I’ve recently returned from a marvelous, if all too brief, visit to Key Largo, Florida. Florida is a great place for a Maine humorist at this time of year. Obviously the weather, with temps in the high 70s low 80s, is a welcome break from the frigid March madness we’ve been “enjoying” in Maine this year, but there’s another factor that can’t be ignored. In late winter and early spring there seem to be darned near as many Mainers in the Sunshine State as there are back home.
Hi there! This is Ida LeClair reporting in from Mahoosuc Mills, over here in western Maine. Never heard of Mahoosuc Mills? Can’t find it on a map? Well, it’s true. We’re not on a lot of maps. But trust me, we’re there! You just have to know where to look.
My niece Caitlin convinced me to do this. She said blogs are the hottest thing going, and I like to keep up with what’s happening. I figured writing a blog would take less time than having a Facebook page, which Caitlin said can “totally take over your life.”
