Late last year, we made the call to give Floyd County a tryout for a new home.

Yes, the county I left after graduating from high school in 1965, the place from whence I vowed never to return, had gotten back under my skin.

Well, the tryout is over and we’ve decided. We’re coming home. Once the summer rush is over at our studio in The Jacksonville Center, we will return to our home in Arlington, pack up our belongings, and sell it.

We’re looking for a temporary residence in the county while we build a new home. Anybody got a nice place to rent to a local boy, his city-born wife and two cats?
