It Ain't Over until the Last One Drops!

Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over until the fat lady sings." Well it is true with the leaf season - it ain't over until the last leaf drops - at least here in West Virginia. Yes, we are past peak - our tress are no longer wearing their "Saturday night date clothes". But while some were getting ready for that Saturday night date, there were some who were like many people, "late bloomers" still wearing their green until they were darned good and ready to change.

This is not a frat house, keep your pants on!


Disclaimer - as the admin of this blog I want to allow you a moment of tongue in cheek innkeeping with Agnes. She speaks her mind and no one can corral her. The opinions/commentary posted here do not represent me or any other innkeepers. So take that for what it is worth and to each his own style. She is not trying to be offensive (I don't think) I actually spawned the topic on twitter. -Shellie.

After checking my twitter account I saw some tweets by the innkeeper I call Virginia and it made me wonder "How many people think that staying in a B&B is like staying in someone's house? How many think it is like staying in their own house?"
