Here in the north country, the leaves are starting to turn. It is a sure sign that fall is right around the corner and with it the first of the fall fairs. The Vermont Sheep & Wool festival is next weekend, Sept 6-7th, 2008. For anyone wishing to attend, it is once again being held at the Champlain Valley Expo, in Essex Junction, just outside of Burlington. There is a $1.00 off coupon on the website.
