Life in New Hampshire

Circa 50 years ago. The linked article about Glenn Pease was written by his son, Arthur. Art is probably a 3rd or 4th cousin of mine on his mother's (and my mother's) side.
It's kind of long, but if you're interested in the old days and the old ways, you'll enjoy it. I'm proud to be a part of carrying on some of the tradition that might have just faded away without anybody to remember. That Wentworth dance on the first Friday of each month is now one that I call. And Pat McIsaac still plays piano for me there!

I was stationed at Pease AFB, New Hampshire from Jan '86 to May '88. Is there any relation to the family and the officer that the base was named for? The base closed in 90 or 91, if it was still open today I would try to go back. This Texan still prefers the South, but that had to be some of the best fishing and hunting I had ever done living in New England.

later days mate,

Thanks for sharing, I love reading stuff like that. :) Sometimes I think I was born too late. I think I would've enjoyed it.

"Hot time in the old town tonight" is one I just learned a couple years ago. It's one of my favorite ones to call....and dance, except that I never get a chance to dance. I'm too fat and out of shape anyway. I'd probably pass out from dancing two dances but I can call for hours.

We go to neighboring town the first Sat if each month to a fund raiser dance that has no electric
instruments mostly string and if you want to play you can. Old songs and about 5 or 6 sets of two sq dances . All the callers are from 60 to 80 years old .
I'm thinking when these guy and gals are gone whos gonna call them old sq dance calls .
