number who "clicked through" to see more was even
better. Hopefully you enjoyed what you read. Also,
thanks to those who wrote us expressing their
approval. We'll try to keep up the good work.

Hi folks. Many of you took the opportunity to swim
with me this summer, sometimes too many. A few of
you even tried to teach me how to make a left turn -
you all failed. But thanks for trying. I had lots of
guests this summer and made loads of friends. Here's a
few. I may have some BIG news for next month. Stay
tuned. Oh ! Please stop telling Dad that he's not
giving Chelsea any newsletter space !

|WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY!
Congratulations to Phil and Deb Locastro who
celebrated their honeymoon by riding their motorcycles
from New Jersey to Buck Hollow Farm and sent us a

No longer will first time guests think they're "running
out of road" when they hit the dirt section of Buck
Hollow Road. No longer will speeding trucks be followed
by a huge dust cloud. No longer will we decide it
doesn't pay to wash the car. BUCK HOLLOW ROAD IS
PAVED. Bikers and cyclists can now arrive and leave
without worry about the first few minutes.
We have found that after a long day exploring
Vermont, many guests would prefer to just "hang out"
in the sunroom rather than get back into their car to
get a bite to eat. As a result Jacquie, using her secret
recipe, has prepared a supply of frozen pizzas for
guests. Available within 20 minutes, these pizzas
come in individual, medium and large sizes. Better
than Mamma Mia's, they'll taste even better in front of
