Civic Duty

My apologies for the lack of posts today. I was doing my civic duty and attending a meeting of our county's planning and zoning commission. To be clear, better to put pins in your eyes than to have to sit through such an event. And, as it happened, the commission members, one of whom really, really liked the sound of his own voice, asked questions of their own staff for three hours, then one hour from the developer, and then, having made the fifty or so members of the public sit and wait for four hours, they adjourned for lunch. Yeesh!

Anyway, the developer seemed to have answers for all the questions and, God and the zoning commission willing, they will be opening a Whole Foods two blocks from my house within a couple of years. Yum!
