An English In Kentucky


















September 9th 2010    Tim Candler

    I will probably spend the remainder of my days tidying the barn.   Excellent entertainment now Wrens have at last fledged. 

    Yet the work requires a return to wearing boots after long months flopping around in the sort of footwear Episcopalians and Baptists disapprove of.  But when left to their own devices through periods of warm weather boots become habitat.  And long periods of warm weather incline the mind to forgetfulness.

   I actually reminded myself, as I uncovered the boots, that this time last year there were Wooly Bears hiding in them and the rash they gave me itched for days.   And I actually convinced myself that this year no such thing would happen.

    Perhaps next year.
