I'd have to ask my father-in-law; he's a native vermonter(I'm what native

vermonters call a flatlander, meaning from anywhere else besides Vermont,

presumably including Brattleboro, which might as well be part of Massachu-

setts)and he's been known to eat last night's leftover apple pie for break-

fast. With cheese. How quintessentially Yankee. I've never heard him call

anyone a Yankee, so I guess he's where the buck stops. Also in his family

"hollering for ralph" means Ralph(my father-in-law)comes running.
