We are Here

Thank you for all of your warm wishes to us Irene took hold over us.
Thankfully we escaped most of the fury.
Are Hearts go out to all of those who were effected by Irene.
I am so saddened by the devestation in particular to Vermont.
My husband and I love to take weekend getaways to the small towns of Vermont. We have met some of the most WONDERFUL people there.
If you ever stay or travel in VT. Please stop in to

Jamaica was one of the towns effected by Irene.
It is filled with the most good natured, truly caring people and Best! baked goods. Just down the road is Harmonyville ( yes, I almost talked my husband into moving there just so I could say I lived in Harmonyville ). A little farther down the road is Townshend ( stop in for great smoked meats and cheeses ), The town in which scenes from Chevy Chases' movie Funny Farm was filmed. A truly warm and kind community.

Folk N' Fiber has a new website Be sure to check it out!

So glad you are back and safe and sound. My brother has a home in VT and was very very lucky he had no damage or water or anything. He told us it's really a mess up there. So sad. Mother Nature can sure be a nasty ole gal!

Cyndi, Thank you so much. So glad your brother is okay. We are going to make it a point to head up there in a few months to visit the towns ( and stock up on really good hams for the freezer! ). Mother nature sure can be nasty!

I am so relieved to hear you are OK!! I tried to call several times, I just knew you all were swirling around in wet wool running for higher ground! You guys take care. (I'd like to see those Vermont towns someday.) I know they lost some historic bridges and I could not believe all that gushing water everywhere I saw on TV. I pray all the families and pets that had to go through Irene that God will give them strength. And Thank Heavens for Betsy and Crew! Love, Jeanne
