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
have no idea who sent it. It’s not signed, not anyw...

BUT SHE CAN'T THROW...
All I could think of was “she can run, but
she can’t throw.” Well, yes, I could. I could throw as well as my older brother; I
could run and hit, too, but in those days, my skills weren’t enough to get me a
slot on the Little League team—girls weren’t allowe...

BIRD'S-EYE VIEW OF RIO...
I’ve got a collection of photo albums in my
upstairs closet.           They’re
all shapes and sizes: There’s a small black one that’s full of old photos of my
grandfathe; my mother’s album from her youth and college days; a red one with flip
pages that my g...

WRITING ON POSTCARDS...
I’ve got lots of old postcards, but I never
can remember what’s on the front of them...Flowers, waterfalls, fat lambs with
snowy fleece; windmills, mountain views, chickens or contented cows; old men
sitting on stone walls, cheerful fireplaces in wayside ta...

BICYCLES...
For me, getting my first bicycle was my
ticket to freedom!           We
lived in Portland then, and my best friend lived
down the street; I actually learned to ride on her bike, then got one of my own
for my birthday; we rode all over the West End together....

I can see a few original buildings, Doug! Amazing that it's still there after all these years.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING...
I have a couple of old Good Housekeeping magazines up on the top shelf of the closet in my
office. Both are from 1923—one from
April of that year, one from October—and I spent some time this morning leafing
through the back sections, looking at advertisemen...

PORTRAIT of BEARD AND HAIR...
A trifecta here: a beard, great hair, an old
1885 portrait; there’s even amazingly bushy eyebrows—he’s got more hair than I
do, for crying out loud! He is the Rev. Ebenezer Gay, born 1792 in Walpole , Massachusetts ;
his older sister, Rebecca (1789-1842) ma...

WINTER DRAYS...
The squirrels were, quite simply, frantic before
our first snow; lots of last-minute gathering, storing and burying of nuts all
over my back lawn. Now, after our first snows have
come and gone and we’ve got bare ground again, they’re working from caches in

TO MUMMY & DEDDY...
I wasn’t very old, six or seven, maybe—but I
have a distinct memory of sitting at my desk at the McClellan School in
Portland, Maine in the early 1950s, a jar of glue (remember the glue jars with
the little applicator brushes stuck to the inside of the lid?...
