In which we celebrate Bob's 50th birthday, brew beer, say "bye bye" to Jack, add baskets to Augusta, muck stalls, and hunt for mushrooms.

HAPPY FIFTIETH BIRTHDAY, BOB
It's hard to believe he's been on this planet for fifty years. Check out the tribute Camille put together with the help of Bob's many friends here: Happy Birthday, Bob!
AND CAKE, TOO!
Link and Matt came by with a vegan chocolate cake just in time to help celebrate.
OUR BUSY CAMELINA KITCHEN
Jessi and Camille roasted peppers for another fabulous edition of Friday Local on 9/11 and the next day Bob made beer from David's hops with Sefira, Jeremy, Tim and David. More on this story, here: Our Local Food Cycle
SAY BYE BYE
Jack and Adah came over for dinner after the beer brewing was over. It was their last night in town before leaving in a two week trip north. Jack shows off the beautiful henna pattern Adah painted on his hand.
BLESS THE BEASTS
Our life is rich in animals, including the Four Guineas of the Apocalypse who make their daily rounds of the Oilseed property in search of bugs and bird seed and these funny goats who hang out at Quiet Meadow Farms. For more animal pictures, go to: The Many Critters In Our World
PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER
In honor of his fifty years on the planet, Bob added three Disc Golf Baskets to Augusta. Naturally, there was some assembly required...
Two of Bob's students, Will and PJ play mad scientists for the camera in the lab at CCCC. They can't help but feel like scientists in a lab equipped with a Kinematic Viscosity Bath.
WEEKENDS AT THE BARN
We muck stalls on the weekends as an excuse to hang out with our horse buddies. Bob takes a moment to scratch Doc's neck which he thoroughly enjoys. The bay is Veni, a happy five year old who likes to chew on stuff.
Veni is happiest when he has something in his mouth. When he picks up the end of the lead rope, he looks like he is taking himself for a walk. Doc gets stink eye and laid back ears from Winston as Bob leads him down the barn aisle.
A STELLAR DAY FOR A WALK
The weather has turned absolutely gorgeous but we have had little time for walking the property. Bob decided it was high time to address this oversight, so he grabbed me and we went hunting for mushrooms.
Someday, all the man made things will disappear into the forests as they are beginning to do here in our very own North Carolina Woods. At left is a Satellite Dish and at the right, a tractor tire. For more, click on: Sauntering Naturalists
THIS MONTH'S QUOTES:
For if there is more tragic a fool than the businessman who doesn't know that he's an exponent of man's highest creative spirit - it's the artist who thinks that the businessman is his enemy." - Ayn Rand in Atlas Shrugged
"50 years: here's a time when you have to separate yourself from what other people expect of you, and do what you love. Because if you find yourself 50 years old and you aren't doing what you love, then what's the point?" - Jim Carrey
