Mike and Helen Philpot invite us to their home for a meet up with our hounds. What a great time it will be walking your hounds on their five acres of land with open unpaved trails that go down to the Sangamon River. Afterward, they invite us to stay for a wonderful homemade lunch. All you will need to bring is a lawn chair. Water will be available for the dogs.
