I did indeed see the post about the cookout. I've got a family "thing" earlier that afternoon, but I'd love to come by afterwards if I can.

Actually, I've been listing my mysteries and knitting books first, and my Maine and genealogy books will follow eventually.
Cheers from inland, and Tim, how cool that LT is from Maine. You do us proud.

Tim managed to pick one of the weekends this summer I won't be in ME for the LT cookout (pout!).

Longfellow, born just around the corner and down the hill from you on Fore Street, would be proud of LT. I'm sure he would join!
Let's send out the word for other (and living) Maine authors to show us their bookshelves!
Trivia: Can anyone locate Longfellow's birthplace (long ago demolished) by suggesting what one might smell there? (Hint: Not Portland Harbor at low tide and not baked beans if the wind blows from the northeast.)
In Maine I've always heard "whatnot" but never "suchnot."
As in: "Bert loaded up his gear, all his boots and traps, all his chum bags and chum buckets and traps, and piled his foul weather gear and whatnot in the bow, which made someone on the pier shout, 'Bert, she's wallowin'!'."
Is it suchnot or whatnot? Is there a regional idiom at work here? What would Marshall Dodge say?
"Cultch" is also a fine Maine word.

Hmm. I think we should let them vote.
btw, my (then) 84 year old mother was quite irked that Anita Shreve moved Fortunes Rocks from Biddeford to New Hampshire in her book by the same name. She was born and raised there, the only year-round people at the time.
