Doah Yahd

I once remebah Bruce’s treatice on how to visit a Mainah.  Something about Downeast manners and a key latch and keystring.  Bruce, do you still have that?

Oh a Doah Yahd is n., The front lawn or front of the house.  For those that don’t know Mainah speak, see:

You know you're from rural Maine when:

1. Your idea of a traffic jam is ten cars waiting to pass a tractor on the highway.

2. "Vacation" means going to Bangor for the weekend.

3. You measure distance in hours.

4. You know several people who have hit moose more than once.

5. You often switch from "heat" to "A/C" in the same day.

6. You use a down comforter in the summer.

7. Your grandparents drive at 65 mph through 13 feet of snow during a raging blizzard, without flinching.

8. You see people wearing hunting clothes at social events.

9. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

10. You think of the major food groups as moose meat, beer, fish, and berries.

11. You carry jumper cables in your car and your girlfriend knows how to use them.

12. There are 4 empty cars running in the parking lot at the convenience store at any given time.

13. You design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit.

14. Driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow.

15. You think sexy lingerie is tube socks and flannel pajamas.

16. You know all 4 seasons: almost winter/winter/still winter/construction

17. It takes you 3 hours to go to the mall for one item even when you're in a rush because you have to stop and talk to everyone in town.

18. You actually understand these jokes and forward them to all your friends from Maine.

If you are not from Maine but want to live here the application is heah: Application
