Keep Maine Green: Early one September morn, I was driving down a rural road in Maine, near the northeast corner of Moosehead Lake. Gorgeous, cool, dry, northwoods day, stellar. Just as I was taking a swig of coffee, this billboard appeared. Man, I hit the brakes. Coffee poured down my shirt. Damn it.
Putting my coffee mug down, I wiped off my shirt and popped the Jeep into ‘R”. I needed to see this thing up close. After backing up a bit, I put her in “P” and got out. What a great handmade sign, ever so cool. Loved it. From the backseat I retrieved my camera. Snapped a picture or two, and got back in the Jeep with a smile. Now I’ve seen my share of Smokey the Bear signs, but this baby had all those beat, hands down. The message was so direct, so well-said, so unforgettable. Yeah this is God’s Country; lets keep it green.
