Porch rocker and preparing for the "Cheese Fest"

After all the excitement of Bernard passing his plating test on Wednesday it was serious "nose to the grindstone" time. The porch rocker with a drop-on close caned seat has taken a very long time, but at last it is finished.

So now we pack the truck ready for the Cheese Festival! We've never been to this event before, so are really looking forward to it.

Hi Jan, very pleased to hear that you enjoy the blog! I'm afraid I don't know where the photo was taken, but just thought it was lovely - a warm late Summer evening perhaps.....?
