Argus Courier, “South County Notebook”

How I wish I had been on the spot with my camera in hand in the narrow lane of unincorporated I Street, when the heavens opened late afternoon on Veterans Day.

For Tara Firma biodynamic Farm customers Tillman Bussey and Trisha Almond’s romantic scooter ride to pick up their pasture-raised Thanksgiving turkey order turned into more of an all-terrain adventure than the Gulf War vets had bargained for.

Almond, activist, director, founder and president of Petaluma-based Guided To Safety organization also happens to be my mail carrier and it was under clear, blue skies the next day by my mail box that I heard  of the couple’s wild, green-shopping expedition.

“The rain had stopped when we’d set off,” said Almond, planning ahead on her holiday shopping checklist.  By the time they’d arrived at the farm store, the intrepid duo were drenched.  “Even the barnyard animals stopped to stare as we pulled up in the mud.” Unperturbed, with prized, pastured turkey on board, Petaluma’s popular scooter couple took to the open road, turned left and braved the torrents back into town.

Mission accomplished!
