I’d like to lighten things up a bit as we continue to enjoy the January doldrums here in Maine. I don’t know about you but I’ve been a big fan of Jeff Foxworthy for many years. He has a tremendous sense of humor which is wrapped up in all that redneck nonsense but he still makes me laugh out loud on occasion. I came upon this routine of his that I’m sure has been around for a while but it’s worth sharing with all of you. It’ll give you a true picture of what living in Maine is really all about. Here we go.

If your local Dairy Queen is closed from September through May, you might live in Maine.

If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don’t work there, you might live in Maine.

If you had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you might live in Maine.

If you measure distance in hours instead of miles, you might live in Maine.

If you know several people who’ve hit a deer more than once, you might live in Maine.

If you’ve switched from heat and AC in the same day and then back again, you might live in Maine.

If you can drive 75 miles through 2 feet of snow during a blizzard without flinching, you might live in Maine.

If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you might live in Maine.

If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you might live in Maine.

If you design your kid’s Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you might live in Maine.

If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you might live in Maine.

If you know all four seasons: almost Winter, Winter, still Winter, and road construction, you might live in Maine.

If you have more miles on your snow blower than on your car, you might live in Maine.

If you find 10° a little chilly, you might live in Maine.

I couldn’t explain Maine any better than that if I tried.
