Lost Ferret in Springfield Vermont

Is anyone missing a pet ferret in Springfield Vermont? A small ferret-like creature was just seen scampering around, aimlessly or in a mild panic, on Prospect Street near the corner of Pine, he finally went into the bushes, perhaps down the hill to Pearl. He looked very like a squirrel except that he was a little sleaker, very dark brown coat, almost black.

Foreign Travel - Springfield Vermont to New Hampshire

There are more reasons for travelling from the Natural Splendor of Springfield, Vermont, City of Lights and Official Home of the Simpsons, to New Hampshire. Is it true that "a local Paradise for Tax-free Shopping" is what some call this happy State of the Union?

Perhaps, but the excellent sight-seeing trumps shopping any day of the week.

Aqui una vista de Charlestown, New Hampshire, un estado muy conocido por no cobrar impustos en las compras, pero igual da gusto viajar por sus andares y ver curiosidades, como esta maquina de volar.

Off Roading in Springfield Vermont.

What an unfortunate choice of turns, this driver had to leave his motor up in the air and go for a tow truck, as the note in the window explains.

El conductor ó la conductuctora de este vehiculo infeliz, ha tenido que dejárlo tendido, e ir en busca de grua.

Bongo promises to stop chuckling and wishes him luck in getting a tow and a new GPS device.

Strange things happen on hot days in Springfield Vermont

Have certain so-called magic circles and unicorn parades been reported as having occurred during the late dog-hot afternoon hours on certain recent heatwave days here in Springfield Vermont?

Or is there another explanation for recurring image?

Night Painting in Springfield Vermont - Heat Wave Creates New Behaviors

Well, no one needs to point out that recent heat wave and it's miasmatic atmosphere, thick and oppressive as it was, interrupted the normal routines quite effectively here in Springfield, Vermont. Many lawns and shrubs suffered as underground springs withered away, and daytime patterns of activity were altered when possible.

One neighbor had the brilliant idea of illuminating the outside painting project in order to pursue completion of the task during a less roast-y time of day. It turns out that the actual air temperature did not decrease very much at all from that daytime high, but it was good to get to paint without the merciless glare of the Sun.
