“Matty told Hatty about a thing she saw

 Had two big horns and a wooly jaw…”

Relax. No horns.

When I drove out to Jean’s farm last week, my friend Jeanne-with-an-e came along and rode shotgun, because god only knows what dangers lurk just behind bucolic pastoral scenes, gamboling lambs and the gently rolling farmland of Wisconsin.

Since both Jean(ne)s are fabric artists and readers and people that like to hang around and eat muffins while other people are out taking pictures, they had plenty to do when I was off with my cameras. Before we made the trek back to Green Bay,  Jean was eager to introduce us to The Copper Llama, a yarn store/llama farm/little slice of wonderful right outside of metro Clintonville. While the pair of Jean(ne)s shopped for yarn, I introduced myself to the gals in the yard.
