.

Maine Lighthouses In Schoodic Point / Prospect And Winter Harbor Area.

Maine Lighthouses, Been To Many? Not Al Need A Lobster Boat Or Sea Kayak To Experience Up Close And Personal!

Was able to capture easily two more lighthouses in Maine for the growing collection. One lighthouse at Winter harbor Maine. The other a lighthouse in Prospect Harbor on Schoodic Point, Maine.

The smell of salt air, soft touch of a sea breeze and sound of the surf on the Maine coast is therapeutic. Calming, soothing, so relaxing with the shift in mood happening quickly.

Glints of diamond sunshine reflection everywhere you look is part of the magic. In oh oh, here it comes again.

Getting high inside.

Deep down near the soul. As you become mesmerized, placed under the hypnotic spell. Of Maine’s wicked good way of increasing awareness and forcing you to relax completely.

If you make time, are close enough to the Maine coastline to spend some time climbing along the rocks.

Listening to sea gulls and navigational buoys.

As the dot of Maine lobster trap markers bob in the water of the Atlantic Ocean. Ever thought of the move, relocation to Maine?

Maine, big state, lots of see. Don’t stay away so long.

Music, Sometimes Words Get In The Way.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

When you live in Maine, the “music” in the background is a babbling brook, lake or surging ocean lapping at the shore. 

Or a roaring river picking up steam and widening from melting winter snows.

The snake like wet ribbon swelling the banks. Deepening and raising the water level. To create extra all natural, pure magic waterworks to enhance the outdoor experience.

To make the same place feel different because a season changed since the last visit.

Four times is a charm to shake up the variation as the pages of the calendar get ripped off. Drift to the floor.

The music we listen to can be bluegrass, American folk, or center stage old rockers visiting Maine on a regular basis. But sometimes words get in the way.

Techno can cure that with more tribal beat, less verbage if any salt and peppered in the stanzas of the musical score.

Some of the current tunes spun to be in the background.

Lake Living In Maine, The Pace Is Easy Does It, Kick Back Relax.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

The rules of lake living in Maine are short and sweet.

Keep it simple. Lots of outdoor cooking. Family, friends, all the food home made and scrumptious. The living room is outdoors. The open deck up back waiting. Circle of rocks down front where nightly fires happen are both popular places.

Something To Eat And Being Social. Not All Snapping Turtles Live Up To Their Label.

So is getting in, out, over the water. To cool off. Fish for supper. To water ski or tube.

Kayaking slowly with the overhand paddle dip side to side. Itching to crack the throttle of something motorized.

Everyone does Maine lake living with their own custom built variation.

To reflect on how your life is going so far. Sunrises, sunsets and the in between on a Maine lake.

How would you fill that space of time?

Perspective happens in the sharper focus of being able to spend some time lake living in Maine.

The length of the stay is not the end all either. A weekend, an entire season or whatever fraction of time you can carve out to run away to be on a Maine lake. It’s all good.

Was at a camp on Flying Pond in Mt Vernon/Vienna Maine this past weekend. For a family reunion with perfect weather dialed in. Lots of new folks to meet of all ages, walks of life. Ate too much, laughed a lot, collected some photo glimpses to share of what I already knew.

Maine lake living is therapeutic.

Cures what ails you. Or refreshes the soul as you kick back, unplug, recharge.

Because water, the view, the lake loons, wildlife and outdoor cooking add to the take away.

The setting wearing shorts, flip flops and wild colored tourist shirts, crazy hats with fishing lures in them set the tone. Of anything goes.

Add and embellish a tad to the colorful expressions and recollections to keep them sharp, vivid.

Everyone takes a turn, has a role in the audience at a Maine lake camp or home.

And adds their two cents in making, preserving the traditions. Pass them on. It takes all ages, like a church to all together create the sense of family, community.

Maine Lake Living, Outdoors, Simple, Refreshing.

Stretch Your Neck Out, Consider Getting Your Own Maine Waterfront Property.

Everyone roots for all the family members in the tribe.

With traces of the same DNA coursing through their veins.

Through the ups and down. The twists sideways that you don’t experience alone. Because with family everyone is in the ride in the connection.

Weddings, funerals, divorces, new births. Job promotions, relocations, retirements. New hairdos, medical illnesses. All that discussed at the Maine lake get together comparing notes. Catching up.

Maine is not a state known for a giant population.

Maine Lighthouse In Winter

See The Light, Maine Is The Source.

More wildlife than people in the wide open, unspoiled spaces and places we traipse.

Chasing, then stretching the dollar is one reason the numbers are low.

Not everyone will and some argue it is more survival than living in Maine.

But hunger improves the taste.

Increases the appreciation for what you do have that was worked hard to obtain. And demands respect, care in preserving it.

Because marching out to replace it is not done easily when the bank account is only so fat.

Not so roly poly.

And major chunks of it are already earmarked for this, this and oh yeah, that too. There is a cost to just existing, breathing and keeping the food and water flowing no matter where you are.

But if a depression, stock market crash happened, I sure would rather be in Maine than a concrete jungle.

We would make a game out of the rise to the occasion. To live simpler, more like pioneers and camping out appreciating just the basics.

Relaxing, Living In Maine

Maine. Sit A Spell. See What Happens One By One To Your Senses.

Some will argue Maine IS a great place to live.

Or have an income that follows you here into Maine retirement.Or are sampling it, hitting the highlights on vacations whenever possible.

Why do I live here in Maine?

No better place to raise a family is one reason. Here are a slew of others at this link.

Your standard of living to be happy, your spending habits and impulse control all weigh in too.

What do you need to make to just barely connect the ends of the rope. Or to sleep better nights because you are not mortgaged to the hilt.

Stinking thinking it is dubbed.

Despite being waited on hand and foot with hired help to try to improve their life.

All the latest and greatest stuff and round the clock pampered adoration attention is medication for the symptom.

Not the cure.

Because it is not real, not all about others. Do the 180 degrees in thinking, your life outlook. Replace thinking you deserve pampered to instead be challenged. Not get comfortable and to grow, expand, become way way more.

What’s Cooking Inside, Outside When You Live In Maine? Plenty!

I think in the final analysis we get more for less in Maine.

And have more enriched lives because greater awareness happens. Less clutter, 4th lowest crime, cheap real estate where you don’t need a mortgage.

Low cost insurance for vehicles that don’t get stolen. More about meat and potatoes essentials in Maine. And that is more than good enough. Digging deep to be more happens inside a Maine person.

Live here long enough and you get it in what is important. Relationships, the connection is stronger in small rural Maine living for sure.

We need each other and depend on the back and forth to do more than survive.

In small Maine towns, folks look out for each other. Not ignore or snub or play the smug and aloof character.

Each and everyone one of us in a small Maine town has a vital role.

No one is too busy or caught up chasing their tail to miss the essentials in healthy living in Maine.

We count our blessings morning, noon and night. And we enjoy the four seasons of Maine year round. Not just a long weekend a year to sample Maine’s all natural, pure beauty and simplicity.

In Maine the simple living approach of our daily thinking means one particular question gets asked inside your head. A lot. The one about “do I need it or just want it?” We develop the two flavor choices if we don’t get raised with it ingrained deeply as a youngsters along the way to adulthood.

Going To Flying Pond, New Area Of Maine To Explore.

Traveling is fun and enlightening outside Maine but instate it can take a lifetime to discover the local turf.

Next weekend have a family reunion to attend in Flying Pond and know zip about that area of Maine.

For starters, I am very familiar with local recreational waterfront options like Drews Lake that got plied, surveyed with a kayak yesterday. But Hhmmmm.

Year Round, Maine Lakes, Ponds Get Enjoyed. Used Like The Outdoor Living Room.

Where, how to get there and what is Flying Pond all about?

For starters, check with the state about the fish, the waterfront body itself.

Details on Flying Pond.

Vienna and Mount Vernon Maine in Kennebec County covers the where is Flying Pond. It is 403 acres large. 8.7 miles long, 27′ feet average depth and 80′ deep maximum.

You have to consider like lots of the lake study done way back in the 1940’s that not all the numbers can be taken as gospel though.

Maine has a lot of lakes. Somewhere I read about 2200 in number for how many Maine lakes.

And don’t even think about how many islands to visit. (Hint: 3166 islands in Maine.) Without splitting hairs on are we talking coastal or inland islands in Maine?

And what is the plain jane, garden variety difference… if something is labeled a Maine lake not a pond?

Or the other way around. Usually Maine lakes have different layers of temperatures and ponds have one consistent one. But the inlet, outlet of a lake or a pond is what makes the major difference.

Lighthouses in Maine have taken the reins in some of the exploration of Vacationland in the past.

Like a past post on Burnt Island lighthouse. Or the Cuckholds Lighthouse off Southport Maine. Just a few hunted down, photographed and that got ink in the blog post stream of insertions.

And as that personal collection of state landmarks grows, I remember some inland lighthouses in Maine. A little fuzzy but remembering someday to capture another one or two that were not your traditional along the coast of Maine lighthouses.

Let There Be Light… Solar Heat, Power For Maine Homes.

How did they live years ago without power? Quite nicely.

No hair dryer for Suzie’s wet hair. Or straightener, crimper to plug in to alter what sits on her head.

Clothes hung out instead of tumble dried. Fresh air not a sheet of fabric softener applied in a little longer process on days that are still. Or no time at all when a stiff breeze removes the moisture while flapping whatever is secured to the line with wooden clothespins.

Living off grid is independent.

And like the organic farmers, back to the land homesteaders, the approach to living is kept rock steady clean, simple, enriching.

Reducing it down to remove the clutter. And the waste, added expense created to fuel the unnecessary. That only serves to distract, detract from that simple living.

That approach to Maine’s day to day existence here requires a constant vigil. To be centered and have purpose.

Round the clock effort reminders needed to never loose track of that less is more in Maine.

Gardens, Flowers In Maine

Maine, All Four Seasons We Spend Most Of Our Time Outside. It’s All Natural, Simpler Living.

And to always be on the look out for ways to steady as she goes. Not get caught up in anything that takes the eyes off that approach to living simple in Maine.

To keep it all natural, unfiltered and refreshingly lasting to endure. Not ever store bought and artificial, short lived.

Creature comforts, are those enough for you to be content? You have a full belly, shelter that is warm and clean. Family that surrounds you and health of any of them is not a concern. Is that all you require or is something nagging, missing from that simple approach?

Maybe highly effective marketing is causing the doubt, the nervous in the service feeling that something is missing.

You need this, should have that, deserve to let the World know you are one of a kind special. The only one in your breed or species and hail to Dorothy to be revered. Held in high regard.

Not everyone can handle simple living. Partly because life has been nothing based on that up to this point. Or that to embrace that angle on living would be weak, depriving you are all of life’s goodies. the bounty of wealth that is out there for the taking.

Is that the take away at the beginning and end of the day where you hang your hat on planet Earth now?

The Kids In The Restaurant, On The Plane, Store Get Antsy.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

Ever been somewhere and the kids in the landscape of a restaurant, on vacation flying or shopping, at the playground get “animated”.

Kids act like kids. Because well, they are for a short time. But all that changes with three meals a day, lots of rest, exercise. They grow up. Have their own air dropped by a passing stork.

Adults can act like kids in good and bad ways.

Ever seen one that behaved, sounded like a two year old? Who is at fault if blame is needed when a kid is out of line in a public setting? Or when the adult who reacts to them is not so kid friendly. Never had a few of their own. Drop dead, all she wrote missing even a drop of patience.

Awareness of how a child’s behavior is affecting your meal, other patrons and the staff. And how long, what take for steps, what is appropriate?

If a kid explodes, does not get what they want and you are shopping.

My secretary said she told the grocery store manager hold the cart. I’ll be back. Left the store. No hanging around hoping for improvement. Have a little parenting outside Piggly Wiggly the establishment to do.

Once the kid’s attitude is stretched back into shape, the younger,  close to five year old child wanted to go back. Promised not to do it again. Not that day though.

But days later when revisiting the place with the wire carts and one squeaky wheel, junior was there. But better behaved and knowing the rules.  Quiet and reserved and all eyes and ears. The lesson was a success. Did not need a repeat procedure because no more melt down. No one headed to the correctional center.

In school, the discipline is metered out differently if at all.

Threats of lawsuits, the kid becoming the parent and changing places in the authority chain of command. Going to the head of the class in a not so healthy way.

Sweet Sounds, Locally Sourced From Maine Youth. Keep Them Here In Maine.

I was screwing on a SOLD panel on a Maine real estate sign near one local high school. And noticed a long line of cars at the end of the day in line like taxis. It was early fall. Leaves dropping to the ground and the second bloom explosion of color underway.

And one child verbally using their recess voice chastising the mother startled me. Mom who apologized profusely for being a few minutes late. The boy who could use a little physical exercise with a healthy girth continued to whale on the mother until they drove off. To home that was only three blocks away. A walk would have done the lad wonders all the way around.

In a heated exchange the Mom told junior she had skipped her lunch half hour, could not get away due to an emergency at work at a job she really needed.

It all went on deaf ears. None of it deterred Jimmy’s demeanor and distaste for her tardiness behind the mini van wheel. Where were you whined in the questioning looking over the hood of the ride.

The verbal lashing at the public whipping post continued and was hard to observe.

Other kids looked surprised that you could do that to a parent and not suffer immediate consequences. I could not help but think does Dad treat Mom the same way? Because on most of the Nanny 911 episodes, that is the common theme of why the household is going sideways.

Hold! Grab The Short Rope, One Paddle Hand Extended! Hang On!

My Mom’s “you wait until your father gets home” did the trick.

Plus I knew oh oh. I have disappointed my parents. That is what hurt, smarted the most. Knowing a nuclear weapon must have been deployed as a youngster because just a reminder look, was all it took. There was a limit, no room for more debate telegraphed in that sharp as tack glare.

Somewhere back there near the beginning of walking, a kite on the keester was administered.

Then did not have to be again. Given not out of enjoyment or sick pleasure but just to remind it was enough. End of debate.Tough love.

I knew I was not head of the household and felt secure in that with limits, rules, family traditions and acceptable behavior clearly understood. By me and the three older brothers who towed the same line.

No hollering, high emotion, no broken furniture or household items made during the debate.

There was not and respect never left the room as silence entered it during the “corrections phase”.  It was all chalked up under the heading parenting, tough love.  Raising kids in Maine, we had work to do and did not waste time on tug of wars in who runs the show. Or who is for the record unhappy, or that is not fair. We had more important tasks to attend.

The parent saying your full name. Giving you to the count of three. Or reminding I’ll give you something to cry about. Meaning you are over doing the drama and carrying on and it is not working. Time for bed. For the whole household according to the clock on the wall.

Ever been on a plane flying to somewhere that did not require first hand knowledge, experience with a snow shovel? And have the occasional frequent flyer mutter “I wish they would shut that kid up”. When an infant, new born adjusting to the change in air pressure in the plane cabin is not doing so well.

It is easy to want that guy or gal in 32C to shut the pie hole.

The sound of the child is not irritating and you have a shift to feeling badly for the young flyer, his parents. And wondering what can I do to help. Because we have all been there, done that and take it in stride without throwing a stone.

Would like to hear from the other 75 diners in the Marcy’s Diner incident. Then draw a conclusion as to what just happened and went viral. Before the media, the lawyering up got to it and added the spin or whatever was lost in translation. At the place where half hour waits happen now because of the hubbub during a slow news day.
