You Can't Get There from Here

At risk of sounding like a Tim Sample joke...

Rob went to the general store to get his midmorning cup of coffee, and while he was there some poor tourist poured himself a cup and sat down at the lunch counter next to a regular, Eliot (not his real name).

Poor Tourist: You've got a nice little town here.

Eliot: Used to.

PT: What do you mean?

Eliot: Too many damn people.

*General store erupts in snickers, Rob's included. PT gets up and leaves.*

Oh dear. If you're reading this, sir, please try us again in January.

Hi Ellen, just popping by to wave and say hello. We're counting down the days in this household until the release!

All the best, Donna
