Well, it is over now, finished and done with. I ride no more tormented, and both of us are free.

They made indifferent sentinels, for in many places their ranks had been broken by the rhubarb plant, and they lay with crumpled heads and listless stems, making a pathway for the rabbits. I left the drive and went onto the terrace, for the nettles were no barrier to me, a dreamer. Well, it is over now, finished and done with.

Rebecca and Eliezer at the Well is an oil painting by Italian artist Carlo Maratta, located in the Indianapolis Museum of Art, which is in Indianapolis, Indiana. It shows the story of Abraham's servant Eliezer giving Rebecca jewels to seal her betrothal to Isaac, after she had demonstrated the kindness foreseen by Abraham in offering water to Eliezer's camels (Gen. 24:11-20).

Reviews:
  • Vizuru
A lot of thought and humor went into this book and I am loving every page.
  • Burking
I enjoyed every word in this book. It is interesting, fast reading and FUN to read.I highly recommend it to not only people from New Hampshire but New England in general. For those of you living outside of the New England area, it is a must read so you can understand the rest of us!
  • Amerikan_Volga
I'm going to buy several more copies. It really made me laugh--so true!!
  • Aiata
I purchased the book as "NEW" when I got it it had a nice note to someone written in it. Very dissapointing
  • Akirg
Great condition
  • Levaq
Buy this book if you live in New England and want to try to explain what our slang and lifestyle is all about. Not everyone gets this humor.

New Hampshire humorist and storyteller Rule's latest (after Live Free and Eat Pie!) explicates the local vernacular for outlanders and natives alike, from A to Z, well, Y, and rounds it off with a gazetteer, an "uncomprehensive list" of place names and pronunciations, i.e., "Wilton: The trouble with Wilton, they say, is you have to keep watering it."

Rule, who performs all over the state, collects stories everywhere she goes. Some are familiar, many not, but Rule makes even the oldest saws fresh.

A couple of examples:

"Deah
1. A term of affection
Some of us never use `deah' as a term of affection. For many Yankees, the closest we get to a term of affection is `you,' as in `How are you?' or `What are you up to?' or `Haven't seen you around lately.' The ones who do say deah say it so often, they make up for the rest of us.
2. An antlered animal prized by hunters
`Deah, did you get your deah this yeah?'
`None of us got our deah this yeah, deah. Except Ma.'
`What'd she get it with?'
`The Buick.' "

Like the best Yankee humor, Rule's is dry and crisp and will resonate with natives and those from away, as well.
I am not from New Hampshire, but am married to someone who is. Rebecca Rule knows how to tell a story, particularly one with dry New Hampshire humor. I was enjoying this "glossary" with accompanying stories, but then began reading some entries aloud to my wife who began to split a gut with laughter. So, that's how I finished the book, reading aloud and laughing hysterically while learning some of the subtleties of New Hampshire speak.

The "gazetteer" in back covers many NH place names with some hilarious tidbits about them, some very short and some longer. I only wish the book had a map to accompany the stories.
