Kramer’s Korner

Hi again all my faithful followers. Kramer here. Doesn’t seem possible that another two weeks have expired since I last wrote. It might be that I have been spending more time outside with Bob. We have been experiencing some hotter weather then is normal for Maine at this time of year. We have had several days in the high eighties and today is in the low nineties. Bob was running around the front yard this morning with a hose. He seeded the lawn the other day and needs to keep it wet. Thankfully,he maintained a modicum of decency by wearing cool but not overly revealing clothes. He may have lost weight but, come on, he’s no Brad Pitt.

Last week, we threw his backpack in the car and drove down to Two Lights State Park, one of Bob’s favorite spots. We can sit up on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and enjoy a little respite from the heat. In fact, it gets chilly. I’m guessing the incoming sea breeze dropped the temp into the high sixties while it was low eighties back home. We came here last year, but it was different this time in that there were a lot of people. Bob said that’s the way it used to be. I loved it. As you can see, I mostly hung out on a bench working on my tan and entertaining all the admiring visitors that walked by.

Bob took some pictures. As the afternoon went on, the tide began to come in, so visitors and sport fishermen had to leave the rocks. The sky and clouds were beautiful. I don’t know the name of the island that you can see in the distance, but it is close to a place called Kettle Cove. I wouldn’t mind living there, but Bob says the property values are in the two to three million range. I got the impression that he doesn’t have that. He just gave me a look.

This weekend Bob volunteered to help out the Humane Society event, giving free vaccine shots to dogs and cats. They had a good turn out. He has some pictures, but I don’t think he has edited them yet, so I will talk more about that the next time. So, until then, this is your old pal Kramer saying keep a smile on your face and a treat in your pocket. And a shout out to all my still homeless friends. Someone is looking for you. You just haven’t found each other yet.

So long for now.


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.
