I just received email from the author of this Salon article about foxhunting, asking if I had seen it. Actually, I had, shortly after it was published in March 2002. But it was fun to read again, thinking “Yeah, been there, done that, couldn’t have said it that well”.
Winding up a 3-day weekend. Nothing special, just burning some vacation time before it disappears, and enjoying the break in the weather. This summer’s heat and drought put a damper (reverse pun?) on a lot of outdoor activities. Now that it’s a little nicer, I took Arthur and the boys for hacks around the farm all 3 days. Arthur and I need to get prepped for hunt season, which might get underway real soon now that the weather has changed. Temperatures in the 90s and rock-hard ground haven’t been conducive to any kind of fitness work. (At least this year I have an excuse!).
