This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Clearly, the trash was full 10 customers back... But each person after that had a newspaper/old cup/soda bottle that simple NEEDED to be thrown away at that very moment. They could not wait even 10 more minutes to find another trash can that was not already over flowing.
Perhaps there is some underground national physics experiment going on to find if you can fit 50 gallons of trash into a 30 gallon can? If so, the experiment has failed. Please move on. I am simply tired of looking at the extra 20 gallons of trash surrounding the can as I try to order my coffee.
Is it only in New England where you can be hiking along and come across an old car miles into the hike? This has happened to me multiple times in my life. How did they get there? How long will they be there?
This is a statue located on a little island where you need to walk over some train trestles to find it. I take my girls there for picnics and small hikes.
The story surrounding the statue is very bizarre... in Hannah's left hand, you will see she is holding... some scalps! Ewww....
Hannah and her family were attacked by Abenaki Indians while living in Haverhill, MA. Her and her infant daughter were kidnapped and forced to walk for days up to Penacook, NH. The Indians killed the infant by smashing against a tree.
After reaching Penacook, Hannah and another fellow killed the Indians as a means to escape, taking the scalps with them back to Haverhill. I find the scalps that are part of the statue quite disturbing... her statue in Haverhill at least has her wielding the tomahawk instead.
