It's time for the harvest

We recently went to the Fall Festival at the Ella Sharp Museum.
It was great fun and beautiful day. Just think, our ancestors once used animals like these to help tame the land and provide food for their families. I think I'd have a hard time forcing this pair to do anything. Just look at those sad eyes. I'm pretty certain my family would have starved.
I would have needed one of these. The driver asked my son if he wanted to sit in the seat. Of course he did... so did I. He got to. Me, not so much.

Oh I love me some pumpkins.

There was an artisan at the festival making these beautiful brooms. I was particularly smitten with the broom that uses an old bat for the handle.

I wrote all about the festival for my column in The Jackson Citizen Patriot.

I read your column. Nice job, I love that Jack kept asking what the pumpkins were =)

Also, the sad-eyed cows... seriously, only you, sis.

The bat/broom was rather clever, indeed.

Keep up the great work, it really does make my day easier when I can step out to see what you guys are up to and catch a glimpse of what is going on. It makes me smile! Just wish I could see you more often!

How fun! And I would LOVE one of those brooms. :)
