foliage just over the horizon, a reminder about the foliage
photography contest mentioned last month. The winner and
runner up each will receive a weekend gift certificate to the
inn, with the winner also receiving Jacquie's pizza and home
made Vermont maple ice cream. More details next month, but
basically we ask you to submit a photo taken in Vermont this
foliage season. We will post them to the web and have voting
done by you during a certain period of time with the winner
being announced at the end of November.
Due to space issues we
are unable to list all the wonderful events in and around
Vermont and Montreal every month but note that we have provided
a link in case you would like more detailed information.

Hollow" would have been a better name, or
better yet "JAWS". Nothing escapes
those sharp baby teeth - beginning with me.
You can guess the usual victims, but how about bark
from a tree, cut grass, ice cubes, Mom's

This place is turning into a first aid clinic. I'm
told over and
over again how patient I am. Maybe so, but
pretty soon "Patient"
may be a label for him - not me (if you catch my drift).
At least I've had some very nice four legged visitors at
