Which Way to East Vassalboro?
In another thread, this was posted:
I immediately thought of this classic bit of Maine/Down East humor by Marshall Dodge and Bob Bryan in Bert and I:
Which leads to the inevitable question, What is your favorite Bert and I piece?

Maine-iacs, here's your chance to shine.

Please do us the favor of including a link to Marshall and Bob reading the piece.

NB: I cannot claim to be a Maine-iac. However, my family has owned property
in Oxford county since 19 & 27. My father's family has been in the area some
4 generations before him. He left to fight in WWII, and 'demobbed' and settled
in Baltimore to pursue his education at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore. (Family
members -- but not me -- in four generations have graduated from Bowdoin.)
Having broken the continuous year-round occupancy chain, in our small town,
we are considered to be 'from away' but far superior to mere 'summer
complaints'. ;-)
Like the migratory birds, genetic memory draws us back each summer.

I used to have a blue '72 AZ as nice as that one. He has the slide down well, but I cringe at the wear, and tear, lousy mpg. while tricking!!!!

I got 55mpg. with mine commuting at 50mph. on interstate, 45mphish on other 4 lane highways combined figure.

Part 2..... I like to make sound effects myself. 2 stroke motorcycle ring a ding ding,
sounds, I do a fairly decent 18 wheeler jake brake imitation; but the one I'm
most known for is "The injured dog"!!! LOL!!!!

The Bluebird is the first one I thought of when I read your first post. Thanks for posting it!

Here's the second one I thought of:
