Weird Guy With The Dog?

This is the story of a guy who always loved the ocean.  I grew up beside it in Maine, and I think my blood is part salt water!  I spent many hours as a boy sitting on the rocks in Cape Elizabeth, dreaming of sailing ships and distant shores.  I dreamed of adventures on the high seas, traveling to foreign lands filled with ancient ruins and treasures to discover.  As I grew older I became wrapped up in never ending circle of accumulating more and more “Stuff” that most people think will bring them happiness.

5028453_20150323090259626_5_XLARGEI find I have come full circle.  I gave up everything I had, I travel the country in a truck with Vinny my dog, and I’ve bought a sailboat!  I started this blog to write about things I’m doing, things I’ve done and things I hope to achieve.  I tell of the difficulties of caring for ageing loved ones and the trials of my past. Soon I will include my travels on my boat and my attempt to be as free from modern trappings as I can be.  My future is a sailboat, the sea and my dog.

  1. Very interesting to someone who hardly ever gets out of Maine to see the beautiful country we are a part of! Enjoyed talking with you and thanks for sharing all of this with all of us!


  2. How can I resist the name of your blog? You liked something I said (probably nonsense – most of what I spout is nonsense) on Two Wives wonderful blog and hey presto bongo, I find myself genuinely loving your blog – so you earned yourself a follower. Don’t let me down ;)o

    1. I wish I had thought it up! It was a nickname given to me by some people I worked with, and it just stuck. It definitely fits my personality, so why not keep it! I hope I can live up to the quality of many other bloggers I read. I will tell my truth, and hope for the best!

  3. Hi there from Australia. Just found your blog and very much resonated with me. I love my dogs too, as well as getting out and about camping, taking photos and, oh yea,I’m a bit of a stress head myself! Look forward to reading more of your stories. Cheers from down under!

  5. Being a veteran blog award recipient, you can push the others aside and make a special place for the most prestigious award in blogging..
    The Pan Global Award
    There are no requirements for receiving this award.. Just know it places you among the cream of the crop.. You can find the award in my menu under Home on the road.. Eventually I’ll learn how to actually send it to you 😄

  6. So happy to have found your blog. My husband (Steve Newcomb Photography) first told me about your blog because of Vinny and your Maine connection and now I see we have a mutual friends in Miriam (Out an’ About)

    I was born and raised in New Hampshire close to the coast. York Beach is where I spent most my time. Sitting on the rocks staring out at Nubble Light is still my favorite place in all the world. I’ve lived in several other places and nothing compares to Nubble Light.

    Vinny is a doll. His little face is perfect. 🙂
