For now, he gets his little square box in the church area garden. I’m not a nature woman but did find a publication title that caught my eye in the collection. It was “Goodbye, My Subaru”, created by Doug Penalty. It caught my interest because that’s the brand name of vehicle I drive. The cover image was adorable, with a yard growing under the hood of the vehicle.
Doug was previously a journalist who got a parcel as a bachelor with the objective of settling down and going environment-friendly all the way.
This book was an enjoyable, light-hearted read. His experiences began with auto difficulty, a flash flood, purchasing two goats as well as some chicks. The goats got into mischief however he expanded attached to them. He needed to encourage the inspector that his residential property was a ranch. He moved on to trying grease fuel, mounting photovoltaic panels as well as a well, searching and also gardening.
As with lots of small town stories, there were local characters, including his hippie next-door neighbor. Of course, they saw him as the personality.

He ultimately figured things out and also located love along the road.
