Wow, I'll bet you are exhausted. D's new job...Is it the Family Dollar that they just put in N. Towanda? I take my Grandma shopping at Hurley's and Rite Aid all the time. I will have to stop in there and introduce myself. :) I didn't realize they were open for business.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but what is winter rye? I've never heard of it.
