Happy 4th of July, Bacon Lovers!

It was a great day in Pinehurst, NC, for the annual 4th of July Parade and a special Sandhills Farmer’s Green Market event.

Met lots of new folks who had never known Pinehurst had a Farmer’s Market downtown, and plan on coming back to see us Saturday!

The rain miraculously held off (for our customers, that is, after deluging us vendors as we set up our tents and tables before the Market started) and everyone enjoyed the sunshine, free ice cream, lemonade, baked goods and fresh produce and crafts from our 18 vendors.

David grilled up Riley’s Ranch Brats and Italian sausage to give away as samples,

while bravely ignoring the bee sting in the corner of his eye that happened this morning on the way back from feeding the pigs.

Even in his Benadryl fog and hiding his swollen shut eye behind his cool shades, he was charming as ever—I don’t know how he did it.

He is my hero.

Me, on the other hand—I would have been at home in the bed, or in the ER worrying about my future eyesight.
