Von Trapp and Trapper Keeper Updates



Our Von Trapp update comes from yesterday's New York Times in an article titled A New Bunch of von Trapps, as Alpine as Sushi and Apple Pie. They're young, they're hip, they're the Von Trapp kids! These aren't your father's Von Trapps. I'm not sure if they really convey effortless elegance, but they did come from Maria Von Trapp's meadow, and I feel a certain obligation to report on anything associated with that.

As for the Trapper Keeper update, if the following photo montage doesn't capture the essence of austere functionality, then I don't know what austere functionality is. And I think I do. Check out this bad boy which first saw action in Attleboro circa 1985:

How much therapy do you think those kids are going to need in a few years?

Dan said...

tough to say. If they're in a relatively insulated part of Montana, they might just be able to ride it out going to church every day until they die.

Nice coverage of the TK, VTK. Cheers.

ThanKs, P. It's a fine looking TK.

next time you're down east I may be able to hook you up with a matching Trapper Portfolio.
