There are some pretty big names in this industry from MA. I can tell you, we have a suppier of quality tanning supplies from here along with a recent winner of the Pioneer Award and the Smithsonian just had much of it's displays "upgraded" by someone originally from here. I'll leave it up to them to volunteer their names. I also live in the western part of the state. Except for having my name on this post I'm not even on the same page as these guys. Much of what I know is because of them. You can learn from these guys too by attending a CAT show. Next one coming up is in June.


Also Ma.

My formative years were spent there 10 miles south of the New Hampshire line. Might explain my so called liberal views. LOL


What New Hampshire town

Not asking you to divulge the town you were raised in. But what town in New Hampshire were you 10 miles south of. Say you were 10 miles south of Gaffrey, Then you would have grown up in Winchendon, Ma. Like my wife.

Winchendon,Ma.
Know it well.I live close by.Cecil should know that west of I495 he is out of the "liberal-socialist"part of The Peoples Democratic Republic. I have many clients from Winchendon-Jaffrey.


I never realized I was in the "liberal-socialist" part

I lived near Ayer and Shirley at the former Ft. Devens when my dad was stationed there in 10th Special Forces. I think Nashua, New Hampshire was due north, but could be wrong. Leominster was a little west on Rt. 2, and I believe Winchendon is farther west as well.

I lived at the former Ft. Devens mear Ayer and Shirley when my dad was stationed there in Special Forces. I believe the nearest good sized New Hampshire town was Nashua north to northeast.

My ancestors came over in 1650 from England (originally the name was Beard) and settled in the Berkshires around Blanford. Baird's Tavern run by one of them is still there and is a Bed & Breakfast now. One served in the Revolutionary War. Another one of them got booted out of the church for a while for fishing on the Sabbath. Sorry for the ramble.


Well, Well, Well

My wife Grew up in Winchendon, I met her when I was TAD at Fort Devons.I later did Recruiting duty In Gardner. Spent Many a night driving around Lake Dennison Drinking beer with My buds. Played Music at the Clark Memorial for the Saturday Night dances. Don't these computers make the world small?


Did you do any fishing back then?

Ft. Devens had a couple of underated ponds by the name of Mirror Lake and Little Hell Pond. I spent a lot of my time fishing them as it was just a walk through the woods from Salerno Circle. Good memories.I go back once in a while and fish for big bluegills in Mirror Lake that the locals consider trash fish.

I have never fished Minor, or little hell Pond. But I did A lot of fishing In the Winchendon area. A town called Ahsburnham. I use to fish In the reservoir there was some fantastic bass fishing. If you did not mind rowing a boat. Sunset lake was a favorite for Horn Pout fishing. Horn Pout. LOL remember those. Mass is the only place I ever herd of them. Not very big. But I loved to eat them. I also spent many a day fishing at Buzzards Bay. I recall days when we could catch a cooler full of flounder. And Fishing off the pier at Glouster. Back in those days the cannery dumped the fish guts into the bay. You could catch a 35 gallon trash can full of Pollock in about an hour. Quabin reservoir was another great fishing spot. And My favorite pastime was to go to the cape, and dive for lobster. The lobster fisherman did not like it much, Because they figured Scuba divers would raid their traps. But nothing beat Piling up rocks on the beach, Building a fire over them until they got hot. Then pull the logs off, cover the rocks with kelp. and put s few lobsters, and some onion sacks filled with clams on it then cover with a tarp. Steamers, Lobster, And beer. an a hot summer's eve. That was the life when you are 20 years old, foot loose, and fancy free. My lovely wife wet with sea water glistening in the moonlight. as we talk of what we are. And what we will someday become. Been 40 years ago. and the mummeries as sweet as the experience. If only we could turn back the hands of time!

Remember Emmit Fritz? We used to call the woods around Lake Dennison "radio city" because there so many car radio antennas sticking up out there.

I live in Pelham MA, where the men are men & the sheep are scared.
Our town motto: If I divorce my wife is she still my sister ?
They actually invented the tooth brush here in Pelham MA..
If it was invented anywhere else they would have called it a TEETHBRUSH!
Were surrounded by earthy crunchies here in western mass.
No one wants to hurt furry litle animals here in town.
Boy does my family stick out like a sore thumb ,lol
