Why I love New Hampshire and could never leave

It's winter in New Hampshire

And the gentle breezes blow,

70 miles per hour

at 52 below! Oh how I love New Hampshire

When the snow's up to your butt.

You take a breath of Winter air

And your nose it freezes shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful,

So I guess I'll hang around.

For I could never leave NH

'Cause I'm frozen to the ground !!!

No Vermonters In Heaven    Posted 02-19-2003 at 16:22:46       [Reply]  [Send Email]

I dreamed that I went to the city of Gold,
To Heaven, resplendant and fair,
And after I entered that beautiful fold,
By one in authority then I was told,
That not a Vermonter was there.

"Impossible, Sir, for from my own town,
Many sought this delectable place,
And each must be here with a harp or a crown,
And a conquerors palm, and a clean linen gown,
Received through merited grace."

The Angel Replied: "All Vermonters come here
When first they depart from the Earth,
But after a day, or a month, or a year,
They restless and lonesome and homesick appear,
And sigh for the land of their birth."

"They tell of ravines, wild secluded and deep,
And flower-decked landscapes serene,
Of towering mountains, imposing and steep,
A-down which the torrents exultingly leap,
Through forests perennially green."

"They tell of the many and beautiful hills,
Their forests majestic appear,
They tell of its' rivers, its' lakes, streams and rills,
Where nature, the purest of water distills,
And they soon get dissatisfied here."

"We give them the best The Kingdom provides,
They have everything here that they want,
But not a Vermonter in Heaven abides,
A very brief period here he resides,
Then hikes his way back to Vermont."


Salmoneye...No idea who wrote that by the way...

Nice sentiment.
Born and raised in New England (Massachusetts), now residing in New Hampshire. I've been to other places in this country, but thank you very much I prefer to live and die right here.

-25 here, but not 52 below- whew. I'll stay in Michigan- plenty of clean water & clean air in north MI.
