  1. I like that she has a nice red cushion to sit on in the back of the truck.


  2. I think every boat in the 1960's - 70's had one or more of those cushions. They worked as life preserves, as well, apparently.

    Sometime in the early 1980's, a moose wandered up Mt Washington and was captured by a photograph. It made it all the way up to the Alpine Garden, which is pretty high up on the shoulder of the mountain above Tuckerman's Ravine. The photo made the Appalachian Mountain Club's monthly magazine. Moose were not as common in New Hampshire back then, and certainly never seen on Mt Washington. Thankfully, that has changed. Now we have to be more careful driving around dusk and dawn.


  3. Can't get enough of the moose photos. Thanks

  4. James Watkins - I couldn’t agree more! cheers!

  5. Years ago, fishing from a canoe in a northern Maine pond, we came through a channel between an island and the shore, rounded the point and 20 yards away saw a moose in the water up to his knees, head down in the water eating watercress. When he raised his head to look at us, his entire head and rack of antlers was covered with watercress, dangling down his cheeks like a big floppy green wig. We were laughing so hard at how ridiculous he looked we forgot to take his picture. Ah, the fishing trip memories.
