JG and JA, Chesterfield, NH

jg-and-ja-9413Two old friends that I originally met circa 1984, and as we live in three separate states, only see sporadically. I’m happy to say we didn’t talk politics until late in the evening.

Victor-7461

Pretty amazing that our neighbor Victor has been playing in the Horseshoe League in Deep River for the past 52 years; he started in 1964!! This year he says he’s “doing ok”, averaging 24, down from a high of 33 in his younger days. (Rounds of 12, two tosses each round, 3 points for a ringer, 1 for landing within 6 inches, leaners included.)

Mssr. Demi-D’Amour appears to approve of his most recent acquisition, a 1955 MG TF 1500.

Mike Aiken On Vermont

April 21, 2015

I can’t fully explain it but Vermont is so unique, ordinary, unspoiled, commonplace, interesting, beautiful, astonishing and ghastly that I can’t get it out of my system. I tell people it’s like your favorite jacket or pair of jeans and every favorite childhood memory and adult romantic interlude rolled into one, wrapped in a psychotic’s vision of bizarre weather.”

I am happy to welcome an old friend, the semi-mythic former Vermonter Mike Aiken to this site; he will be posting whenever the spirit moves him, perhaps even with his own photographs of New England.

His comment above is perhaps the finest description of Vermont I’ve ever come across, and one I thought had been lost forever (last seen on our refrigerator door some eight years ago, and only recently rediscovered – originally sent in an email).

He lived in a caboose near the Canadian border for a time, and sold me some magnificent Lodgepole Pine poles for my own tipi experience in my formative years.

His first post is here.

He will also have his own tag (top right of each page), which will populate after three entries.

Enjoy!

Michael is an artist, poet and brother in faith who happened to need an author photo for a poem coming out shortly in Mason’s Road, an online literary journal, found here. This image from our visit a couple of months ago fit the bill.

The aforementioned JJ, the keystone arch bridge and (part of the) swimming hole.
