Timing is Everything

And as you may know, contractors have no sense of time.

Our move is timed to coincide with the Stratton's move into their new cottage and their move is timed to coincide with it actually being finished. That looks like the end of November or early December. There is a silver lining to this... we have extra time to catalog all our stuff. The dark cloud, of course, is a cross-country trip in a U-haul in the middle of winter.

Staying on the Subject of Food...

Grocery & Nursery

Here is the closest of the Floyd groceries to our house. Apparently it's quite famous in the tail of Virginia. Not only is it an old fashioned, family owned, grocery selling locally grown produce of a quality you could never hope to find at your city health food store but it's also a sizable garden center!
