Only in New Hampshire

I love quirky places.  I remember as a child visiting Rockaway Beach before nearby Branson, MO became the vacation mecca is now is.  Other favorite vacation places include Weeki Wachee Springs in FL (home of living mermaids) and Talkeetna, AK (a small drinking town with a climbing problem.)  

This quirkiness is one of the reasons why I absolutely love living in New Hampshire.  From yesterdays news headlines:  "Bear Removed from Tree in Downtown Rochester."  It took about 14 hours of efforts by local police and fish and game officials to get the 200 pound bear out of the tree.  Residents were asked to avoid downtown during this time.  

Makes the deer that were munching on my garden last night look downright tame.
