Ill also talk about old houses and why we seem to love them, despite the bats in the attic and wiring that looks as if it was installed by Ben Franklin, says Fred.

    Fred Marple - also known as humorist Ken Sheldon - has appeared on New Hampshire Chronicle, on the radio, in the pages of Yankee Magazine and New Hampshire Magazine, and on stage all over New England. He is the author of Welcome to Frost Heaves, a collection of tales from the most under-appreciated town in New England.
