#tbt to our trip to Virginia’s gorgeous (and tasty) Barrel Oak Winery, the dog-friendly winery we had to try after reading about it in #TravelsWithCasey, out next Tuesday!!! We had a great time: friends, dogs, and wine is the perfect combination. (at Barrel Oak Winery)

Alphablock seems like a totally normal kid’s alphabet block until you find “Y is for Yacht.” I know Y is a tricky one, but really? Yacht? This is of course my standard baby gift now.
King Lear With Sheep
King Lear with Sheep, performed for the first time on June 14th at the DIG warehouse in Lewisham, London, stars one man, who plays a director, and nine sheep. As the real-life directors, Believer deputy editor Lucie Elven and Heather Williams, look to take the play on the road, they make sense of the absurdity by creating a fictional director to whom King Lear with Sheep would have seemed perfectly logical.
Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to play Hamlet. But, because I was a little girl and Hamlet is a boy, in those more gender-bound, antediluvian times I thought I would perhaps settle for someone in King Lear, one of the daughters. Due to the isolated circumstances of my birth (unfortunately in the remotest localities of Somerset, on a bed of oolites north of the Mendip hills) I rarely experienced the joy of companionship with those of my own age and species. The early years of my childhood were intensely lonely. My only friends were the animals I encountered on nearby farms in Chew Valley. Though taciturn, they were friendly and obliging, and we passed many rural hours in pleasant amity, without drama.
King Lear and sheep. I didn’t know I needed this so desperately until right this second. LEAR. SHEEP.
