Check out this story from my local newspaper. It seems that one of “Charlie’s Girls”, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme will be moving to my town shortly. Fromme was just released from federal prison after serving an extended sentence for pointing a gun at then-president Gerald Ford in 1975.
I don’t have a clue why Fromme, now 60, would want to move to this area. As far as I can determine, she has no ties here. The area is relatively conservative and the winters can be a tad “harsh”. Our winter minimum temps are -20 to -25 F with seasonal snow totals of over 100 inches (the record being close to 200). If you don’t like snow and have no interest in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, kayaking, and the like, I don’t think this would be a great fit. Don’t get me wrong, I love it here, but I realize that it’s not for everyone.
Then again, maybe she’s come from the regional delicacies of tomato pie, chicken riggies, and half moon cookies.
