Oh, no, not the Vermont word

April 12th, 2016 ·1 Comment

It warmed up enough that I could get out and start putting mulch here and there – one bucketful at a time. I discovered that under the top layer, the mulch pile was frozen. Getting at it was like scraping frost off an old freezer – or one which  has not be closed correctly. After a while, I decided enough; I came in and started a wash. Of course, the dryer is kaput, but never mind, a new one is coming.

Actually, I had better mind, because the laundry room is a nightmare to maneuver appliances in and out of. When the washer came, I requested strong, agile, innovative thinking young men. They got it done. Please, let tomorrow go well.

Then I sat down and an ad popped up somewhere on the browser page about hand-crafted bracelets with whatever words you wanted on them from VERMONT. You know what Vermont is, don’t you? Yes, it’s Ethan Allen and The Green Mountain Boys. Back in the 50’s, this was big, fun stuff in school – almost like Robin Hood.

Vermont: the battle at Bennington and the Don’t Tread on Me flag.

But do I need a bracelet with words from some poem or Churchill on it. No, hey I’ve got a wrist and a magic marker.

    You do realize they don’t even teach about The Green Mountain Boys in school anymore don’t you? I’m sure there’s some big politically correct reason behind it. Sad.
