While pottering around antique stores today I saw this, Noddy and Big Ears. I loved these books as a kid but at $45 it was a bit too much to pay for a nostalgic momento.

Had to compliment the owner on his bike parked outside of Marshall's 7-11 last night. Not a fan of Harleys but I love orange. I guess he was on his way to Rolling Thunder in DC.

Sick of so much rain. I'm guessing all the hard work I put in in my veggie plot has all been washed away or the seeds have rotted, and then this morning I turned up to work soaked and muddy after wrestling to get a pissed off snapper turtle off the road. Where is our summer? This is Marshall as I passed through on my way home from work, the skies about to dump yet more rain with some thunder and lightning for added effect.

I found this little chap in the middle of the road this morning and took him to the hospital hoping he'll be OK. He had an injured back leg.

After work I attended a class on foraging for edible plants in Warrenton. Very informative and I gleaned a lot of information as well as having a munch on the mulberries growing by the stream.

I managed to get a pork leg with the skin on and roasted it, waiting anxiously and impatiently for it to be done. After 4 hours I finally managed to chow down on perfect crackling. It was delicious and the pork was moist and tasty. Kota and Rosie Lee agreed.

Prince, one of the wonderful llamas I met today at a visit to Twin Creeks near Front Royal.
