Dogs at the market

Posted in North Carolina, Wanderings by erinbrethauer on September 22, 2009

I think there were as many dogs at the farmer’s market last Saturday as there were people.   The St. Bernard was as big as a pony and the biggest crowd pleaser.  You could probably throw a saddle on that thing and ride it around town.

Conquering the tree

This is Judson.  He’s 4 and  loves to climb.  His parents run Cane Creek farm where I’m working on a little project.  In the ten minutes that I hung out with Judson while he climbed/tackled this tree, I watched him fall three times.  The first time he fell, there were a few seconds where we both paused so he could figure out how to react.  He quickly snapped out of it and said ‘that was fun!’ before climbing back on the tree…to fall off a minute later.  He’s a rough and tumble sort of guy.  Later Judson asked his dad if he could climb on the roof.  Doesn’t hurt to ask, right?

Farming is a balancing act
