    is that the recently fully retired president of Cal Maritime maintained his home in Castine and is now joyously enjoying his life. I have the town pretty well romanticized in my mind.

      post them here. They won't be as good as Eddie's or Ace's, but they will be pretty. Castine is not too far away, I don't think, but it's not on Deer Isle.

      I'm just glad to have a personal ferry from Mid-Coast. That is a BIG DEAL. Only 45 minutes, but wow. I don't have to move my car. Or drive three and a half hours to go 45 minutes on the coast. The cat already knows, he's walking in and out of his carrier. He knows we're going on a boat and he can't wait.

      What cat does that? Mine, I guess. While I'm gone, my cousin and her husband will be up at The Rock. For a few days. They never stay long.

      I resent that. I demand snark, and overly so -- Markos Moulitsas.

        like that, my local watering holes and her denizens would never know I moved 35 miles away as the tipsy seagull flies.

          queen's gentleman's boat up to Deer Isle. I'm being set up, Steven. Totally set up.

            but didn't want to say. I know you will handle it like the gentleman you are. The most important thing...have a great time!

              guy my age (three years younger) in a sort of casual way. However, being tempted with a person half my age is a nasty thing to do. I must be strong. And resist.

              (I might. I'll try. Who am I kidding?)

              My friend really has it out for me. However, she means well. Ugh. Maine is full of this kind of stuff. Everyone is vulnerable, and there's only a million and a half of us in a very large place. Terun, however, continues to approve of whatever I do as long as I take care of his debt to the IRS and the Water Board in Trenton. Which is, apparently, now my responsibility. Which I'm happy to have.

              But he'd want me to look at all options. And always be safe on the water. ;)

                and be polite. Get as far up past the supervisory hurdles as you can go and then ask for the debt to be lowered and settled through monthly payments.

                As far as getting your groove on, well, you aren't a monk and Terun pretty much had to have known that ;)

                  Terun told me to get my groove on. It was one of the last things he told me, while he was showing off his wedding ring to his twin brother. Trust me.

                  I never endanger myself, except emotionally. That I can handle. Health wise, absolutely never, or I wouldn't be alive.
