They won't miss a date

that's for sure

I hope Maxham didn't build the wall cabinet

Measure twice. Cut once.
I'm happy to see this place is still around.
Vermont is such a beautiful state.

Whoa! Still there!

Thank you much, Shorpy-ite Bill Ryan!

How wonderful that this (seeming) dynasty is alive and kicking!

And as a cherry on top, it is really lovely to know that the Suffolk Punch breed is alive and well and has its champions in Vermont!! It is a breed small in numbers these days, aficionados are worrying about remaining bio-diversity and the breed's future. Go Upwey, go Vermont!!

Look out the window

Snow up to the window sill! Yow!

Looking out the window

I would say they may be snowed in.

Adventure Bound

The calendar painting on the left is by Hy Hintermeister, a prolific painter of idyllic America, mainly during the 1930's and 1940's. I remember seeing many of his paintings in elementary school as well as church Sunday School rooms of the 1970's.
"Hy" was actually a pseudonym for John Henry Hintermeister and his son, Henry Hintermeister, a father/son painting team.
This one is entitled "Adventure Bound".

Snow joke -- 2 years?

Do they have two calendars on the wall because it will be 2 years before the window-sill-level snow melts in Vermont?

Suffolk Punch

The ideal draft horse!
