Yesterday was the farm tour in our area and Filbert and I were invited to come to a farm and demonstrate a little goat packing. We are qualified to demonstrate this for two reasons...
1. Filbert owns a pack. He's carried water and chocolates.
2. We been hiking exactly twice.
Not knowing really what we would do I resorted to what I know best, kids and chocolate. I filled Filbert's pack with miniature candy bars and zipped it shut. At first I thought it might be a mistake because it seemed that the parents that take their kids on farm tours don't let them eat candy. I was really doubting my choice when one mother searched the pack for something gluten-free.
For the most part I saw lots of smiles and heard many thanks to Filbert.
Filbert is a professional. He took his job very seriously.
I tell you it was rough...
The worst part was letting Alice tag along.
She got half the peanuts.
