Al ~ this is a really great family oriented event.  There is something for all ages.

Juli ~  The day could not have been any better.  It was warm and clear and during the evening it has cooled off.

George ~  I hope to get over to the Hudson Old Home Days... We have a friend coming in from out of town tomorrow, so we will have to play it by ear.

William ~  Believe it or not, I have not had the opportunity to tour this home.  This is going to go to the top of my to do list.

Ed ~  A great event and one that is well attended.  I hope my schedule will permit me to go.

I loved visiting NH many years ago.  I remember the Flume and The Old Man of the Mountain, although I understand the Old Man has since collapsed.  I would love to take another trip up there in the Fall.

Janna - there a so many community festivals that it is difficult to get to all of them.

Shirley ~  I hope you able to visit NH in the fall.  It is definately my favorite time of year.  The old man did take a fall and they are talking about a "rebuilt" old man!  The flume is still awesome as are the white mountains.

Jane ~  It is a lot of fun and I wonder what kinds of treasures were hidden in that haystack.

Love the house. I always find it kind of funny when the historical notes for these older homes say that "Mr. ____ built it for his wife." Did they get a divorce and him building the house for his wife was part of the divorce settlement? That couldn't be right, because then it would say "ex wife."

Jim -- Good point.. ..LOL.  I wonder if they build the house to Keep the "wife" so they wouldn't have an ex~
