I'm now in a Super 8 in Bangor, Maine. Such luxury! Yesterday my brother and I went to Bar Harbor with his friend Bob. We went downtown and had lunch, then drove to the top of Cadillac Mountain. What a view... The coast of Maine is unparalleled for beauty. The only problem, according to my friends here, is that there are no jobs and Mainers are being taxed to death. I went over to my "second family", the Dionnes, last night. It was like a dream to see them again. It seems like I've entered a parallel universe when I see them. So much time has gone by. Today my brother and I are going to our old neighborhood, Boutelle Road in Bangor, to take some pictures and video. Then it's off to Orrington, where I grew up, to see my childhood friend Charlie Haskell. It's great to see old friends again after all these years. I'm kinda starting to miss Arizona and Mom, though.
