Identity crisis

A new survey suggests New Hampshire lacks an icon of its own ever since the Old Man in the Mountain crumbled, not the greatest image in the world for The Granite State.

In the spirit of cross border cooperation, let me suggest that's far from the case.

There's always the Hampton Tolls and the miles-long back ups that ensnare you and your hard-earned cash on the way to Maine.

Then there are the charming roadside ways stations like the one pictured above where you can fuel up on booze and butts on that same journey.

And maybe we should add Mitt Romney's Winnipesaukee manse.

I'm open to suggestions.

Well, since the fireworks store in Pennsylvania couldn't provide the Times Square Bomber with powerful enough sparklers, how about the border fireworks stores in NH?

This is funny . .

When they were issuing the state coins, my kids were collecting them. The next coin due out was to be from the "Live Cheap or Die State" when we were sitting at the breakfast table one morning and one of my kids asked what I thought would be depicted on the coin from the Granite Head State. I answered, "Probably a toll booth and a liquor store."

So when I read this blog I just had to laugh! Thanks!
