Goin' Up the Country

We made our annual mid-October trek up to Amy and Darrell's place in Meriden, New Hampshire, not far from Lebanon and Hanover. We got to see the peak foliage along Route 89 and celebrated Molly's birthday. Darrell built the house, the woodworking shop, and the chicken coop to match.

Even though Amy and Darrell have professional careers in medicine and education, they keep chickens and ducks and grow their own vegetables.

However, it was probably the beef cattle outside the kitchen window that made Amy realize, "Hey! I think I've been tricked! I think I live on a farm!"
