A small cadre of volunteers and I braved the trek to Howard County (Merryweather Post Pavilion) to participate in the Wine in the Woods Festival. Wow, what a busy busy weekend. And getting out of the area was a pain in the...bottle...because Lady Antebellem was playing a concert a few hours after the winos cleared out. Needless to say, it was a complete and utter cluster.
Anyway, I'm counting my blessings today as I sit here on my couch, looking out over my garden and beyond to the wheat field. Hoppy, my yorkie, is panting as usual because she is hot blooded and just a bit fat. I know, I stink as a mama, she shouldn't be fat. But back to the subject at hand...I'm so happy to be a country mouse.
Yes, I grew up in the suburbs and yes, I went to school in Columbus, OH and yes, I lived in cities over the years...but there ain't nothing like the Shore and God's country and farmers in tractors and people who use less-than-good English.
So, Howard County: I thank you for a good event, I was able to make some money for the winery and I was able to get more than a few Weight Watchers activity points, but THANK GOD for Whaleyville MD.
