For years visitors asked why I have a 16-foot
granite monument on my front lawn. They want to know why the five foot
steel monkey clinging to the top is blowing a five foot chrome bugle.
You will see this monument
on Route 131 5.4 miles from Route One in Thomaston.
One of St. George's most photographed tourist attractions, it is
something most people feel they have to see when visiting our part of Maine.
Janice Lang, the famous Canadian photographer,
took this picture of my monument at sunrise.
Wouldn't you think that a professional would have taken the picture
from another angle or at another time of day so you wouldn't have the sun
in your eyes? When you visit us I hope you'll take your picture in
