I was hanging out at the Fiber Nook outside the sheep barn, when I noticed our good Senator behind me. I instinctively grabbed my camera (aka, iPhone) and handed it to Sarah. Sarah didn’t see Bernie, and thought some commotion or trouble was happening, and that I was “springing to action” (her words).
I watched while Bernie spoke with a little girl and her parents, and posed with the girl and her cow. I extended my hand, and introduced myself. (We’ve met, but I didn’t want to put him on the spot.) I said I was a big supporter, he thanked me, and I asked if he minded if my wife took our picture together. He said “sure!,” and suggested she get in the picture as well. He pointing to a man he was with and suggested he take the shot. We thanked him and he went on his way. He never turned anyone away who wanted a word or a picture. I saw so many photos of Fair-goers and Bernie on Instagram and Facebook. What a guy. Thanks for stopping by the sheep barn, Bernie!
