The Home Town Movie You Starred In As A Kid, The ME House Had A Major Influence.

Where you grew up, the home your parents put up the Christmas tree in, the backyard you played catch in and all the neighborhood kids around it had a big influence on who you are now right ?

old 1956 mercury ford car If the home was very small, you shared a bedroom with your brother. Maybe it was not added on to, or Mom and Dad did not sell it to move to something bigger due to divorce, illness, a job lay off or another event in life.

In town, out of town comes with its pluses and minuses as a kid. The home near the rec center meant your basketball hoop shooting skills increased. The home in the country on a big chunk of land meant you had a horse, the responsibilities of taking care of critters. Helping plant, hoe, harvest the crops you sold at a road side vegetable stand.

But we're talking the house itself. As you wander thru the community you grew up in, one by one you recall who lives in that cape cod home on the corner. Back when it had a white picket fence, a big dog you avoided like the plague.

And that ME bungalow home was your first stop at Halloween trick or treating because of fresh, out of the cooking grease chocolate sugared donuts to die for.

And that old spooky Victorian 3 story home with the mansard roof you still believe to be haunted. The kids in the neighborhood you grew up with. Learning together, getting in to mischief, negotiating to get along during neighborhood baseball games when the sides were very lopsided. This location was the set for your early formative years life movie. The home was the cornerstone of "This Is Your Life" growing up movie set.

Do you live in a similar home, setting now to raise your family? Or you do it all different because you wished you could rewrite the script your parents crafted for you growing up?

Do you long for more space, less crime, no mortgage on the home where you park the Studebaker now ?

Maine, she'll grab your heart, get in to your system.

Great post. Growing up in southern Maine was awesome. Last house on the left on a dead end street just above the Presumpscot River in Westbrook. 

You have a great product to sell!

What a lovely way to draw folks into both the nostalgia and the reality of Maine living.  Right now I can only visit.

Michael...we'll put you on the longer range list for a table with a Maine harbor view, some lobster, steamed clams and a slab of warmed fresh blueberries with ice cold home made vanilla ice cream!
