A Family Portrait
In case you like to put a face to a voice, here's a photo of the Carr family — John, Angie, Eva (with Harmonica), and Pierre (with Noodle) — taken after today's Urban Chickens show:
The Carrs were gracious hosts. I arrived as they were sitting down to a breakfast of toast and bacon and bright yellow backyard eggs. They offered me a bite but, in a fit of journalistic scruples, I said no. After all, I didn't want to bias my hard-hitting reporting because of the rich, lingering taste of a mouthful of eggs.
It was a major tactical mistake.
I realized that on the way back to the studio after the show when, ravenous, I got a greasy but tasteless egg and sausage sandwich from a locally heralded chain.
I've learned my lesson. I'll be ready when we cover heritage pigs...
