I met Bob at the Cayuga County Fair in Weedsport, N.Y. Bob and his wife, Carole, own and operate a milking goat farm about 45 minutes outside of Rochester. Three weeks before these photos were taken Bob had suffered a stroke. This was his first time back at the fairs with his goats.
The Flying Dutchman?
“Who hath seen the Phantom Ship,
Her lordly rise and lowly dip,
Careering o’er the lonesome main,
No port shall know her keel again…
Ah, woe is in the awful sight,
The sailor finds there eternal night,
‘Neath the waters he shall ever sleep,
And Ocean will the secret keep”
― Albert Pinkham Ryder 1897
