Above, Caitlin Mixter, of Charlottesville shows off her two new kitties recently adopted from the Almost Home Pet Adoption Center in Lovingston. “I wanted to get a kitty because I am moving next year and wanted the cats to be older and be able to take care of themselves by the time I am working, says Caitlin. Caitlin saw the cute little kitties recently at an SPCA booth in Charlottesville and came out to Nelson to adopt them.

Friday was a great day where, yours truly, was the emcee for The Wintergreen Nature Foundation’s annual golf tournament over at Stoney Creek Golf Course. It’s a great cause, and a great day of golf. The guys at TWNF do excellent work and this was a huge benefit fund raiser for them. Perfect success for 2007!
