Governor Dudley

The governor appointed a new Senator (center) since the current one wants to leave for a Cabinet job nobody can quite define. Former Gov. Joseph Dudley (1686-1687, 1702-1716) looked on. Fantastic wig.

According to wikipedia, colonists so disliked Gov. Dudley a treatise was published in London in 1708 entitled "The Deplorable State of New England by reason of a Covetous and Treacherous Governor and Pusillanimous Counsellors."

dude, it looks like you're having a great time up there from the parties to the skiing to shooting. I saw this photo come across APAD and couldn't stop laughing because of the title and the dude with the wig.

And no, that kid was not my brother. haha, and yes, apple mountain is ridiculous. I was talking to some kids who call it Apple Bump...even that is being generous.
