When Starbuck and I go to the stackpole pine to discuss life's problems, we never expect to be overheard. However this long eared rabbit will probably spread rumors about this conversation. He looked as if he might be trouble.

As I walked into the barn a couple of days ago, just as I have many times for the last twenty five years, something captured my attention. I looked up into the rafters near the loft where I have stored several 2x4 pine studs for the last few years. There was one there that seemed to want to be a Headland High School ram. Well the danger of being an almost hermit is that I just had to comply and make it come true for the old stud. I took the board and hand carved the 2x4 to make the walking stick/staff. The ram and letters are 23 karat gold leaf and the rest is polished with brown shoe polish. That seems to leave a soft finish on the pine. There are more of the boards, that can accommodate many more school mascots
