My wife and I went to the famous Apple Butter Festival at Skyland last Fall and it was really wonderful. Lots of families were there with their children and pets and everyone had a great time. I’ll be at the National Park Service booth from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm so please stop by to say hello. I’ll be the one eating blackberry pie, blackberry ice cream, and juggling jars of blackberry jam. I’ll see you there!
