September 2014

Dear Fisherfolk,

Questionable information on the internet says that we are born and live our entire lives with the same size eyes. Our ears and noses grow. This may or may not be verifiable, but we can verify that Ezra has shrunk an inch and grown one shoe size since he was in college. We’re not sure if his nose and his ears are still growing. Keith is not measuring!

Michael Hearne's Big Barn Dance

Information you can count on is that Trout will be at Michael Hearne’s Big Barn Dance again this year! The festival features top notch songwriters and musicians set in Taos, NM. If you have time to travel to a festival this September, this one gets our highest recommendation! If the Barn Dance was a normal 11 year old boy, it would wear somewhere between a size 6-9. If the festival is going to grow up to be as big as Ezra, it would be wearing a size 12 shoe right about now.

Canned pickles and hot sauce

Ezra’s summer canning

The Idlets are harvesting their garden right now. 32 quarts of sweet pickles have been put up and hot sauce is currently being made from the cayenne peppers and tomatoes that have been picked. There’s been a lot of time spent working in the kitchen, but it’s fun time. Greg Brown has a song called Canned Goods that pretty much says it all. Check this video out!

Wherever you are, we hope your summer is going well. Cooler weather is just around the corner. If your shoes still fit you pretty well, it’s a safe guess that they’re not growing too fast. If they’re too small, get some bigger ones. Can’t help with the nose or ears though.

Troutfully yours,
Keith and Ezra
