Old Man of the Mountain to be Memorialized

This was always one of my favorite places to go as a child. Jimmy and I went when we were still newlyweds (September 1999). I was still working as an actuary, The Sandwiches had just played their last show. It was a long time ago. Unfortunately it was so rainy and cloudy that day we could barely see the old man and he didn’t show up on any of the pictures. But here’s a blurry picture of us I scanned in.

It crumbled off the mountain on May 3, 2003. I was very happy to read today that a memorial is being built. You can read all about it at National Geographic.
