July 16th, 2009

It was a long day today.  We started it in Asheville in the lap of luxury at the Sheratin hotel.  We couldn’t really sleep in because of needing to get an early start to get to Silva where Ben’s exhibit was on display at Western Carolina.  After a quick (but sumptuous) breakfast we picked him up and headed for Silva.

To see what we saw, check out Ben Green Designs.   Needless to say, we were impressed and amazed at his abilities with wood.  By noon we were back on the road for home, arriving around 4:00.  I immediately took the van down to the DMV to get the registration straightened out and buy Chris dill seed for the next round of canning.  Back home I took care of chores, then got a call from J.Ed Hall about the cattle delivery planned for tomorrow morning.   As we talked, I asked him if we might come this evening, and he said sure.  So, I gathered Dewey and Chris and we went out to the barn for a round-up and ear-tagging, etc.  Kat showed up fortuitously, and between us we had all the cattle in the trailer by about 8:00PM, and I set off for Berea.  What more needs to be said?  I got there around 9:30pm, unloaded them, helped J.Ed strengthen his pen a little, and left around 10:15, arriving back home at 11:30.  Ate leftovers and went to bed.  Long day.
