Good Morning, Everyone!         🌊 MAINE:  TOPIC OF DISCUSSION 🌊

🎶 If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air…Quaint little villages here and there,
(You’re sure)..You’re sure to fall in love with OLD CAPE COD (CAPE COD, that OLD CAPE COD)…If you spend an evening you’ll want to stay, watching the moonlight on CAPE COD Bay….You’re sure to fall in love with OLD CAPE COD...🎶 “Old Cape Cod” – Patti Page – 1957

🌊. I’ve been to Maine a few times, but never quite like this,
I didn’t board a little boat and sit back quite in bliss…
I do remember sailing there, and fishing with delight,
And cooking in the GALLEY on those cozy star-filled nights…
We ate, we DRANK, we sang along with music that we knew,
And “Old Cape Cod” was always heard upon the ocean blue.
There was no cause for MUTINY, we travelled that whole summer…
IMPEL is causing me distress…the tense an awkward bummer…
The Coastline there’s quite beautiful, the sea food really grand,
I’d recommend to anyone a visit to “MAINE-LAND”! 🌊

With none of today’s words being new, there was no cause for pause…IMPEL, in fact, was seen here as recently as June 22nd. Finding ourselves on the waters surrounding MAINE’S COASTLINE, today we see a tourist couple, clad in Life Vests, being motored by a bearded Guide dressed in overalls. The dialogue and question of our cartoon serves up our solution on a silver platter…With the Guide mentioning the PINE TREE STATE, the question stating the LARGEST NEW ENGLAND STATE, and knowing that a COASTLINE borders LAND….Our solution? “MAINE-LAND”. Very clever, David…a TREEmendous pun!

Ok, eye candy…Admitting that I know very little about MAINE, I’m unable to identify the GRAY LIGHTHOUSE. There’s beautiful green landscaping, and grayed rock formations surrounding it. Looking to do some research, I read that there are 65 historical lighthouses, spread along MAINE’S Coastline. So I began looking at pictures…And here I am…STILL unable to identity our Lighthouse! And figuring that I may have already insulted the MAINERS amongst our readers by highlighting “Old Cape Cod” as my song choice, I’m going to stand down and defer to Jeff, or to you, our readers. If you can identify the Lighthouse in Jeff’s drawing, and would like to share it with us, please write in and do so….As for my song choice, when I think NEW ENGLAND, I think CAPE COD. Yes, I’m aware that it’s in Massachusetts, but I plead being New York born and bred; and having visited there many times, it’s a place near and dear to my heart. Oh, right, the candy…On the iPhone our woman is holding, Jeff’s showing the reflected image of the panel’s scene in miniature detail. A MINUTE ABSOLUTE! Kudos, Jeff. So, there you have it Folks, Done…Or today, perhaps somewhat undone! My apologies…Have a great day, Everyone! And I’m really hoping someone sheds some LIGHT on the LIGHTHOUSE dilemma! 🌊🙋🏻
