A good friend sent me this video this morning. His father has known the gentleman featured, 91 year-old John O’Neil, for many years and attests to what a great fella he is. I don’t know Mr. O’Neil, but in the course of my work I have been fortunate to meet a lot folks like him, people who care personally and tenderly for land they have lived on for many, many years.
A nice summer respite from our catastrophic ruminations, no?
Update: Dang it. The Tusk is humbled by the usually straightforward process of “embedding” this news video into my blog. I simply cannot seem to get this thing to “embed” into the post. I will speak to the local WRAL station executive when next we meet. Surely the problem is on their end.
Anyway, it is still worth watching the old fashioned way, CLICK HERE!: http://www.wral.com/lifestyles/travel/video/7948562/
