I've got some cow cards, too, Doug! From various towns in central and northern Maine -- clearly a big hit!

WALT KELLY and POGO
Cartoons; funny papers, Sunday funnies!           It
doesn’t matter what you call those panels of humor, but we all remember reading
them. For me, it was flat out on the floor on Sunday mornings with the
four-page color comic section: Dick Tracy, Blondie, M...

NOT HORSES, BUT HARNESS!
Writing historical fiction presents its
problems, for sure. Details of everyday life can be sticklers – clothes, dishes,
cookware, toys, books, lamps, furniture, tools, farm equipment – and it’s hard
to put yourself back there, hard to change your perspecti...

EASTER HORROR...
I’m drawn to postcard shows like a moth to a
flame; I’m unable to resist them.           I’ll
spend hours sitting in a nasty folding chair; hours flipping through stacks of
cards, looking for the early ones – early 1900s, that is. They’re easy to spot
by th...

UP ABOVE.
His name was Up Above.           My
mother named him when she was about six – and she spent every day of every
summer on him.           She
grew up in Boston, which was not an environment particularly suited for horses;
my grandparents, though, had a summer...

LOST AND FOUND...
Presented to Frank W. Meserve, Jr. By Preble Chapel S.S. for Not Missing a Sunday between Sept. 1926 to June 1927 I found it at an indoor flea market. It
caught my eye, not because bibles are hard to find—in fact, there are almost
always bibles jumbled into...

MY GRANDFATHER, ALL DRESSED UP...
It’s a Ward Flexible Album; a 7x5 black
leather book with “steel gray leaves,” made from Ward’s “puro” paper, and is
“guaranteed not to discolor the photographs.”           It belonged to my grandfather, Gardner Sabin Gould (1886), and it’s full of wonderfu...

It's the destruction of such lovely country that disturbs me the most, I think -- pretty terrible!

I lived on a dairy farm for years, and our cows would lie down whenever they wanted to; didn't have much to do with the weather...that old image of a contented cow: lying down, chewing cud, eyes halfshut...very true!

PATTI'S PAGES....
I’m an old piano player, in lots of ways; I’m
always drawn to displays of old sheet music in flea markets and antique stores.           I bought a whole box of it for a mere five
dollars, and inside found about fifty different songsheets, with lyrics, score...

IF THAT ISN'T LOVE...
It was mailed in Boston in 1848, folded into its own envelope
and sealed with orange wax; the recipient, Roxanna Adams Wilder, was my
great-great grandmother—she was sixteen years old in 1848.           We
