Image<p>Actually, the aunt looks a bit distracted. And what's the dog's name, anyhow?

TROY, N.Y. (AP) — It starts in Manhattan, then snakes north, following close to the New York-Vermont line. Through Patterson, Essex, West Chazy, Route 22 stretches 350 miles from New York's City Hall Park to Montreal's Mount Royal Park. <p>***Yep.***

That cutline is a little short. A real pro would have filled it out by noting that the dog is gesturing.

To salve my curiosity, was the first item meant as one of those snapshot in time items?

But that cutline's still not long enough -- who's the person hiding behind the garbage can, and do they also live at Hillside Colony, on that lot or another one?
