The list of things that has delayed this post is hysterical, if viewed from the right perspective, and includes an amazing farm tour in northern VA, insane traffic in same part of the state, vacuuming bees out of the floor joists of a house, and an overzealous dog on a leash. (Don’t worry – every one is fine.)
