. . . was the sound at Afton Station today when a group of four great guys from the Netherlands arrived, and one of them was wearing wooden shoes! That's a first for us. I was given a pair of wooden shoes by Dries Bessels when he visited, but this is the first Dutch visitor who said he wears them all the time. (The Dutch word for wooden shoes is "klomp" or, more properly, "sabot"). Very interesting.
This is the first of what might be several days of very short or even nonexistent blog posts. Today I got home late and have a lot to do because tomorrow my daughter Sarah is coming for a 5-day visit. That always means I'll be having too much fun to promise a daily blog. I'll try, but we shall see.
