Nah, but I was exploring my parent's garage, looking for forgotten childhood
things. Got my old sled, and some antique snowshoes, but I'm still looking for
my first science fiction book: Journey to the Mushroom Planet. My mother might
have gotten rid of it, convinced it was just one more pro-drug subliminal
message filled piece of propaganda....(she hates the beatles...she's a good
catholic girl, you know <g>)

I am exploring a new biking trail here in Lebanon built on an old railroad bed.
It follows the Mascoma River valley, overlooking some great whitewater, passing
by a covered bridge, and ending at Mascoma Lake. A good walk. I forgot to take
my fishing pole last time...
