Kramer’s Korner

Hello again and welcome to Spring, finally. Well, at least it is a little warmer then it has been and all the trees are in bloom, and the motorcycles and mosquitos are back. I love this time of year because Bob tends to spend more time outside and I get to go with him. What’s not to like.

The last time I wrote, I promised to include more about the things we did when Angie, Bob’s sister in law, visited. She is a very active person so most every day she was here, we did something, even if it was just a ride. However, most of the time, our day trips involved a bit of walking and these stubby little legs got a workout. One day, we jumped in the car and drove north, stopping first at Snow Falls. It was a little chilly that day but not too bad and warmed up as the day went on. At least there were no crowds.

After spending some time here, we jumped back in the car and drove further north to Grafton Notch which is way up near the northern New Hampshire border to visit the state park and the beautiful Screw Auger Falls. Unfortunately, when we arrived, so did some rain, but not heavy enough to keep us from visiting the Falls. Bob and Angie both had waterproof hoodies. As luck would have it, as we were returning home, the sun broke through. We all agreed that we would love to come back here again in the summer and bring a picnic lunch.

I had a great time walking along the water’s edge and even tiptoeing in it once or twice. But it was a long day and I slept in my car seat most of the way home. But I’ll have to say, Maine is beautiful and I’m happy I’m getting to see some of it. Next time, I’ll tell you about our trips to Allen Park in Portland and hiking on the Libby Trails here in Gray.

So, until next time, keep a smile on your face and a treat in your pocket. And to my yet homeless friends, don’t get discouraged. There is a family looking for you. I promise.

This is Kramer signing off.

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.
