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.

I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.
