Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction.

We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream.

It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them to do the same.

Today is Paul Bunyan Day – the folk hero who carved the Grand Canyon with his ax, pushed up mountains while wrestling with his blue ox, Babe, and formed the Mississippi River when his canteen sprang a leak.

Paul Bunyan statues and legends can be found across America, but we know that he really was from Bangor, Maine.

  • One legend says that Paul Bunyan was 63 ax handles tall, while Babe was 42 ax handles tall
  • Paul’s frying pan covered one acre
  • It took a crow one day to fly from the tip of one of Babes horns to the other
  • Paul carved out the Great Lakes so that Babe could have watering holes for drinking water
  • One winter, all the snowflakes were blue and this changed the color of Babe permanently to blue

This thirty-one foot high statue of Paul can be found in Bangor, Maine.

A bunch of Matchbox, Dinky and die cast metal cars and trucks. Not collectible, but all well loved and enjoyed by my brother and then my son. This is just a tiny sampling of their treasures. Only valuable for sentimental reasons.
