Veggie Voyagers

Couple travelled 30 states and 3 Canadian provinces between 7/07 and 5/08 running their 1987 Ford truck on straight veggie oil. The blog continues with a focus on the natural world and energy politics from a personal perspective

 Two things have helped us feel better this Valentines Day. One is the return of rain and clouds (even though it is said it will not make a dent in our over-all drought. The plants don't realize it and are springing out gang-busters.) The second is the adoption of Selkie.
 She's an affectionate seven year old labradoodle who is adjusting to mud and farm life (like staying out of the cultivated rows) really well.
 In most of the photos she's a busy blur. It makes us happy to have her with us and we've been more active around the land since the dog and the moisture entered our lives.
 I love Michael so much and am really glad we finally found a dog as we'd looked for quite awhile and it seemed impossible to find another Airedale. The shelters are sad places, even the no-kill shelters, as the dogs are just waiting and waiting and many will never find homes, especially the pits, which are the main breed filling the shelters. Selkie came from private adoption and we really appreciate how easy it turned out to be. We three are falling in love.
