I think if I had read James Herriot's All Creatures Great and Small 20 years ago I would have become a country vet.
The Bethune Chicken Strut is on again this year. (Last year it was off. You can read our past experiences with the Chicken Strut in the April 2006 archives-yes, I'm too lazy this morning to create the link.) Rodeo, carnival, parade, tractor pull, and the Colgate Country Showdown.
We will miss the locals' night at the carnival (we'll be seeing the Pope!), but should be home for the rest. Number one son is pursuing an entry into the Colgate Country Showdown.
Back to work!
Oremus pro invicem!
