Merry Christmas...

Recommended Posts

Great to see you John!!!! Have a Very Merry!!!

Here's to the Maplewood, June 2010!!! :cool-smileys-262:

Check This Out!!!


With much sadness, Marilyn and I are not going to Wheaton this year.

Because Wheaton left us (the marble makers), we decide to move forward with our plans.

The family will be touring Stowe, VT and Mount Washington, NH around the same time.

If Wheaton decides to fix a schedule for the future, then we will be there!

Don't get me wrong.

I was born in Philly and we have family down in Stone Harbor and Wildwood.

It was always a great time for us.

Sadly, we locked in our schedule for the Summer of 2010 before Doris sent out her email.

There are loyal friends and customers that we will miss.

Sue, please make a toast to Marilyn and I on the porch!

Man, I will miss the Cops and Ambulances!

How about the impromptu guitar solos?

There is nothing better than sharing wine (or rum) with friends!

Blessing to you and your family!

Haven't been everywhere, but NH is spectacular!

It works for me!!!! LOL

Damn John!!! Not only will you not be at Wheaton, but you'll be up here, while I'm down there!!!

My folks built their retirement home on the northern shore of Lake Champlain. I'm hoping to ski Smugglers Notch (on the backside of Mt. Mansfield from Stowe) with my Dad, sometime before Dustin goes back to school... Be sure to have a lunch or dinner at The Shed... Visit the Ben & Jerry's "Home Base" between Rte. 89 and Stowe and just for the fun of it, drive through the Mountain Pass between Stowe and Smugglers... It may be rte 108, I'm not sure...

I'm sure we can propose many toasts to your having a fine trip!!! Will Do!! :D

We're taking the kids up the Mt. Washington Cog Railway and then on the Conway Scenic Railroad.

Thinking about staying at Bretton Woods, but haven't fully decided.


I've been visiting Waterbury/Stowe since I did work at Ben & Jerry's in the early 90's.

You should try the fresh hot cider donuts at Cold Hollow Cider Mill.

There is a resort just north of the Notch that we are looking into.

We are also visiting the Quechee Gorge area.

I can't wait to eat at Simon Pearce!

Plan on stopping at Long Trail Brewery (as usual).

Looking into a visit to Porter Music Box Company and Vermont Teddy Bear.

We will visit Shelburne Museum and Frog Hollow Gallery again.

Needless to say, but we have on long check list for the trip! LOL!

Next time I'm in town, I'll try that!! My Mom always loved to go to Stowe, but she's gone, now...

Now, when I go, it's usually with my Dad, to the Ski Museum... He's a Tenth Mountain Ski Trooper and from time to time, they attend events there.

I was a dealer at the Quechee Gorge Village for many years (until the fees outweighed the profits...) But, I never made it to Simon Pearce!!! I want to do that some day, too!!!

Also, the Teddy Bear Factory... My Mom took my kids a few times, but I haven't made that one yet... I pick them up at sales whenever I see them and have quite a collection!!!

Check out Magic Hat Brewery, too!! One of the owners is also a 10th Mtn. Brat!!
