This is great news. As with much of my life there was a very good reason why I was checking into this, this early (a lifetime away for me), when I am noted for not thinking much beyond the current week.

When we went to delightful, enchanting Strawbery Banke, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, on Mother’s Day I noticed that they do a July 4th spectacular. I wanted to go to that. But given that we had SO MUCH fun at Portland, Maine last year, and we all vowed to go back, I wasn’t going to do anything rash UNTIL I determined what Portland was doing. So this morning (by that I mean around 1:05 am) I finally got a second to check. Don McLean is going to be there again!

IF Don is going to be there … so will WE — the weather the only factor. I am not into getting soaked — not even for Don. So I will not brave it if it means I have to have an umbrella. Yes, I have watched Willie Nelson in the pouring rain for 2 hours — but I paid like $60 for the concert (and it was worth every cent and more, rain or no rain). So, I will be checking Portland weather … starting 10 days out. As long as it is not going to be ‘pouring’ down we will be there.


It is so cool that Don now lives in Maine.
