You Have A Long Weekend In Maine, What To Do For Fun?

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

Maine is Vacationland, the folks at the department of motor vehicles, licensing remind each and everyone one of us with that one word declaration.

Along the bottom of the Maine license plates. So when you are lucky enough to be here in Maine for a weekend, one of the longer, extended ones, what to do?

Maine, One Blue And Green Dream. Wake Up, Get To Vacationland.

Well for starters, you don’t need a lot of money if you think off road. In the woods, on a Maine lake, river and it’s camping.

Tenting under the stars. Wearing a back pack during the day. Nightly cooking on an open fire. Simple outdoors fun in Maine is low cost. If you stay clear, veer far away from the expensive tourist traps along the coastline.

You are not here for a long time, but a good time. Don’t want to spend it in line. Elbow gnashing or shoulder to shoulder with others all just hankering a little Maine too right? Maine is not in your face, a lot about being by yourself. Getting away to spend some time with me, myself and I. Figure things out, mentally sort and organize your thoughts. The direction your life is headed that is good. The areas where dialing in, a tad of adjustment is needed.

Hiking is what Maine was made to do. Exploring, walking, talking, gawking. And the food outdoors, the work up an appetite, hunger makes the dining taste improve a hundred fold.

Biking in Maine, sometimes it involves ferry rides to an island.

Rock Solid Maine Is Special.

Simple, Stunning, Real, All Natural. Maine.

The best part of being in Maine is the outdoor space, natural setting.

But start venturing closer to the tight knit communities. To meet, greet, sit with the locals at a church bean supper.

To chew the fat at a state fair, talking about an interest the other side of the conversation is already put in motion.

Comparing notes, what he would have done different. What by accident turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Vacations in Maine are highly educations, two way communicating easy to strike up.

Mainers share, care and are a talkative bunch.

Unless you start the dialogue drop in statement, remind of “back in Jersey”. That cools the mood, causes a little more space to happen. In the inching away, still smiling but just not as warm and fuzzy.

Maine Cows Dot The Pasture Country Side.

Moo Yourself. Don’t Happen To Have An Apple, Carrot, A Little Grain?

Bring your walking shoes, hiking boots, camping gear. Travel light, explore far and wide. But you won’t need a lot of money once you find yourself inside the boundary dotted lines of Maine.

Happy Labor Day faithful readers, followers of the Me in Maine blog posts. Gulf Hagas is on the radar for this hunt and peck, beginner wordsmith.

One only one of the many neat, memorable, healthy options when time is short. For the what to do for fun when on vacation in Maine.

Maine Clothing, No Not Color Blind Or An Anarchist.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

What you wear, clothe your body in Maine is a lot like the Frank Lloyd Wright reminder that “form follows function”.

Which actually Louis Sullivan was the brain child of that particular notion. That Frank took from his mentor. And ran with it. Getting all the press.

Maine, What Do The Natives Wear?

What To Wear When Driving A 90 Tine Blueberry Rake In Maine.

The Maine wardrobe.

If you are working in a Northern Maine potato field, the spud house to process the golden nuggets. For the from the harvest farm land, out the door to fresh markets.

Or to store them away for continual winter withdrawals. For dark bin by bin siphoning, then clothing is anything goes.

That is as long as Maine clothing is not stringy, straps, loose. That can get caught in machinery. Sucking the guy or gal wearing the threads into the conveyor belt.

The Oz like wizardry of many noisy, whirling, twirling high RPM spinning cogs. That someone in a hurry sometimes forgets to replace the OSHA approved safety guards. To create an accident waiting to happen situation.

If outside, working on a Maine winter snow storm (AKA “dusting”) removal in a Maine winter. If that is the mission, something warm, layered but that breaths, wicks works best.

So the material trumps the color. Because it does the job. And cold or clammy sweating, getting chills is avoided. Not what Mainer’s put up with, struggleto add to their toil. When chasing the dollar working outside in the Maine weather elements.

Maine Blueberry Rakers, Pickers.

Following Strings, Lanes In Maine Blueberry Fields, Raking Up A Storm.

When the mercury sits low in the tube. Wind howls, drifts. Clearing a slow, low pitch Maine home porch or camp roof. That is more like the turtle than the hare in shedding snowflakes.

Or hunkered down, with water repellant fishing gear at the helm of a diesel boat in a north east gale ocean wind.

Hauling in, hoisting up dark green clawed Maine lobsters.

Maine Is Wearing Good Warm Clothes. Or Nothing At All.

Maine Blueberries, From Downeast Maine. Pick, Rake, Harvest. Clothing Optional.

During the winter months, from the ocean’s floor with locations all marked by colorful floating surface buoys. That salt water keeps from freezing in. Static frozen in still frame.

So color is less a concern in Maine for clothing. No one out to impress. No one seeking to cause any tag left on for shock value price envy.

We don’t name drop in Maine.

That game does not work here in the Pine Tree state. Because Mainers don’t play, care about name brands. We like paid for, frequent good as new, second time around Goodwill type stores. Where wool blend clothing that sets you back a couple bucks a copy works just fine.

It’s all about cool, warm, comfortable and no or low cost when talking, describing Maine clothing. Hand me downs.

The blazer with no bullet or moth holes.

That has the leather elbow patches and exotic far away name, expert tailor stitching. That the original now deceased, passed away Maine owner just left hanging in the closet unworn. Or with very few miles logged. Because his wife like it, he… well, not so much.

Maybe it was the buttoned collar and tie cutting off air to the windpipe, not the blazer. Or the fact that dressing up was just not his forte. Made him feel like a brook trout out of water. Or the center of attention, was seeking mirror mirror on the wall notice. Putting on heirs. Just not the way he, most true Mainers are wired.

Maine Is Second Hand Clothing, Low Or No Cost Options.

Dressed For Fun, The Outdoor Application. Not Being A Clotheshorse. Or Out To Impress. Just Warm, Cool, Comfortable.

As temperatures increase and you find yourself wielding a 45 tine blueberry rake on the barrens in Downeast Maine, less clothing is more like it.

Cool is where it is at. Especially for the NASCAR nimble, skilled, quick imported laborers from Honduras. Who drive 80 to 90 tine Maine blueberry rakes.

The new to the game, less polished players wield the lower number models with small scoops. Taking longer time spent filling boxes. Like small size potato baskets fill cedar or plywood field barrels. Added production time, lower ticket results at sundown of a frosty beginning, hot as Hades tail end of the day field laboring to help an area farmer.

Clothing that works in Maine. Why do you think LL Bean is a Maine company and so successful? The guarantee money back or else helps. The fact it works first, looks rugged and appealing making a fashion statement second. Flashy is not the end all with clothing in Maine.

Save that for the polo match, Kentucky Derby, Hollywood film premier.

Maine Snow Skiing, Swish Swish.

Looking Like Bank Robbers, But Layered For Maine Down Hill Skiing.

Neither is the color the cat’s meow for clothing. Unless you are a flagger in summer on a busy Maine highway.

Where visibility at the new 75 miles per hour on I-95 roadwork means dress brightly. Stay eyes peeled, nimble running that steam roller, paving machinery.

Where Maine traffic fines are double in the construction zones. For those who ignore the pedal to the metal reflex.

To zing behind the wheel of paid for hung onto, life long friend like vehicles. With names like boats in a Maine harbor.

Maybe not with all the fenders the same matched color the factory sprayed on, clear coated. To get across Maine, north to south, east to west quickly. And hopefully not make a flagger, other construction worker a casualty, hood ornament.

Volunteers, Not Regulars, You See Them Around Maine.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

Maine is outdoors, four seasons, all natural.

And as you travel the side roads, or hike up trails, you see “volunteers”.

Climbing Mt Katahdin, Blue Berries Happen.

Maine Blueberries… Show Up Single File Here And There As Volunteers.

baxterpark10 Not the two legged kind. That pitch in and many almost have personal ministries run behind the scenes. I know of three ladies that all they do year round is knit.

Really neat hand made mittens, warm hats for winter use. And they deliver the year long fruit of their labors. To local schools and ask the teachers to make sure they get to where they belong.

On the hands, heads of kids that come to school with neither. Neat habit to pearl one and knit two when making wool hand and head coverings of all colors. To match the multitude of personalities of the new owners these born to knit ladies never get to meet.

No, the volunteers today Me In Maine blog post fans are the ones that spring up, grow in the oddest places.

Or are like kids that lose both parents, have no brothers, sisters, grand parents or aunts, uncles. On their own. To raise themselves.

Beyond the tree line of easier growing conditions. The kind you see climbing Mt Katahdin. In a nook and cranny of rock, not so hospitable growing conditions. Blueberries happen. Scrub pines, firs too. But all very hardy, resilient, determined. Weathering the harsh growing, weather surroundings and standing out because they are armies of one. Lone wolf plants, trees for hikers to enjoy. But that live here through wind chills of winter, rains of the spring, all that can come at you for weather in Maine.

Maine Corn, Potatoes... It Happens.

See What Is Out Of Place, Does Not Really Belong ?

In Maine potato lingo, “volunteers” are spuds that grow up next year in a neglected field. That were not planted new, visited by the equipment that always annually shows up in spring with new seed.

But that just show up. Seemingly on their own, raised by themselves. In a rag tag collection of other regenerated seed, left overs from something hanging around from last fall’s harvest. That froze, sunburned, was not field gleaned. Eaten by man or beast. That made it to plant itself after a blanket of frost, white fluffy ground covering.

There is a life lesson sermon in that pick yourself up by the bootstraps for another blog post.

Today coming in from the lake getaway, preparing to fuel up on black fresh hot coffee at Cameron’s Market (that Bangor Metro says has the best pizza in all of Northern Maine), something caught the corner of the eye. I thought of the kid’s educational game “One Of These Things”. That is not like the others. See the sea of green? Spot it Bert, Ernie, Prairie Dawn in the audience?

Maine Farm Field, Potatoes, Corn Too!

Raised In A Maine Potato Field, Orphaned But Adopted By Hills, Rows Of Spuds.

The corn stalk that BOINNNG.

Sprung up taller and towering over the Maine potato plants that are inching closer and nearer to a fall spud harvest.

Did Lilley Farms in Smyrna Maine who run a spread of black and white milkers plant the fodder corn seedling? As a fellow grower playful joke, diversion?

Or looking closely, hey wait a minute. Looks organic, like Nature’s Circle…Dick, Sue, Meg, Lowell and the neighborhood farm gang have a hand in this. Or was the single corn seed air lifted by a pair of feather wings?

Drilled in the fertile, tilled soil by a bird? Who air dropped the kernel on the way by overhead? When bomb bay rear doors opened, surrounded by some natural fertilizer to give it a start occurred?

Brought in from a neighboring field where the black bird stopped for a snack. That went from stem to stern. Through his system naturally. In a place where all you could see in any direction was corn planted. No potatoes trespassed. Just long ears, darkening white to brown silk. Spilling, sprewing out the tops corners of each green covering of yellow rows protected inside.

The single corn stalk.

That a raccoon or black bear already sampled it’s production. In a late night snack. The corn that somehow drifted into this New Limerick potato field of Buzzy and Andrea Nightingale. All fertilized by what the potato plants dine on for a 3 number cocktail side dressing. Or bringing covered dish, it’s own wrapped container of nutrients. To assure success out of the gate last spring?

Or was subject matter, topic selection for this blog post pretty meager today? It happens. You decide and thank you for following our Maine blog post collection faithful reader.

August 22nd through the 24th, the American Folk Festival in Bangor Maine will fill the airwaves with music.

Maine | Hunger Improves The Taste.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

Precious, uncommon, experiences that you are involved in, participate.

Not pay for and attend, watch. Maine provides the understated natural beauty with wide open spaces, plenty of fresh air, clean water. And less people. More wildlife. They say hunger improves the taste. And life is all about the take away, the quality right?

Where you are, the location times three is important beyond just selecting the best real estate property listing for you.

When your surroundings are kept beautiful, uncrowded then the need to seek thrills, distractions, self medicate to compensate for lacking elbow room disappears.

Maine Is Less People, More Living.

Recharge, Unplugged In Uncrowded Maine.

When you work to create the event, life ritual and not just stay on the fringe as a voyeur, the depth of the experience accelerates. Expands like buck shot. An umbrella opening up.

Hitting deeper, more completely, cleanly. Because it is real, raw, unfiltered. Not spun, not mass produced. But personal, hand built, home made.

Kept simple. So one note can carry the tune. Stand out and not get lost in the noise. To be seen, witnessed, enjoyed and appreciated. Maine, understated.

Humble, sometimes not able to use words to do her justice in the answer. To what’s it like in Maine. Whoa, how long do I have to even try to begin to cover that answer?

Maine people are not simple, their lifestyle is by choice.

Less layers of man made, expensive store bought means you have room inside to expand. To allow learning, discovery, ongoing self exploration to take place. For growth, maturity and richness in your life.

Pride is the wrecking ball of relationships. Because you take all the credit, figure you earned it, are the cat’s meow.

Like food planted, cultivated, picked locally. Prepared with loved ones all having a part in the feast. Spread over the family table, all causes the taste to improve.

Rock Solid Maine Is Special.

Simple, Stunning, Real, All Natural. Maine.

Because nothing artificial happens. No clutter or agendas to impress. No vending machines, lip service of pleasantries. Just sustenance with in season food, and maybe trips to the root cellar, food pantry other times of the year in Maine. To nourish and satisfy completely. From the bounty of your own sweat, dedication, love for the lay of the land.

The option of having a meal to dine on, removes the notice of the hunger mental memo down below. Flashing in neon that comes alive after working outdoors in Maine.

Doing more to be self sufficient. To take up the slack in the shift from working three mental sapping city jobs to make money to hire services performed. To it’s up to you Bub. And don’t be afraid to reach out, ask for a little helping hand.

Maine Is Outdoors, Using Only Natural Ingredients.

Maine Living, All Natural. Rock Solid Simple.

From others in the same boat.

You learn to need, lean and trust someone besides yourself. In your daily living where the hunger, hard work outdoors improves the taste. Maine, hungry yet? Set your plate on a country table and watch grateful inside build, grow, blossom.

Maine, it’s not like this many other places.

Maine, an English word for satisfying, contentment, joy, peace. All rolled up into one.

Come fill your lungs with fresh air. Sample the eye candy. Taste, play, relax on and in the clean water. Feel the four seasons turning like pages in a very good book. That you can never put down, stop reading. That book that starts with an innocent visit to see what is up here. Then never ends when you land in Maine. Spending a life time in Vacationland.

Room Around You, Maine Provides That Space For Healthier Living.

This item was filled under [ Uncategorized ]

Space in Maine is measured in acreage not feet, inches.

And unlike many crowded areas where it is zero property lot lines, and it’s why bother putting in side windows. Due to the up close and way way too personal house in your face in all directions.

Maine Is Lower Population, More Space.

Maine, Homes Hide Well, Harder To Spot, Find Easily.

And good luck if you have company when you live outside Maine, in a sprawling cityscape.

Only room in the driveway for one car and then oh oh. Park on the street has to happen. Hope it does not snow overnight. Or your heavily insured rig gets stolen.

Or left on cinder blocks, the tires and much of the vehicle stripped NASCAR quickly to the bone. For precious parts to slip into the chop shop merchandising jet stream. “Five Finger Discount Auto Center, How Can We Help You Today?”

Maine’s terrain, the turf and distance away from population centers removes all that.

We drive older cars, SUV’s with multi color fenders, working pick ups with dings, dents. Maybe some humorous bumper stickers making a statement.

Maine is small towns, simple living. Outdoor space.

On A Mission, Mainers Are Busy Bees But Enjoy More Space, Less People In The Natural Beauty.

Affectionately know around the families, our circle of friends with ladies names.

Like painted on lobster, fishing, sailing boats in a Maine harbor. The keys left in the ignition. Unlocked like the homes, out buildings next to them.

Maine Is Outdoors, All Four Seasons.

Maine, Outside, Another Season. Just Dressed Different. Inner Communication Going On With A Higher Power.

Because less people means more space for the folks lucky enough to vacation here.

Or better yet to put down deep roots. To live here in Maine with families. Working in the neat vibrant communities. Pitching in to add your two cents direction. Sweat off the brow to all the home grown local festivities, the associated service, school, church groups activities.

Respect for other people’s property goes hand in hand with the more relaxed, laid back approach to simple Maine living. But the space is what makes everyone chill. Avoid uptight, antsy. Say whew, you made it to Maine. When you know the feeling as you cross the big green bridge. And the blue, reflectorized sign says you made it cowboy.

Don’t get your knickers in a knot.

Life is harder, money is more precious. Better impulse control with the spending happens. More bartering too in the daily exchanges. But the connection, we all need the others on the small Maine town home team. And all know it. Helps overlook the annoying habits we all have and labor to polish. To improve, be a work in progress. To shine, contribute, pitch in and take our turn. Do more than our share.

More rewarding, deeper appreciation happens over time. Because we are more equipped, self sufficient in so many ways. By necessity and then by choice in the lifestyle. Space helps boost the signal on hear yourself think. The long as your arm list of what we don’t have (traffic, crime, high cost of living) adds much to experience. Of all this Maine drop dead gorgeous, unfiltered natural beauty.

Ever notice the most interesting people you meet have not all had easy, charmed lives?

They take adversity, set backs, cruel blows dealt them one by one.

Maine Is Outdoors, All Natural Simple Living.

Maine, Rock Solid, Simple, Lasting.

Convert the negative into something positive. Blessed with a good supply of deep down inner grit and determination. Are not quitters. No matter how rocky, steep that it gets. And often do above and beyond because of the other loved ones counting on them in life. Mainers are grateful with what they have that is more than enough.

But after a lifetime of struggles, ups and downs, twists and curves, the natural gravitation as you get older is to seek places where the setting allows more peace.

Less turmoil. And like I hear all too often in my day job, folks seeking to live in Maine part or full time, come to the same conclusion. Much of their hardships are from other people sticking their beak where it does not belong. Or just sheer numbers of too many crowds of folks swarming, smothering them. Pushing in and robbing precious limited time on Earth that all of us are provided. No space for too long is just like no air, water, food, love. Takes it toll.

Tired? Then consider so simple, real Maine, all natural.

The setting, location times three is everything right? In understated beauty, the unspoiled surroundings. The unspoken respect for where we are lucky to live in Maine, the natives get it. We chose to remove layers of what distracts. No needed. Fashion our day to day with tasks of what is most lasting, rewarding.

Rough Seas Outside Maine, Come Ashore, Land Your Vessel.

Rough Seas Outside Maine, Come Ashore, Land Your Vessel.

Not tied to heavy debt or chasing the dollar. Home made permanent. Not store bought temporary or throw away.

Self inflicted, a choice to remove all that glitters, for the blue and green that sparkles brightest in Maine. Frugal is not cheap in the striving to live in gentile poverty. Having more than you need, plenty to achieve a worthwhile life for you and loved ones. That’s contentment.

Less focus on yourself but a shift to the way it used to be most places.

Consideration for others, especially less fortunate. Reaching out to help folks in need. Not rewarding laziness of able body folks that are content to live off the system. But helping those too proud to ask for assistance. That were taught to expect more from themselves, to stand on their own two feet. To feel pretty self sufficient, the reward of doing it yourself independence joy.

Maine, She’s Rugged, Real, Challenges A Person. Helps You Define What Is Important.

How you chose to look at events, situations, people around you is why Maine offers a simpler, easier approach. The key ingredients for healthier, happier living. Because what is of value is not plugged in, not plastic, not used for causing envy.

When you live in Maine, or make being here a big part of your life, you seek out those private, quiet places, spaces to recharge when unplugged.

Letting go and getting the answers needed. That just don’t get addressed when a person is forced, or chooses to live where it is too crowded. Expensive, not safe and very noisy. Can not hear yourself think. Get to Maine.

Her diamonds are yours for free.

As you gaze out over the water on a sunshine reflection in the gentle hypnotizing movement, sway of the waves.

Her treasure is the heating, cooking with wood you cut yourself. Being grateful for the little things. Because you removed one by one all the expensive ones that rob your life. Make your worry, run scared but that you thought you had to have. That everyone else is after so you blindly follow the herd.

Break away, head north to the outdoors of Maine. Where no one is a stranger for long if you smile, wave, make an effort to reach out, connect.

Strangers, You Won’t Bump Into, Find Many In Maine.

Strangers, folks that are elevator contained quiet, not making eye contact.

Keeping pretty much to themselves in the small area surrounding them. When you live in Maine, the wide open space changes all that. You don’t worry about anyone approaching from the side at a fast pace. Your survival defense systems don’t kick into high gear.

Maine Flowers

Fresh, Maine Morning Flowers After Overnight Shower Starts A New Day In Vacationland.

Unless you are traveling in Maine, and four long, spindly legs are spotted in the high beams. Maine moose at 1 o’clock. A very large Maine moose.

Those majestic beasts of the Maine woods make very large vehicle hood ornaments.

Hitting a black bear at a healthy clip is like meeting a bag of cement. Spinning Boo Boo around and gyro twisting him into your car back door. Causing a call to your local body shop. To employ the dent puller, frame machine for realignment to factory vehicle specs.

But back to not a lot of strangers in Maine. I stopped into a country corner convenience store Sunday night. And noticed New York plates on the car closest to the glass door next to the check out as I trotted in. After an Uncle Henry’s, little snack and standing in the check out line. Said hello, smiled at the father and son ahead of me. It startled the pair.

The silent communication trumpeted in the look harpooned back saying “who are you, we don’t know you” part of the defense system.

Second nature to someone living in a very crowded, not so safe, can’t ever be too sure city setting. It made me think how friendly folks in Maine are. Unless you start on a chant of “back in Jersey” blah blah blah. Then the locals retreat a tad because of the ding to the area we are so glad to live, work, play in day and night.

Maine. We Stick Together, Like Momma Duck, The Kids In Tow.

Where we feel very fortunate to raise our families, run our small businesses, explore and tramp the great outdoors all four seasons.

When less people live in an area, those folks are more aware of each other.

Not so afraid to communicate and we don’t shut down. Get all reserved and self protective. Because Mainers are used to helping each other out. Whether it’s the guy down the street with the plow that blows open the end of your plugged with snow driveway.

Or when your vehicle hood is up and you need a battery jump start. No shortage of folks that rally, are up for the challenge. To do what they can to get you back on the road. To where you need to be, were headed before a flat as a pancake battery charge happened.

Maybe the advice don’t talk to strangers as Kevin points out to the cashier in the movie while holding down the fort alone.

Picking up a few essential grocery items. Giving TV dinners a whirl. Grabbing a small jug of laundry detergent.

We need, help, work together in Maine. Have to because less people means more aware of the local population. Working events, traveling in the same smaller circles. And all holding inside a fierce love, pride of where we are lucky to live. The place with the space called Maine. Dagnabbit. Don’t stay away so long. Come sample ME.

Or not even that, just don’t complain, whine, make a fuss. We are all pretty high about Maine’s outdoor, lower populated, tight small town connection. Don’t need reminders about how lucky we have it. We know, are grateful. Inside job that radiates without words. Written all over our faces.

But the dull, jagged edge verbal knife sawing back and forth in conversation about another thing you don’t like about Maine but back in Jersey they blah blah blah.

Can prompt someone, with all due respect, to suggest why not move back to Jersey? Or ask again why was it you landed in Maine again? What brought you here, was the attraction? How to handle that first year moving to Maine, being the new kid on the block.

Maine Is Small Town Simple Living

Maine, Our Kids Are The Treasure, Jewels.

Consider the entire ball of wax, the whole nine yards. Overall what was the kick in the pants that caused the move to Maine? Low property prices, so no mortgage or not one hanging around your neck for long. Acreage not inches surround the sticks and bricks. That if you are lucky, living right is parked smack dab on a lake, pond, river, the ocean front.

4th lowest crime state, cost of insurance cut by two thirds, friendly people that make eye contact. Are polite, let you go in traffic, hold doors open for you.

Say hello.

Maine. The clean water, fresh air and S-P-A-C-E. The four season outdoor fun Maine is. Scores second to none in that department hands down. And it just builds from there. Watch, listen to Maine FAQ video of questions we field every day.

Maine Is Outdoors, Simple Living.

On The Water, Glad To Be In Maine, Vacationland Full Time.

Hold onto that thought, feeling, carrot that guided the squeaky wheel pony cart.

Up Instate 95′s new 1-305 numbering mile markers. The glow in the dark guide to where are we now, how much further for the toddlers asking.

Kicking your kidneys from the back seat as boredom settles in. Does the twist of a knife teasing.

Caused from being folded in two, doubled over.

Trapped like a large, over sized package in a small, no darn right tiny car cocoon.

Its black magic tainting, infecting the atmosphere of a very long vehicle ride. That takes it’s toll. When it’s hot, everyone is cranky tired, bone weary. Tired of vending food, what was packed for sandwiches three days ago squished, squashed in the Igloo cooler. The AC is on the fritz, on strike again wouldn’t you know it. Wouldn’t that cramp your grandmother as my Mom would say. Humidity air level percentages blast off, skyrocket. Whew. Can we go any faster to just get there? Oh yeah, 75 miles per hour helps cover the ground nimbly. Without the blue lights to ease the pedal to the metal reflex.

Cross the Green bridge and leave all your did not like about Jersey behind. Or whatever state, and replace that red air expelled on your Yoga mat with taking in the all blue and green air of peace. All that quiet.
