Another Exciting Weekend in Vermont

More excitement, torn from the pages of the Woodstock Early Bird!

In an awareness-raisng example of Vermont’s long political tradition, strong “back and forth” broke out today as A Dozen Turn Out for “Occupy Woodstock”.

And late last week, thousands were left without power because some skwerl was monkeying around: Squirrel Shock Causes Power Outage”.

I like Woodstock and whenever I head there for a visit I make sure to go through Proctorsville and Cavendish so I can stop by Singleton’s General Store on the way, just in case.

  1. You can never have too much whiskey, guns and ammo!!

  2. “Whiskey”, with an “e”. Very interesting.

    Regarding spelling, Scots hold back the E; Yanks, Irish, and other Brits insert the E.

  4. If I were a Canadian, I’d be offended…

  5. Paul Arnold

    @Brahyshaw — You are absolutely correct.

  6. For the “just in case”…indeed, one must always be prepared in such things. 🙂

  7. I think whiskey drinkers would be more likely to get in a snit if the “e” was left out than a whisky drinker if the “e” were added. When I worked in a liquor store under an overpass, a group of alcoholics who lived by the railroad tracks once gave us a hard time about a missing “e”. It was easier to just let the bums mock us than to explain.

    Singleton’s also carries stuff like ostrich meat. Just in case.

    “Singleton’s also carries stuff like ostrich meat. Just in case.”

    At least the place hasn’t been gentrified. No guns or knives allowed inside, and ostrich meat in the poultry case. I love it.

    Quill, I’ll give you 50 bucks to walk up to English Jonny and say that. I tried it once. Never again.

    • Snit may have been the wrong word. I notice a lot more bourbon in plastic bottles than scotch, leading me to believe whiskey drinkers are at least more prone to throwing stuff.

      I imagine English Jonny can work up a real fine snit.
