Kramer’s Korner

Hello again all my fans. Kramer here. Nice to see you again.

Fall is definitely in the air up here. Several mornings in the fifties when Bob and I go for our walk. I love it, but hey, I also like snow. I think, in a former life, I may have been a Huskie.

Well, Bob and I went on our trip up country as planned. It was a beautiful drive up the coast. It took longer then we thought as there was a lot of road construction in progress, but that just gave us an opportunity to look around and enjoy the scenery. It’s still a little early for the leaves to begin turning, but once they do, it will be beautiful, not that it isn’t already. We arrived late morning and found Bob’s cousins sitting outside the RV with a campfire going. The whole campground has about 70 campsites and sits right on the ocean. There was a cool breeze blowing in off the water. And, of course, there was Bella. We renewed our friendship and then we all went for a walk on a wooded trail to the waters edge. The picture below is of Cyndee and Carl, Bella’s mom and dad, and, of course, me. Bob said it was almost nice enough there to make him consider buying his own RV. Oh brother!! I know how he drives. Maybe he would be smarter to buy a jeep and a tent. Anyway, we had a great day. I’m ready to go back.

A couple of Sundays ago, Bob went to the Great State Of Maine Air Show up in Brunswick, about an hour from here. I didn’t get to go as they did not allow pets, probably due to the noise and the crowds. Bob said his seat was about nine rows back from the taxi strip and right opposite where the Navy’s Blue Angels were parked. They also had all kinds of static displays including a KC135 that is stationed at his old air base, and an Osprey aircraft that takes off like a helicopter, then flies like an airplane.

He said it was a great day and the aerobatics were awesome. Of course, when it was over, Bob lost his car in the parking lot and it took over forty five minutes to find it. He said he was ready to wait for everyone else to go home and the one that was left had to be his. By the time he did find it, the traffic was backed up for miles and he, of course, was on the tail end of it. The show got over about 4:30 and he got home about 6:45. Needless to say, Sophie and I were not impressed. It got pretty hungry around here and we both had our legs crossed.

My friend Vern, the “Smokin Trucker” was entered into a BBQ Cookoff contest that was held down in Westbrook, about a half hour south. He asked Bob to come down and sample some BBQ at the booths and, of course, vote for him. So Bob drove down Saturday, only to find the event was sold out. Vern neglected to tell him that tickets were on sale on the web as well as at the event. Just another day in the life of good old what’s his name. Oh yeah! Bob.

Well, I guess I will toddle along. Don’t want to get you guys too excited. Until next time, keep a smile on your face and a treat in your pocket. And don’t forget my friends that are still looking for a home. You would be their hero if you adopted or fostered.

Take care. Over and out.


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.
