I was reading my new issue of Life in the Finger Lakes (Summer 2003) and, much to my surprise, I saw a picture of my son getting an autograph from a member of the Buffalo Bills during training camp in 2002. He certainly was excited to see his picture in the magazine and took the copy to school to show his friends and teachers.
I wanted to point out that the word “whittletree” used in the article about the Erie Canal was misspelled. In fact, it can be referred to as a whiffletree or a whippletree, which is the pivoted swinging bar to which the traces of a harness are fastened and by which a vehicle or implement is drawn.
Love your magazine and am subscribing.
