About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. OMG you have to be kidding me. What is WRONG with us. Jail and a fine for trying to save his wife? Ya know…


  2. Big time. It’s insane. What can we do about it? Any ideas? Petitions, letter writing? What?

      I suspect it is because he is the smuggler, not unlike the human traffickers that are sneaking the illegals across the Mexican border. She as the illegal immigrant will probably be booked and deported. However, we never seem to catch the smugglers on the southern border.

    I live in US and my husband is Canadian. We have spent thousands of dollars to get him a green card and his right to be a permanent resident. Now the President wants to give all these illegal a green card. GIVE them one. What is wrong here?


  4. I shall hold my tongue

    I wonder how many of these illegal immigrants are of the criminal element (just what this country needs-more criminals)

    It would have been cheaper to fly to Mexico and come over the border with the rest of them. 🙂
