Brick Making, 1800s Style

Since I didn’t have to work this week-end, I decided I would spend part of my time resting and another block of time organizing my house.

Instead, I ended up at a veterinary clinic worried sick (literally) about one of my dogs.  He’s been my companion since the week JFK, Jr.’s plane went down, and a lot of water has trickled, rolled, cascaded and tumbled under the bridge since then.   He’s better today and today is all we have, so back to life.

Did I absolutely have to work around the house, or was a little excursion in order?

We also learned how our forefathers made barrels and brooms.

I don’t know what this is.

At the barn, we learned how to cut slate (slate was imported – there is no slate at Slate Run) for roofs.

Admission is free at Slate Run.

There are ripe tomatoes on the vine, and you will never know how tempted I was to pocket one or two.  However, I was good.
