How about adding big, Pennsylvania barn-type Mail Pouch Tobacco  rental ads?  ;D
Remember seeing 'em years ago during Greyhound bus trips, NYC to relatives in Youngstown, OH.

My picnic tables' stain does last longer than paint in NM's brutal sun.

Anybody think of getting a Wagner power painter - goes 10X faster and works great with stains.

I thought I read that that shade causes Moose Trout to stampede! Do we want stampeding Moose Trout?

Actually, the moose trout will be fascinated and will congregate at the bridge. So many, in fact, that there is a danger they will dam the brook. ::)

So the conductors will have to add the Congregation of Red Moose Trout to their spiel... I can hear Bob C. now... 'Look quickly, this is the famous Moose Brook Covered Bridge over Trout Brook.  It is the home of the Rare Red Moose Trout who are purported to congregate here in large numbers.  It is commonly debated if the Rare Red Moose Trout form a congregation or a school or a herd.  Look... Look quickly and see if you can see any of them below as we cross the bridge.  Oh... damn, the bridge covers block the view out the windows...'

It may still be up for a debate if it is a congregation, a school or a herd, but it is clear that the Red Moose Trout can be heard, but do they yodel? Then it wouldn't matter if the bridge covers block the view.

Luckily the administrator is busy, otherwise we would all be sent to the Gulag Archipelago of Sheepscot Harbor for corrupting this thread with the truth about Moose Trout! (cue the X-Files theme music)

I foresee the Whimsical, Weirdness and Foolery Department in our future, or is that the future home of the Red Moose Trout when they are not congratulating under the soon to be installed Red Moose Brook Bridge?

If they are the Dam Red Moose Trout might they be a Lodge rather than a Congregation?

Like the pesky neighbors South of Cross Road.
 
If they Yodel would they be Swiss? Swiss Dam Red Moose Trout = a Canton?
