We're in the NY Times sorta!

Here's a copy of the paragraph we're described in. I'm surprised Fayettteville is even mentioned in the NY Times. I love what she says about my appearance!

Market on the Square

A lot of towns have a farmers' market, but the one looping around Fayetteville's square is uncommonly engaging. On one corner is a harpist and fiddler, on another a banjo player keeping time with a young country clogger whose hip attire and hairdo would not be out of place in Lower Manhattan. The homegrown produce for sale is not typical either: sheriff leeks, mediana spinach and baby greens with edible flowers. Dan Coody, the mayor of this blue town in what is currently a red state, regularly plants himself on the sidewalk, shaking hands with supporters and amiably scrapping with opponents.

Winter Pictures for Spring

I know it's Spring, but I just got these developed (one day I'll have a digital camera). Anyway, we had a lovely snow in February and had a wonderful time sledding and enjoying the view. Satchmo choose to sled with us, we did not force him to! You can see the shawl I made him. I never thought I'd be one of those people who puts clothes on her lap dog, but Satchmo has inspired the maternal instinct in me and it was really cold those 3 days and his particular breed was created by people instead of nature so he doesn't have some of the characteristics that would keep in warm in such weather. However, though I love taking care of him, dogs are NOT the same as children and I would never call him our "baby". At least not in front of other people.
