On the UNE (University of New England) campus on Stevens Avenue this "Made Moose" looks skyward into a rainy morning. As I've written before, I spent a lot of time, in my youth, on this campus, when it was Westbrook College, and in the cemetery nearby. I know it would be hard to believe, but back then a little mischief and a bit of trouble often found their way to me and the boys. You've heard of miniature golf; I'm sure. Really, I thought 'cemetery golf' had a real chance to make it. Funny. The superintendent of the cemetery thought otherwise. The Art Gallery building now sits upon land that use to be the field hockey field. I stopped by often, on my way home from Lincoln Junior, to watch the games. I didn't quite understand the rules, but those gals running around in kilts were to die for, even back then. Ah... I could dream.
