Years age I Pastored a church in northern Maine,
I was young and fresh out of college and from the South as well. I was out visiting the community one day and stopped in on this gentleman who was cooking some sap, we got to talking and he seemed real friendly and at the end of my visit he asked me if I wanted any Maple syrup. Of course, I said sure thinking he was going to give me some to take to back to the Parsonage. He disapears into his house and comes back out WITH A TEASPOON.

Give me some cane syrup any day (HA HA)

Randy, It has been over 30 years since I was in Maine, Told my wife that as soon as I got my transplant and recovered, I wanted to go back there on our next vacation. Sure hope I get to go in August or Sept of this year. Love it up there during the 80-85 degree summer :)

Well, Don, on your way to visit Maine, make sure you stop in New Hampshire and enjoy some of our hospitality. I think I'm the only one from NH who contributes to this forum, at least with any regularity.

True Les!! I only lasted four years. Pastored a small church just south of Houlton, in Linneus, Picked potatoes in the fall and worked for a burial vault company in the spring for some extra income. Realy enjoyed the snow-mobile in the winter. But hated those black flyes. Oh what memories !!!!!!!!!!!

By the way, had a friend over in Twin Mountain NH.

Twin Mountain is about 30 miles north of me. They have a nice little tractor show on Labor Day Sunday. I'm down the other side of "The Notch" from there.

Don, I'm from CT. I used to go across country every year on a motorcycle. I would meet a ton of people. When I would tell them where I was from they would get this look on their face like they just ate a lemon. " We were there once, they weren't nice to us". Every time. Got married in Maine a year and a half ago.

Thats ok when I would travel around and when I moved here to oklahoma people would ask where I was from and I would say Rhode Island and they would say is that near Long island? Or better yet,WHERE? Never heard of it.It's small but not unheard of I thought.Oh well.

Yankee, A lot of times I would just tell people New York. Everyone it seemed knew where that was. A lot didn't know CT either.

I had to explain where Vermont was to Mormons in SLC...

You'd think that they just MIGHT know where Brigham Young was born, eh?
