The grocery store is a clean well-stocked place to shop and the prices are reasonable. It is not junky.<quoted text>
Unlike myself, you have not lived here long enough to know that the junk has rematerialized many times over, and has also become a part of the landscape of any newly acquired properties over the years.
Also, the hardware store has been a lifesaver for me. Wade donated fertilizer, soil, and equipment for the sprinkler system at Kasihta Commons. I just step around the "junk".
