A teamster, a parade and a mule. This weekend mule Polly and I hung out with Ronald Hudson at Farmers Day in Robbins, NC. He and I were in the parade and I made some photos I thought you’d enjoy. They’re loosely in the order they happened.
Last night’s super flower blood moon was accompanied by an eclipse in some parts of the world. We didn’t get the eclipse but caught the beautiful sight from between two pairs of mules’ ears. Just on dark my wife Julia and I rode our mules Brick and Cracker to the top of the mountain behind our cabin. Here are some photos I though you might enjoy.

Howdy Monday. We had stormy weather here at headquarters last week. Our wall tent got flooded and so did our lower pasture. A shallow ditch in front of the wall tent should keep things dry up the road and the sun will do the rest. Still, we’re having some beautiful weather.
