We wait for the officials to do their official business in a bureaucratic manner. Rules and proper procedure defy the specific circumstances involved. Rules are made for a reason and then reason gets lost to the rules.
That meant there was time to get a little work done and I will be less backed up upon my return. Nice view up there. This view could be yours.
It comes with this nice little cabin, a two bedroom, two bath on a bit of acreage. You could even retain me as your assistant gardener.
And spend cool evenings high on a North Carolina mountain top gazing out at the view after a pleasant day in the garden.
But alas there would be a lot of forms to fill out for this view. Lucky me, I get to borrow it.
At some point what is ours should be returned to us after proper procedure is followed. Then we will head to Florida. There may be a lesson here. It would be a good idea to let all the procedures to follow come at their own pace, in their own good time and just be fine with that.
