Happy Official Start of Leaf-Peeping Season Day!

A beautiful crisp day today. Blue sky, white puffy clouds.

And if you’re in the North Country, drop by Vulgar Display of Poutine in Island Pond, VT (4-10 pm Thursday and Friday, 2-10 pm Saturday and Sunday). All they serve is poutine, but it’s the best you’ll find.

Hey, if we’re going to continue with the grand renaming of everything, I might as well plump for my own candidate.

This date has long been the time when the New England autumnal colors start to peak, up here at the northern end of their range.  A dedicated leaf-peeper can start up here and follow the colors southward to finish up in Connecticut, by which time we up here are looking at bare trees and starting to fret about the first snowfall.

Vaudeville Again!

It;s VaudevilleI’ll be doing my vaudeville thing at Newport, NH a week from Saturday, at 7:00 pm.   My turn is a recreation of a vaudeville magic act as might have been seen back in 1921, using the same patter, the same tricks, done by the same methods, as they were a century ago.  The place is the Newport Opera House.  So come on, see the show, and applaud wildly!

$10 in advance, $15 at the door.
