July 29, 2018 had Teagan’s Ride for United Cerebral Palsy Poker Run where the ride starts at Covered Bridge Farm Table in Campton, NH to Broken Spoke on the Laconia / Meredith NH Line. THE DAY IS NOT OVER AND COME ON OVER TO THE BROKEN SPOKE! Here are pictures of the event! They have T Shirts Too!
I have pictures and a video covering the Make a Wish Event in Meredith in the park near Lago July 21, 2018. Someone dressed as Elsa and sang Let it Go even. Make a Wish lets a child with a life threatening medical condition make a wish that will be granted! There were Disney Prizes! This event! brings happiness. There was rafting and dancing in the event! A lot of places sponsored to Make a Wish. I hope to sponsor with them One Day. There will be more of these events!

The weather is getting warmer and some of the ice is starting to melt in Lake Winnipesaukee. Ice Out is soon. When ice all over is broken up in Lake Winnipesaukee, that is when Ice Out is declared and then the MS Mount Washington can make it to all its ports around the lake! Then boating season follows soon after! 2016 was our earliest one ever, in where it happened around St Patricks Day time! Last year Ice Out was declared Mid April! Here it’s late April and no Ice Out yet. The is is the latest Ice Out in years! They have been doing Ice Out since the 1800s. When Ice Out is declared, it makes many NH newspapers! We did have some late snow storms and Winter weather last week and a cold winter, but the weather has been starting to get warmer. Soon you will also see the MS Mount Washington set sail (A story will be on that when it’s first sail happens). It is beautiful to see the MS Mount Washington set sail across the lake! It is a great feeling too of realizing summer is about here too!
This link gives a history of the past Ice Outs : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Winnipesaukee_Ice-Out.
There are some establishments that do an Ice Out contest and if your prediction is right they give you a gift card!
Here are pictures of the Lake as of this weekend and much of the ice has broken! Last week there was still a lot of ice!
Here is a CONTEST: Name your Ice Out Prediction here in this story!. Mine is around May 1! I hope I am right! On average most Ice Outs occurred in the 2nd half of April. I love hearing people’s Ice Out Predictions! I wonder how many other lakes do a similar thing : declare Ice is gone and if any of you know any other lake that does that try to list that here.

I watched her play at Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, NH June 3, 2017 and that was an amazing experience! It brought in quite a crowd! I had waited all Winter and Spring for her performance at the Bank of NH Pavilion. Her country music songs are amazing and catchy!!!! She had a tour earlier this year, and among her tours was in Knoxville TN and Lexington KY this past late Winter. Here is a list of her tours for this year: https://www.mirandalambert.com/tour/ . Go Miranda Lambert!!!! Make us proud with your awesome talents! How many people have taken selfies with her?
Here are pictures of my experience of seeing Miranda Lambert play on stage! My favorite songs are Something Bad (a duet with Carrie Underwood), Mama’s Broken Heart, Gun Powder and Lead, Kerosene. I Love watching my friends (Eric Grant, April Cushman and Jodie Cunningham) who do country music gigs and bands play her songs at their gigs as well! You can find those bands playing those songs at the Whiskey Barrel in Laconia NH as well as ManchVegas Club in Manchester and Derryfield in Manchester NH.
Name your favorite Miranda Lambert song in the comments thread below, and if you have seen any of her tours name which one you saw.

Ted Williams was a Major League Baseball player in Fenway Games and am american hero. You did really great in the games you played! http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/bos/history/bos_history_williams.jsp
Here is a list of Fenway’s events (in addition to Red Sox Games, they even have concerts here): https://www.mlb.com/redsox/ballpark
I feel many restaurants, pubs and shops benefit from being near Fenway as Fenway will generate traffic to their businesses. Target nearby even has a merchandise assortment catering to Fenway gear! I cannot shake how Tilted Kilt didnt make it near Fenway! It should have done well.
There are seats called the Green Monster Fenway. It is the High Left Field! I admit it’s expensive but it’s worth it as it has a great view. They have great dinner arrangements and seating! http://boston.redsox.mlb.com/bos/ballpark/fenway-park-events/event-venues/green-monster/
I really love the Green Monster Mascot. I had a selfie with him taken in 2012 here in Laconia. His name is Wally and he debuted in 1997 and became more popular in 2009. Many find him to be cute! Here is a description of him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wally_the_Green_Monster
In the comment thread area below name your memories and favorite games you have gone to see here! I love hearing great stories.
Pictures Below were me there as a Kid. I always loved going with my parents and brother back in the day! I would love to go back!!!
