     vignettes:  jobs -  Yankee Magazine - after 'retiring' from my career as a folk singer i had various means of gainful employment during my NH stay.  first,  as a 'maintainance specialist'  at Yankee Magazine,   y  a New England

 institution based in  Dublin NH, where i lived for a time
at the home of its founder's widow, Beatrice Sagendorph.

  Bea lived in the big house.  her dead husband Rob was banished to his 'studio'  :)  s

st   it was a nice location.  here are several pics from the hilltop up the road.

'summer residence' was just up the road, too.-  see NH pg 2 )   here's a picture of our front yard taken years later,  where a tornado destroyed a 30 ft

 Ponderosa pine tree
i was at home with the cat when it came by.  snapped that tree like a toothpick, something like the rest of my NH dream.  only

the stump remains today

tp  my accomodations weren't alway quite so luxurious.  here's the 'Gulch',

where i camped with my friend, Fred Kramer in 1979

nicely now - gentrified.  at the time it looked more like it's proprietor does today.  here's Fred.  f
