Well, now we know.

Thank YOU, to the ‘Family Steele‘.

That ‘Roger‘ is doing well is great news.

I will no longer, instinctively, slow down as I go by the farm in the hope of seeing ‘Roger’.

I have never been to ‘Charmingfare Farm‘. I now will have to, just to see ol’ ‘Roger’.

Well, not much more to add, so I will just say: “Roger & out“.

New Hampshire DOES NOT have a statewide law banning toplessness
just a local ordinance in Laconia.

Beautiful day. Would have been a SHAME not to go topless. Earlier in the morning I was wearing a 12 lbs weighted vest — but with nothing underneath. This was after I had taken that vest off. SMILE Somebody has to do it. We have to keep New Hampshire topless ready & friendly.

I, the WALKER.

It has to be for I. As you can see it is in the STICKS. Nobody walks in the sticks like I do. That is my domain.

Plus, I am SURE, nobody, in this town, walks as much as I do. SMILE.

Thank YOU. I am suitably honored.

The Famed Alton (NH) Snow Camel, ‘Roger’, May Already Be History!

As I told you 3-days ago, Roger’s farm is for sale & I could not see any signs of Roger when I did some scouting from the road. I also recalled that I had not seen him in quite a while.

Then, Deanna managed to dig up the listing. It starts by talking of Roger, vis-à-vis Alton, basically in the past tense — viz., “ONCE …”

Very clear that Roger is no longer at the farm. That is pretty clear.

Not sure what the implications are.

What happened to Roger the Camel?

The Famous Camel In Alton (NH), ‘Roger’, May Be Moving — Farm For Sale.

Drove by the farm, which is on Route 28, this morning & was very surprised to see the ‘For Sale‘ signs.

Haven’t been by there in over a week. So, not sure when the signs went up. Wow.

No idea why it would be for sale. The ‘young’ couple that owned it seems to have made a real go of it.

I got out to take pictures & maybe see ‘Roger‘. Didn’t see him or the bison. Just a few sheep.

Hhmmmm.

Can’t remember exactly when I last saw ‘Roger’. It was a few months ago. I had forgotten the bison!

Yikes. Is ‘Roger’ still there? We might have to make a movie: “Who Uprooted Roger Camel“.

Flowers In Our Yard — May 23, 2020.

If you are new to this blog, please be aware that ‘Flowers In Our Yard‘ is a regular & perennial feature of this blog. This is the first in 2020, but it is unlikely to the last — unless something rally bad comes to pass. So, you have now been warned.

I like flowers & I suffer the interminable New Hampshire winters thinking about the pictures of the flowers I am going to start taking in Spring. So, please indulge I. It shouldn’t be too hard. SMILE. Enjoy.

“Organically Moo’ed” Food Truck Now In Alton, On Route 28.

Current Menu
— Liable To CHANGE At Short-Notice.


It was an unmitigated delight to see this cheery Food Truck pop-up on the corner of ‘our’ road & Route 28. Let me be precise, the corner of ‘Prospect Mountain Road‘ & Route 28, by the YMCA camp.

They have bought the large grey building on that corner. There used to be vehicles & truck bits in the parking lot — presumably for sale. I gather it used to a restaurant & bar way back. I have been here 13-years & the eatery business precedes I.

But, it has all changed for the good. Genevieve Michaud (from Barnstead) has bought the property & will open it up as a CAFE when the pandemic is ‘history’. That will be cool. To have a nice cafe at the end of our road — & I can already tell that it will be ‘nice’.

In the interim, Genevieve has a delightful Food Truck out there. This is all good. I am so pleased.

In marked contrast to the McDonald’s in Alton (as I pointed out (& they have ACKNOWLEDGED), the Food Truck is TOTALLY CONTACTLESS. I like that. That is how it should be.

The Food Truck (which will morph into the Cafe) is on one of my walking/running routes. So, I will be going by it, on foot, at least once a week. Will I stop & get a coffee? That is the question. That will disrupt my sacrosanct routine & discipline. Will she EVER be able to tempt me to have some of her ‘Apple Pie Bread Pudding‘? Yes, her name has ‘Eve‘ in it, BUT I know, for a fact, that I have better discipline than Adam! SMILE.

Well, now you know where the Food Truck is. You even have the menu. Contactless takeout. ALL GOOD.

I wish them all the best.

The 2020 Graduates.

This ‘Virtual Graduation‘ tickled my fancy though I did feel bad for the kids.

In my first post on this, on May 7, I did say: “I will try and snap others if I see them and keep on adding to this gallery“. Well, I always TRY to live up to promises I make.

I am glad I stopped & walked around. I am used to walking around ‘The Circle’. It scares me not, & walking is not a problem. Glad I did.

Saw the pictures of two ‘kids’ I have known for close onto 10-years. That made me smile. I was glad. Quite a few names I recognized.

Well, congratulations. Well done.

Hope these pictures help. This post should be around for a LONG TIME. It is not going anywhere.

All the best. Cheers.


From last year.
