Editor’s Note: As you know, Brooks and I were amongst many bloggers invited down to Drew Estate a few weeks ago. Both Brooks and I brought our cameras, he used his (fortunately) and I didn’t, again, fortunately. On a personal note, there are very few halfwheel posts I actually have anticipation towards seeing, this is one of them.
