Budding farmer seeking stick shift lessons

Posted by Hillary this week on her Winooski Front Porch Forum

Hey friends!

I’m new to the neighborhood — I’ve loved FPF since I joined… I’m hoping you can help me!

I’m a young farmer and am applying for my absolute dream job. I have made it to the 2nd round of interviews and just found out that I must know how to drive manual. And I don’t… yet. Hopefully that’s where you come in!

Would you mind helping me learn how to drive manual? I’m a quick study and understand the way a manual transmission works. I’ve used many tractors and am familiar with shifting and clutches… I’ve just never had the chance to learn!

I’d be happy to rent a manual transmission car if you don’t feel comfortable driving yours. I can offer lunch at Pingala (my favorite place!) or some beers for an hour or so of your time.

Hoping to hear from you! Thanks!!

What’s on your FPF?

Front Porch Foursome

Posted on the Jericho FPF today by Ted…

My daughter and I went to Harvest Market today, like thousands of others. It was a great 40th anniversary event, and I especially liked a new group… Front Porch Foursome… four women who met on Front Porch Forum and played in front of the church. They were great!  I hope they put out an album… soon. Thanks, ladies.
