Devanee & I went there on Friday to see the Jaguar XJS that was for sale. I was blown away. Lots of amazing stuff for sale in the Barn.

So we all want back on Saturday after the ‘Fairy House‘ festival. Very nice people and LOTS and LOTS of incredible stuff. I just wish I had the money. They really are selling the place and moving. So this is not one of those ‘fake’ sales. This is genuine. Good bargains to be had.

This is their Website: 1810house.net.

There phone number at the Barn is: 603-515-1765.

We got a hammock. Teischan has been asking for one for awhile now. Though we live on a dirt road, surrounded by trees we don’t have two trees on which to tie a hammock. So we needed a stand. This worked out. Teischan has already spent hours in it.

Yes, we know where they were coming from — ‘Castle in the Clouds‘ following the ‘British Cars of New Hampshire‘ (BCNH) and JANE (Jaguar Association of New England) ‘show-and-tell’ event.

Yes, we should have gone. We are BCNH members. But it is a question of time and priorities.

The Membership Person at BCNH drew my attention to this before I even realized. Once I had told him about my ‘crazy’ life — vastly complicated by my incurable addiction to writing — he asked me, via e-mail, point-blank: “aren’t you going to be TOO BUSY to attend our events?“. He was RIGHT! I should have saved my membership dues. But that is OK. Right now, as with ‘Comet ISON‘ and Pope John XXIII’s canonization I am working on a book — Pope Francis’ visit to the U.S. in September — that has a HARD deadline. So complicates matters further.

Devanee, understandably, was bummed. But, the kids understand. I feel bad for them. But they do get to go many places.

A short (1 minute) YouTube that still accurately captures the joy and magic
of an ‘Annie & The Orphans‘ concert. Cate Park July 11, 2015.

They have been at it, continuously, in central New Hampshire for an incredible 51-years and probably because of that (rather than ‘despite of that), the evergreen, ever delightful ‘Annie & The Orphans’ managed, yet again, last night to weave their magic over a packed, very appreciative ‘Cate Park‘ crowd — in Wolfeboro (‘the oldest Summer resort in the US‘), New Hampshire. ‘Annie & The Orphans’ for us Lakes Region “ol’ timers” is a perennial Summer/Fall favorite. We have followed them for decades as had most of those at the Park last night.

Their repertoire of 50s, 60s and some newer classics don’t change much over the years — let alone decades. But that is part of the charm. We all know the ‘Annie’ songs. The originals might have been by the GREATS but around here these songs belong to ‘The Orphans’.

We met about a dozen folks who had been with us at the ‘Blood, Sweat & Tears‘ concert the night before. Three of them, independently, said something along the lines of: “This so much better than last night”. That is one heck of a statement and I will have to concur. The folks who said this were in the right demographics to like BS&T in that, like I, they were older than 60. Tickets were BS&T were going at $35 to $80 and folks liked this better. Enough said.

Perfect night. Beautiful weather. Festive, carnival-like atmosphere. The happiness and joy in the air was palpable. You could feel it being stirred when Anatole Paquette (‘Annie’) waved his arms. We lucked out. His nephew (brother’s son), from Orlando, was on stage. The next generation.

They will be in Alton, NH, for “Old Home Day“, August 8, 2015. Be there or be square! [Did I just say that? SMILE. Hey, I lived through the 60s — in London no less.]

7-years old and he built this delightful house. He was so happy and proud. Came rushing over to tell us that this was his house. I asked him to sit and that I would take a picture together. You can see that he was not displeased.




This is such a heartwarming, ‘feel good’ event and yesterday was the perfect weather. That there were ‘baby’ ducks scampering around just added to the charm. We had a lot going on Friday and Saturday — with Devanee and I spending nearly 10 hours with the “Blood, Sweat & Tears” concert on Friday. But I was determined to get to Wolfeboro, before the ‘show’ closed at 2pm, to savor the event. We managed to get there at 1:30pm (thanks to my intimate knowledge of the back roads of Wolfeboro).

It is enchanting. Cate Park is the perfect setting. It was good, good, good. Very creative and cut houses. Even at 2pm there was a LOT of people around.
