  1. I had a neighbor in Danbury, Conn., who was from Vermont. She used to say with pride, "They don't WANT to pave the roads in Vermont." That said it all. She was proud of her home state, but she had a wonderful sense of humor about the whole thing--like this puppet.

  9. Vermont is a place I always see in movies and read about in books. Of all my travels, I've never made it to the north east states. I love the pictures you post.

  10. Vermont seems like another world to me. Apparently it is. I've got to get out there at least to see the unpaved roads and a radical political puppet show. I cannot imagine.

  15. Well, I live down in Connecticut right now, but I grew up in Massachusetts, just across the Vermont line.

    I have a lot of friends in Vermont who are currently secessionists, and other friends who are big Bread and Puppets fans, so it is great to see this.

  16. Very interesting picture. I'm sure there are many over in VT that want a second republic. Heck, I'm sure there's some that'd want that over here in NH.
