"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

Sheep! Wool! Dogs!

Despite rainshowers, which alternated between drizzle and downpour, I spend much of the day at the New Hampshire Sheep & Wool Festival, sponsored by the NH Wool Growers Association. I regularly attend--rain or shine--but missed it the past couple of years due to scheduling conflicts or travel or whatever. I wasn't about to skip it this year!

I met many sheep, and watched the sheep-herding demo and the sheepdog trials. I also photographed many, many beautiful Border collies.

And I purchased some beautiful hand-spun, hand-dyed 100% woollen yarn.

Damp but happy, I returned to the Lodge, and am now cuddling with my own black & white dogs.

Another blog post coming tomorrow....Really!
