I bought new clothespins this spring. I continue to be one of those odd Yankees who prefers to hang my laundry outside when the weather permits. In our modern ‘green’ society, why does no one encourage this? (Side note: my neighborhood forbids clotheslines. They also forbid my antique truck, my RV, and my chickens. TheyContinue reading “Don’t make them like they used to. . .”
Beth and I had a great ride today! When we got home, we discovered that we were the second highest fundraisers at our local ride. $156 would put us over the top, and donations are still open. . . https://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/mack505
We’ve met our goal. Thank you to all who donated! I’ve issued a matching challenge from now until 8:00 PM Eastern 9/28. Please see the video and donate here.
“The mountains are calling and I must answer.” I know not what attracts me to these mountains. They are pretty; they are majestic. I vacationed here as a child. They beckon to me with peace and calm even when out of my sight. And sometimes, I must go for a hike. I sit on aContinue reading “End of Trail”

It’s been a beautiful but busy weekend. I’ve done more calls with my two fire companies in the past 2 days than I did all week on duty. Sometimes it happens. I’ve been slightly neglecting the chickens, but I took time to feed and water before running off this morning. We have four chicken coops,Continue reading “Of fox and chickens. . .”
As mentioned, I’ve been developing film this week. Here are a few from our Lonesome Lake Hut/Cannon Mountain expedition. Shot on Ilford FP4+ with a Nikon FM2/50mm. Developed in D76.
Everyone is out of town this week, so I’m minding the family store. 18:00 hours, home from dinner after work. Fed my parents’ 5 cats and their feral colony. Warmed up the photo processor and the railcar. Fed and watered 14 chickens in three coops. Changed transmission oil in the motorcar; it’s going to getContinue reading “Why am I so tired again?”
It’s that time of year again, when I join the Mount Washington Observatory’s fundraiser, Seek the Peak. Last year I attacked New England’s Highest Peak, Home of the World’s Worst Weather, and succeeded before lunch. I also got some cool swag. This year Beth decided she wanted to climb with me. We dutifully registered forContinue reading “Seeking the Peak”
