One of our new neighbors (a graphic artist) says that the color orange stimulates both appetite and conversation. But also that restaurants use it because it makes people eat quickly. Think we’re going to be bolting down our food now.

Sam poses with the Hoovers, just before they vacated the house that they lived in for 40 years. Lovely people. They left Sam a surprise gift in what will be her room. And now the house is all ours! (Oh my. Do we have a lot of work to do.)
