After Charlie and I had known each other a while and had progressed to talking on the phone, I asked him what part of Maine he lived in, the face, nose, or ears. He was momentarily speechless and asked me what I was talking about. (I get that often.) I explained that since Maine is shaped like a hand shadow rabbit, there are those of us who think of it as divided into those areas. Apparently, that's not a widespread concept. Perhaps I explained it better to Al in the Country or maybe because he's also not a native Maineiac, but he answered right away and typed, "the ears." Btw, Charlie lives in the neck of Maine. Is Kennebunkport under the chin?
See? What do you think?
