    When I first met my husband he drove a brand-new 1973 Mercury Comet GT, white with orange pinstripes along the sides and orange vinyl interior -- and a manual transmission.

     How fortunate we are in our community that we have a group of delightful folks who every week bring delicious, homegrown vegetables and fruit to market at very reasonable prices. Several years ago my husband and I sold at a Farmer’s Market in Paris. It was fun, lots of hard work and not a particularly good way to make money.
