Olde Time Native Yankees


Rather than hijack MrsP's raspberry thread, I'll put this here.

Talking to (Ernie) reminds me of the Airport's Ralph Merwin Horn—and evokes the New Hampshire I remember as a kid.

Just as I videotaped Ralph Horn (just in time, too), someone should sit Ernie down for his own recollections of 'Boro times.




There's a film maker in Vermont that has captured his neighbors on film with barely enough time to spare. John O'Brien's "Vermont in a Box - The Tunbridge Trilogy" stars some delightful old folks and if you are a fan of genuine New England Natives, this is a must see.

Oh yes, it's neat the little differences between old time vermonters, Nh-ers and Mainers . . .

Fritz Wetherbee recorded a tape many years ago called "How to speak NH like a Native". Over the past couple years, he reprised that recording as a video tutorial and aired it at least twice on Channel 9 Chronicle. He explains the differences between the New England states and says that NH is a good mix of them all.
