virginia: "Bah Home Bug!" An Ode to Christmas - 12/22/14 12:50 PM
I am a lonely home with no one here to fill me
I sit all day and all night hoping in the future there will be
A person or a family

With out a doubt or dismay
I will be SOLD again soon one day.
They will work day … (0 comments)

So as the weather advisory looms calling for 2-5 inches tonight in Farmville, Virginia....I thought I'd look on the bright side. Safe travels in the snow.
