From a life in the corporate world to a small farm. My new work colleagues eat grass or lay eggs. I've got a lot to learn about things that just seem to happen when nature becomes your new boss.

The nose knows, sometimes
Not exactly crowded for me and number one son this morning. Overcast, but you could feel it was going to get warm once the sun poked out. Bennie, nose down inhaling the doggie smells. I'm walking behind him smelling in the serenity. The sun was warming the hills on the horizon. I love this walk. The sound of the waves drown out the trivial thoughts in your brain and you can't help but relax. Bennie not so much. Dogs are fascinating sometimes. Bennie runs up to a friendly pooch, waves a tail, says hello, "Hello, I'm Bennie. Best in Class 2014..". Then runs off. Smells are more interesting. He likes to run ahead, nose down. He got way past where we had to exit so I sat down on the sand so he would see me and come back when he finished inhaling the good stuff. He stopped, looked ahead and raced back. Right past me towards the tiny black figure in the distance. I had to go after him. So much for the great nose.
