An interview

It was a surprise this afternoon when a man from the newspaper knocked on our door.  He said he heard that we travel and he heard of our son who is home-schooled and is going to show a horse at the fair.  He asked to take a picture of him with the horse later this week, and to interview him for an article in the paper right now!  Knock me over with a feather.

I sat nearby for a few minutes then went into the trailer.  I peeped through the window and could see them laugh and smile and talk at the picnic table.  Our son talked more after I left them alone so I'm glad I decided to come in.  I imagine the newspaperman got enough talking done to write whatever blurb he's going to put with the photo.  We shook hands and he left.

That is so cool Lil! You will have to send us a link to the article or somethin' when it's published. I bet your son impressed them greatly; he's a sharp one!

How cool! I hope he does a great job showing the horse. That sounds like fun.

The town is itty bitty and so is the newspaper. Only the first page is online and he's on the fourth page. I will scan it and put it here maybe.

I hope he does well with the horse too. I don't know if I can watch, but I want to take photos so I better watch!
