I thought if I went to a very rural general store they just might have a few warm scones that I could enjoy with some fresh brewed "Live Free or Die" coffee.
Four general stores were visited and all they had was an assortment of holiday cookies (broken turkeys) eight day old pumpkin pies (I bought 2 slices, what the heck) and pre Christmas candy canes by the hundreds, perhaps thousands. I continued my driving. Map in hand.
By the afternoon I was a bit discouraged and headed to an even more out of the way rural town.
On my way I found a nice flock of sheep that watched me as I drove by.
So I backed up.
The heavy duty furnace are dotted amongst the hills, woods and fields of the rural areas in these 2 pioneer states. (NH & VT) These are very efficient furnaces. They burn wood, coal, corn, and anything that can burn. I have watched entire old barns be torn down and used as fuel for these free standing units. One torn down barn has been feeding the nearby furnace for 4 years and counting.
Here is some info on the pros and cons of these cost efficient digesters.
These nice ewes look like Dorsets.
Oh well... I stopped driving East and turned around in this barnyard and headed back home.
When ever I start looking at sheep, I get tired.
Hope you are having a wonderful week.
Got scones ?
