There's a "Hunters' fayre" on this weekend in our local town. With demonstrations of different types of hunting dogs, falconry and SAR. I'm really interested, but also rather concerned I'll see things I'm not happy about - the Spanish aren't renowned for their good treatment of their hunting dogs. Still, it's worth going along to see, without making any assumptions in advance. http://cazafir.org/ J is very happy that the bar opens at 9:30am. There are certain things that are done very well around here, and daytime drinking is one of them Another nearby town also has a cherry festival this weekend. Man, I love cherries. It's the height of fruit-picking season right now, so I'm hoping to eat my bodyweight in local produce.
