A train was headed back north as we got out of the car.
Small bales but easy to handle.
We ended up picking Carrie up about 11 when the band got back into town.
Going out to help the guys at the brewery in awhile, they have lots to do now that they are going to all of the fall festivals and selling to the new restaurant in town.

Long day and I have had enough of them for a few days until more ripen.
I have plans to make more pizza sauce when that happens.
moon and stars watermelon that was grown in the garden at the farm museum. It was a variety from the early 1800s. We sliced one today and it was darker colored and had a richer flavor than supermarket varieties. I saved some seeds.
Started working on the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival at work today. I am getting things ready for the music groups. The web page will be evolving over the next couple of weeks as more info is added. I researched each group today and we will put links on the site so that you can hear a sample of the music.

Cloudy again but the ground was solid so I got some things done in the morning including fixing a fence, stacking wood that had fallen out of the firewood wall.

I have been using the old 1999 Sony off and on now that I have a computer that can read floppy disks.
As we were coming back from the bus stop on Monday I heard all kinds of engine noise and thought a logging truck was up behind the trees but it was the Memphis Belle heading south. By the time I got the old camera out and powered up there was just this distant shot to take but it shows a typical B17 with that big tail sticking up.
Went by my mother's and dug up a cracked drain pipe that was hooked to her drain spout and put a new one in as her cellar was getting water in it.
So we put a new one on and gave it a little pressure to check for leaks as he had to cut a plastic pipe to move things around. I waited a couple more hours before turning he system on to let the glues dry good. Using the 1999 camera today, photos are pretty good for low light.
Getting too big to fit in the box with the hen so we will have to move everyone around before too long but that will involve some fence work.
