I’m definitely not complaining. I am here in Portland, Maine on a lazy afternoon overlooking Casco Bay. It’s just after Memorial day weekend and the weather just turned the corner from Spring. We at experiencing temperatures in the 90’s and I am sitting in the shade of an old oak tree with a slight on -shore breeze. I’m in an an area in Portland that is know as the Eastern Promenade or Eastern Prom for short. In the the background is a row of stately old homes and the sound of the narrow gauge railroad for the tourists is passing below along the shore. I like to call this place my back porch. If your in the neighborhood stop by and bring a vodka and tonic. If I happened to be sleeping just leave it by my side.
