My New England...Sort Of A Photo History Of Me!

Everything You Wanted To Know About Me & Alot You Didn't

A little of this, a little of that, but nothing about Lackland AFB,
if that's what you came for ...now it's all about me since Hahn,
and our travels on the backroads and byways of New England.

Most of the photos are of me...I've been told by the cook, that I
can use any of her taken with the lencap on or those picked by
her; and since I like to eat regularly, I've agreed to her request.


"ME...AFTER HAHN!"




HOME AGAIN ...A PHOTOGRAPH ESSAY:
THE FIRST LONG SUMMER AFTER HAHN
AND A FEW OF THE SUMMERS AFTER IT.

IN BETWEEN THE  FIRST  PHOTOGRAPH
AND THE LAST, I  WORKED FOR  AN U.S.
CONGRESSMAN,  A SMALL NEWSPAPER
AND,  A LARGER ONE  FOR TWENTY-SIX
YEARS,  BECAME THE  SEVENTH  OF MY
FAMILY  TO OWN THE  SAME HOUSE  IN
PAWTUCKET, AND  BECAME DISABLED!

VERY COMMON  WITH LARGE DOGS,
AND IRONICALLY EX-DOGS LIKE ME,

WE'RE FINE BUT WE CAN'T TRAVEL
LIKE WE USED TO ...BUT AT LEAST I
CAN STILL WALK, BUT NOT TO FAR,

A DRUNKEN TURTLE, THAN A HARE,

BUT IT'S OK...IT COULD BE WORSE!
I MIGHT HAVE HAD FLEAS AS WELL

LOL
