‘Old coots’ dish out advice at farmers market
After several posts in the Ledyard Community Forum on Facebook suggesting it, the Ledyard Farmers Market hosted an “Old Coots” booth at its Old Fashioned Market on Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Advertised as “Giving advice... it’s probably bad advice, but it’s free,” “old coots” Andrea Carpenter, Mike Cherry, David Holdridge and Laura Rowe offered helpful tidbits to passersby, ranging from general words of wisdom like “Your spouse is always right” and “If you need to feel accomplished about something, mow your lawn” to specific advice on getting rid of junk and finding a new home.
