You can't imagine how beautiful it is, and cool. Windows are open, breeze in trees. Took Sam for a walk this am in the squirrel chasing woods and then to the bakery and the Farmer's Market. Wow, what a difference from our FM in Denton...which is lovely but soooo hot.
Portland FM sells lettuce, carrots, turnips, delphiniums, sunflowers...all under tall, tall trees, with musicians playing nearby and dogs everywhere. If you have THE BIGGEST DOG there, or your friend does, you get lots of comments. With my dogs, we get, "oh, they're so cuuuuute!," especially given that there are two of them. Songbird gets, "Wow, THAT's a big one!" Extreme dogs, that's what we have.
Meeting with other New England friends later on in the visit. SB is writing sermon now and later we go to the Bean Supper! Can't wait.
