Summer has finally arrived this year in Maine – after the torrential downpours of June and July, il sole ha retornato, grazie mille. August is glorious, and with the return of the sun, the son, Taylor, also returned after a month in Oxford studying Shakespeare. His mother called this venture “summer camp” . Taylor was not here long before he started working for Green Tree Coffee, a terrific company co-located here in Belfast (on the wharf no less) and New Orleans. The company, among other things, roasts coffee — you cannot get a cup of java but shortly one may purchase roasted coffee over the internet. The owner recently brought me a bag of newly roasted coffee calling the blend “Who Loves Ya, Baby?” For those too young to know, this expression came from Kojak, a TV police show from way back when. (Don’t ask.)
PS How do you like the new look of the blog? Three cheers for the master web designer, photographer and general Renaissance man Jim Dugan who gently reminded me that my blog did not need to look so generic and, well, boring.
