When I read this, on my pad, lying in bed, this morning, drinking coffee and listening to CNBC, it cracked me up.

So British. Ahh.

Our humor. So classic and so precious. I feel blessed that I somehow came to ‘get it’ though, alas, I am only a Brit by naturalization.

It was naughty. Very naughty. Yes, I can understand folks being upset about it. But, by the same token, we don’t complain about the 4th of July celebrations.

Cracked ME up, but it would.

My type of humor, though I am a tad more savvy and politic — having bummed around the International Diplomatic scene for decades.


What Would ‘James Foley’ Have To Say About This Stolen Sign & The Arrest?

Though he is kind of ‘local’ I did not know James Foley. [I am not sure whether he is related to the Foley Oil folks. I have been meaning to find out.]

I wish I had known James Foley. From what I have read and heard he seems like a real neat person, kind, caring and a true humanitarian.

So when I saw this SAD story about a homeless man arrested, and held on bail, for stealing a James Foley memorial service sign, in Rochester, N.H., it perturbed me.

What would James Foley have said?
What would James Foley have done?

Seems a bit extreme to me — and, furthermore, I think, it detracts from the James Foley story and the efforts to commemorate (and even celebrate) his life.

I could be wrong but this seems like an over-reaction. Couldn’t they just have taken the sign away from this poor man — and poor would appear to be the appropriate word.

I honestly don’t know what the deal is. IF somebody does please contact me. My contact info. is on the sidebar >>>>

Can I just pay his fine, bail him out or whatever? What needs to be done to get this poor man out of prison and have this ‘charge’ taken care of.

I will do it as my part in honoring James Foley. This story has to go away and it has to have a GOOD ENDING.

We, in New Hampshire, owe it to James Foley.

I think we are better than this.

I made a point on my run up (and down) Prospect Mountain Road today to check on the foliage. It is a good, representative, rural N.H. dirt road when it comes to trees and vegetation. Plus, from the near the top I can see for miles across a beautiful vista of Belknap mountain hills. 99% green. Some dead branches. Just one tree, in a stand of three, where about 80% tree was a deep, rich maroon. That was at the edge of the Taylor (Blackberry) Farm. It was on this road that I spotted real foliage at the start of August last year.

The near ubiquitous Stag’s Horns around here, as shown in this picture, are getting orangy tips. Cute.

So that is about it. Not running tomorrow. My day off. But, I will, per my brief as a Foliage Updater keep you posted. I think, judging from what I saw in Gilford Saturday, that foliage will be upon us in Alton quickly.
