While at the Pollhein Retreat, Terri and I visited the Sheep and Wool Show. Fascinating for a city girl. First time I saw an Alpaca in real life beside on one of those commercials where it would be great to have an Alpaca farm. Yeah right.
Cara is having a ball pushing her stuffed Llama (is that even spelled right) around and getting on the nerves of every New Yorker in site.
I saw so many types of yarn and wool, it would make your head spin. I'm crafty but this was over the top for me.
I'm going to stick to the antique shops - although some of these places thought that junk was worth a small fortune. I just couldn't see how an old RR sign that was mounted on a stand was worth over $700. I was just perplexed the entire day about how in the world that woman stayed in business. Really cute stuff but way over priced.
This weekend we embarked on a trip to the country in Upstate NY (Hudson, NY) to visit our best friends, Joe & Terri Pollhein. Joe is Ron and my classmate from West Point. USMA Class of 1987. We are about to go out to lunch at the local diner and I took a beautiful picture from the front porch. It is really beautiful here.
