John Woestendiek, a Pulitzer Prize-winning former journalist at the Baltimore Sun who now blogs on all-things-dog at Ohmidog!, has been on an extended trip across the United States with his dog Ace, inspired by (and retracing part of) John Steinbeck's journey in "Travels with Charley." John had first met us back in Ovando when he was a visiting professor at the University of Montana's School of Journalism several years ago. He and Ace came by last fall not long after we moved to New Hampshire. John is writing about his adventures with Ace on his site Travels With Ace.
Well, John has produced a calendar for 2012 featuring some of the highlights of the journey, and one month focuses on his visit to us here in New Hampshire. He has graciously dedicated 50% of the profits from the calendar sales to benefit the animals here. (Thank you, John!)
You can see more about the calendar here -- and on that page you'll see a photo of me with blind Patti that almost made me cry. When John sent me the link, I clicked on it, the page opened ... and there was the photo.
We're grateful to John for making such a generous offer to the farm!
