There hasn’t been a marker post for a week now, and I blame it on Christmas! The holidays are here and family will arrive from around the country tomorrow. Like many of you I’ve been doing secret shopping. We call it bumble bee shopping here at Mikes.
“So Dad, what did you get me for Christmas”
“Bzz bzzz bzz! I’ve been a busy bee!”
She’s 23 now, but the joke from when she was 7 is still around. “Where are you going?” , “Bumble Bee!”. Secret shopping. It goes for birthdays and Anniversaries too.
Anyway, the last marker post finished up the 1600s. My next post will be a “Meanwhile Back in Europe” covering 1700-1750. I’ll try to get this up before Christmas eve. Then the markers from that time. This will take us nicely (I think) into the American Revolution and the part the sons and daughters of New Hampshire played in it.
There also may be a story about a marker that has very rarely been heard of. Proof of its existence is spotty, and the state denies it ever put it up. But if I manage to find it, I’ll have a post in time for Christmas.
As always, thanks for visiting!
