You know that thing where life sort of conspires against you and you decide you Simply Must Leave For A Bit. There’s really not any choice about it, you just need to Flee. Yeah, well, that’s been going on. So last weekend, I fled. I went down to the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival with a friend for a bit of relaxation and distraction (plus a bit of scheming…because really you need some scheming in any good weekend).
As often happens at these things, there were critters. Critters are quite good at providing distractions. There were live silk worms (which I’ve never seen before and which were handled by a small child with much more equanimity than I could have mustered).
