Stories from the hills of Western Maine
Glad you are back. I'll be off the blog for about four days. We're going to mom's 88th B-Day tomorrow. I'll be on autopost. Pappy
Oh Happy Birthday, sweet Aunt. Give her big hugs for me.
Whenever I traveled as a youngster, Mom would always comment that one of the most beautiful sights of our whole trip was looking at the mountains as we drove into Canton. Now when I come home from a long trip and drive into Canton and see the mountains I appreciate their beauty. Glad to hear that you made it back!
It's true, isn't it? There really is no place like home. Glad you all had a good time away Beth! :c)
SJ, what does that country song say, "the view I love the most is from my front porch looking in" or something like that. Anyway, it's good to be home and to catch up on my blog reading--sounds like you are having a perfect summer.Jayne,Thanks, it's good to be back and catch up on my reading, I missed your perfect pictures and cheerful prose!
For me it is the Maine/NH bridge. There have been trips in my life that just the signs saying "To All Maine Points" have made me cry.
There's something about the little landmarks: if you've been overseas, just getting off the ground and headed home is big. If you've been in the midwest, crossing the Mississippi; re-entering New England; the "Welcome to Maine: The Way Life Should Be" signs; and turning off of Rte. 4 onto 108 (depending upon where you've been, of course). I've been from other places, but I can't think of a better place to come home to.
Beth, so glad you and C had a good get away. We all need to recharge our batteries once in a while. But, you are right, in the end home is the best!
I agree. Coming home is always a highlight of a weekend away :o)New York City! It's been years since I've been there...
Agree, Dorothy was right, there's no place like home...
I love to come home from a trip. There's only so long that you can be away before home draws you back. Glad your time away was happy.
Glad you had a good trip. Cities are nice to visit, but not as nice for a home base.
My husband, Gus, would heartily agree with you! Right now, Maine looks wonderfully refreshing, but I still remember the photo of the cars emerging from the melting winter snow!
