Up until a few weeks ago, this acreage was a beautiful forest filled with oaks and pines and a variety of bushes. It abuts one of Trilogy's trails.
Then, suddenly bulldozers appeared out of nowhere and knocked it all down, which, in my opinion, is a tragedy of monumental proportions and was doubtless made possible because some developer got the County Commissioners to approve a project which will make him a lot of money while destroying precious trees.
Although I've asked around, I have been unable to determine what the land will be used for. One rumor suggests it will be a large set of storage facilities for people who have more junk than they can store in their homes. You've probably heard the phrase "ostentatious consumption," which is often an apt designation of some citizens of this fair land.
The final fly in the ointment is that they've been burning the trees they knocked down filling the air with smoke making it hard to breathe in certain nearby areas.
This past weekend has been especially busy for myself and Lois Anne, so I'm a bit behind on my commenting. Also, with regard to the previous post featuring a bunch of chairs, those who guessed that it was a dentist's office were correct!

Dick's is a sporting goods store which sells just about any kind of sports equipment you can imagine along with clothing and shoes and guns and treadmills, etc.
Dick's also sells bicycles. The cheaper version. They look pretty good. And they're not bad. However, a bike repair man told me it's not always a good thing to buy a cheap bike. In a year or two it is likely to need repairs and you'll end up spending about as much as it cost originally to get it fixed.
He may have been exaggerating. But I don't think so; especially if you ride a lot.

...and believe, perhaps, that the couple that ________ and ________ together, stays together. Fill in the blanks with "bikes" and "kayaks" and see if that works. There are two kayaks. There is one bike, but it is a tandem, which means two can ride as one.
