have dyepots will travel

through Vermont I traveled this morning
on long windy roads
and farmlands
past the ravage of Irene's wrath.
new bridges reuniting towns
so torn apart
to arrive at a fiber oasis
in Proctorsville VT
with a few more than six loose ladies
and a few tricks from my wizard's wand
I helped them conjure some
great naturally dyed colors 
the results were stunning
a bright backdrop to what has been a very
difficult time in their region
it was fun, this is a good place to stop
Six Loose Ladies is open.
Vermont is going to be okay.
come visit.
on my descent into town I stopped to pay a hello to the lovely ladies
in waiting (heifers) at Windyhurst Farm
the farm owners happened to stop by, who I'm pretty darned fond of 
and Roger asked
"haven't you ever seen a cow before?"
with a big smile from him

and I said "yes, but none so pretty as these"
what a fine day for many good ladies

  3. So sweet of you to drive down there and put some beautiful color in their day. So picturesque minus the ravages of Irene. Wow I love the speedy bridge construction. Cows, next to sheep, have always been a favorite of mine.
