A total solar eclipse!  Exciting!  Actually, we’re just a few miles west of the total eclipse viewing area, so while we didn’t get the full experience of a total eclipse, it did get dusky.  Patrick even drove home from work to experience it!

The day was memorable also because Roy and Ruby came out with his tractor to mow the field!  Roy has cattle near McCormick, SC and Hendersonville, NC.  Ruby is his sweet, steadfast companion.  Such a sweet dog! Sophie and Ruby had much fun playing and wrestling.

So, Sophie, Ruby, Patrick and I watched the hardworking Roy bale hay while waiting for the eclipse.  We hope Roy and Ruby come back to visit again soon!
