Trip Aftermath

Of course, is a cold that I most likely picked up from someone on the damn plane.

I’ll be over here sniffling and coughing and attempt to see through the one eye that’s not swollen shut.

No Context For You – June 17th

While we complain about the ordeals of travel, and really, isn’t it stupid that we all have to take off our shoes every freaking time we get on a plane just because one inept terrorist tried (and failed!) to put explosives in his sneakers a dozen years ago, but having said that, isn’t it absolutely amazing that ordinary folks can get in a big aluminum tube and five hours later be in the other side of the continent, or on the other side of the planet in twelve or fifteen hours?

Vermont Omlette

I don’t blame Vermont.

This version of a ham & cheese omelette wasn’t designed by any left-wing political movement in Vermont, or a vegan restaurant gone to extremes, or even an embarrassing mix up by our waitress.

No, indeed I give the waitress some serious props for diving with both feet into her role of deception and subterfuge. She made it happen!

I do not blame the perpetrator of this switcheroo. A tiger can not change his stripes.

No, ultimately I blame myself. After a lifetime of experiences that should have left me hyper vigilant, I blissfully went and danced on the Bouncing Betty.

At least I wasn’t surprised when the trap was sprung. It’s all good fun, right?

Then the monster sent me the video that I hadn’t even noticed him taking…

Forty-Five Years

What a wonderful day with old friends, some of whom I see every few years, some of whom I haven’t seen since we graduated high school, 45 years ago.

It was lovely. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Verde Mont

It’s full of mountains. They’re all really green. Say it in French, quickly.

We spent the day driving around a great deal of it with only the barest of plans except to meet dear friends for dinner at 18:00 and to stay off of the interstate as much as possible.

And to see deer, loons, and moose. (Two out of three ain’t bad!)

Presents From Vermont

We got to Vermont after an overnight in the big metal tube flying through the troposphere, followed by a drive north from Boston.

In celebration, the great State of Vermont left us with some presents!

See, there’s our rental car parked out in front of the amazing Hartness House!

See, in the rain and wind we got a gift baby maple leaf! A symbol of the state and its wonderful maple syrup!

Wait, what’s this? Also a “gift,” but obviously not from any wonderful Vermont representative! This must be a “gift” from a New Hampshire or Maine bird!!
