Where to start?
Remember a couple years ago when we had some land for sale? I posted it here, and we had some people looking, but it didn't sell. The realtor's contract expired and we forgot about it for a while.
Then I started talking about retiring. In order to do that, we needed to get rid of our mortgage. The way to do that was to sell that land. So I posted it, on a whim, on a homesteading forum.
I got one reply, and it was from someone I met here on this blog. Warren has a blog too, My Home Among the Hills. I started reading his blog a couple years back because he does all kinds of interesting stuff, but the coolest thing is that he's a beekeeper.
When I got on Facebook, I saw Warren's name on my cousin's posts--how did that happen? Well, in this small, small world of West Virginia, it turned out that Warren worked with my cousin--they were actually co-owners of the same company. Now I only have two or three cousins in West Virginia, so what are the odds? Warren was interested in our land, came to look, and now, if the title search goes well (and it should), he'll eventually be our neighbor! I can't tell you how happy that makes me.
This online community continues to amaze me. I met Cathy of Whippoorwill Wood here, and now she works at the library with me. I met Susan online when she lived in Ireland, and now she lives in West Virginia and has become a dear friend. I met Warren on this blog, and now he'll be my neighbor. The connections, like a web, continue to expand. What a world this is.
This was taken from the land we are selling. It is a beautiful place and I am glad it will have such good owners.
