Mom’s gone

So we had a very nice visit with my mom this week. She’s a very low-key guest, always happy to read a book or do a crossword puzzle if no exciting touristy stuff is in the offing. We found a great walking trail in Plainfield, a well-maintained railroad bed from the village’s industrial days. I finally went to the Fairbanks Museum after ten years of living in Vermont. The myriad stuffed birds were not terribly impressive, but they had a nice little exhibit on Vermont inventors and a great collection of poorly-labeled trinkets, weapons, and clothing from around the world. I have an urge to jettison my consonants, steal the museum’s outrigger and South Seas reed armor, and attempt to colonize islands in Lake Champlain.
