Moxie!

Some last random shots of last weekend's trip to the Far Away Island. This bottle of Moxie Nerve Food has been on the top of the bookcase forever.

A "quarterboard," an old way of naming ships now put onto houses.

New cedar shingles with old scythe handle.

A well-weathered figurehead.

So at that site, I discover that it was allegedly good for "loss of manhood" and yet I've never gotten a spam about it!

And it turns out to be from my dad's old 'hood, Jamaica Plain in Boston.

Moxie!
