Fancy News - Stick Season

Stick Season is upon the land, and with it, the seasonal appearance of Stick Stalkers - first cousins to the Leaf Peepers who have only just left, leaving in their wake a chaos that defies description, and taking with them numerous photographs, drawings, water colors, and even samples, some pressed between sheets of waxed paper and lost in the back of Vista Cruisers, some not.

Ahh, Stick Season in Springfield, Vermont, when the Stick Stalkers come to stop and stare at sticks in all their glory, in that short window of time that is theirs - after the giddiness and frivolity of the great mayhem of the Leafy Time, between then and before the advent of the snows of Winter - Stick Season.
