Bert and I @ Bean's

Bob Bryan and Marshall Dodge

It's a quiet snowy Sunday here in Maine. A perfect day to pull up a stump and listen to stories by the fire. I happened upon this Youtube video of Bob Byran telling the original Bert and I story.


You can hear more from Bryan and several other wonderful Maine storytellers next
Saturday at L.L. Bean in Freeport.

From the blog, Dispatches from Islandport:

Grab Gagnon and Virgil Bliss, fire up the ole’ Bluebird, and join “Bert and I” co-founder Bob Bryan and other Maine humorists as they pay tribute to the legendary “Bert and I” at L.L. Bean on Dec. 13 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. That's Bryan on the left, above, and Dodge, you guessed it, on the right.
The special 50th anniversary tribute performance will feature not only a rare public performance by Bryan, but also Tim Sample, John McDonald, Rebecca Rule, Kendall Morse, and Fred Dodge, brother of Bryan's co-founder, the late Marshall Dodge—an unprecedented gathering of storytellers who have been inspired by the work of Dodge and Bryan.
