Two really good buddies of mine brainstormed with me today in New York about our plans for an eventual road trip to Maine. I’m posting this as a little incentive for us to firm up our plans in the coming months.
Our “Three Musketeers” thing worked out quite awesomely when we last headed north together, on a trip to Rhode Island maybe … 12 years ago? Tempus fugit. We’re long overdue for another adventure.
I’m not clear about whether “Say thank ya” is actually said in Maine. It is the vernacular for much of “Mid-World,” one of the many parallel universes depicted in Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” novels. And it is correctly quoted — it’s separate from the “Thankee, Sai” formal expression that we more often hear in the world of Roland Deschain.
