Creative: Vacation in Maine

Vacation Maine. I love this place. Just past season but the buses of Germans are still making the rounds. The lines for lobster still there. Sun, rain, wind and calm. Twilight. A nine-foot tide with currents swirling their power. I don’t touch the green. My body aches with ongoing Lyme-Stories. Family. Happy Hour. History. Truths are revealed. Secrets kept with promises. These times are for questioning everything we know. I want more.

  1. My wife’s people vacation in New Hampshire, the same manatees. Khaki shorts, boat shoes, preppy shirt, 3 trophy kids and a trophy wife. I’m sure they’re nice people to talk to, one by one, but as a class they’re awful awful people.

    1. I should clarify that we are not the manatees 😉 At least, I don’t think we are. Despite being affluent white people, in Wolfeboro we’re the poor relations hovering around the edges, renting a cheap boat for the day.

        Yes, they probably talk shit about you the moment you leave. I know I do. And I hope you would do the same for me.

      Well, there is a sub group of the Blue Bloods that remind of Judge Schmails in Caddyshack. “I’ve sent people younger than you to the gas chamber Danny. I didn’t want to do it but I felt like I owwwwwwed it too them.” But we’ve been hitting KBunkPort for many years now, and this year we got a great intro into the community at a very different level. And Amy’s family is very low key. Also met an amazing publisher. All in all a good trip. And I don’t own a shirt with a collar so I’m good.

  2. Fifty bucks the Schmails kid eats it!
    😉
    …Now there is a movie that reminds me of summer as a kid.

  3. Great big gobs of greasy grimy Gopher guts, greasy grimy Gopher guts.

    😉

    ohhh…you are tak’en me back man. Summer with my cousins in the country. 60 acre farm with horses, cows, chickens, pigs, motorbikes, 4×4 Broncos, dogs, guns and…satellite TV. We watched that movie 27 times. We always watched until the very end to see the Gopher dancing.

    …Got me smiling!
