A Showy Adorning




Skiers' etiquette states that before the next time you wear
your ski jacket, you must snip your most recent lift 
ticket wickets.  That will prevent people from judging you by 
where you last put on your planks .  Unless of course they're 
from somewhere like Chamonix, or Snowbird, or Stratton. 

Hey, is that an ergonomical handle on that ski pole?

  1. Thank you for that piece of etiquette advice, Mis Manners. But Wachusett is a bit like Chamonix, isn't it?

    1. Never been, although it looks charming.
      To neither Chamonix or Wachusett...

      When I was very young, I'd save all of my lift tickets in a shoebox, and then calculate how much money we spent that winter. In the early seventies at Stratton, adult tickets were $11.00, and kids were $8.00. How did we ever manage?

  2. Ah Baydog, I believe that's the Ames Poly Snow Shovel and Pusher, with the Versa-Grip handle that accommodates a variety of gripping positions and allows you to use the handle with heavily-padded gloves or mittens.

    There's an interesting story of how the old 1857 Ames Shovel Works building, in Easton, Massachusetts was recently saved from the wrecking ball and converted into housing units by a grass roots effort of the citizens of Easton.

    1. The Ames Shovel Works building languished in relative obscurity for years and would probably not be there today had it not been recently saved from the wrecking ball and converted into housing units by a grass roots effort of the citizens of Easton, and then brought to the world's attention by a passionate Boston mailman.
