Freddie’s Towing

Freddie of Freddie’s Towing in Vassalboro, Maine

I’ll be kinda sad to leave this place. Amazing, ain’t it?

My dead aunt’s dead Toyota leaves the premises! That’s Freddie, of course, whom I took an instant liking to. Freddie talks like no one I have ever met before, and I have been around. One could easily feel at home here up in backwoods Maine. Not for the mosquitoes, but the people. Freddie doesn’t know it, but he made a friend.

[Actually, that might not be Freddie, I just assumed he was. But he’ll always be Freddie to me!]

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

      But Freddie is still with us, dar. I take it you don’t think he’s being safe?

    I like the way Freddie’s attention is concentrated on the job at hand. That Toyota ain’t gonna get away on his watch! A beard, a gut and a ballcap makes it all about perfect. Freddie, I proclaim you a good ol’ boy, Maine-style.

      I like Freddie! Nice to find a local who looks crazier than I do.
