Murphy!

In an attempt to make this most of a blog I have also decided to add a page for my friend Murphy. He will undoubtably show up in pictures so I figured I would introduce him. He is a baby moose who was purchased with his best friend Mr. Dubois in Quebec City in April 2011. Since becoming part of my life Murphy has traveled everywhere with me.

Here are the places he has been so far:

  1. Quebec City
  2. Burlington, VT
  3. Boston, MA
  4. Wolfeboro, NH
  5. Canton, NY (St. Lawrence University)
  6. Erie Canal- NY State
  7. Finger Lakes, NY
  8. Hershey, PA
  9. Badlands, SD
  10. Wall Drug, SD
  11. Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse Memorial
  12. Devil’s Tower, WY
  13. Denver, CO
  14. Vail, CO
  15. Frisco, TX
  16. Milwaukee, WI
  17. Belize

  1. Murphy,
    Please tell Kristen the following.
    1. I loved her postcard, not least of which because it’s factual evidence she remembers me.
    2. I wish terribly she were still sitting in one of my UVM classes looking smug and exasperated.
    3. I am delighted she continues to be BOLD BRASH AND COURAGEOUS; her highschool teacher was spot on.
    4. Her gig with the Peace Corps makes me believe that good things can happen to good people. I am grateful for this moment of optimism.
    5. I am so proud of her for “making the familiar strange and the strange familiar.”
    6. I miss her.
    Best wishes in Jamaica and beyond,
    Allison
    P.S. Tell Kristen she doesn’t have to call me Professor Kingsley anymore.

    1. Hi!
      This made me so happy! I am glad you got my post card. The reliability of the postal service is still in question. Of course I remember you! How could I ever forget the woman who tortured me for two semesters?! Just kidding! It looks like I am going to have access to the internet for work, so it will be very easy to stay in touch! I hope you are doing well!
      Kristen
