Last week we were on the road again with a return to the VA eastern shore. That's also the location of this this blog's namesake, the Frog & PenguINN, our former home. For those of you who may, or may not know, we have relocated to an apt in a former NH textile mill. However, we continue to make regular trips back to VA to check on the F&P.
It was time for the annual fall maintenance to be done. A local company thoroughly checks and services the heating and cooling system each fall and spring. While there have not been any major problems in previous years, that was not the case this time as a freon leak was found in the 1st floor compressor. A costly, but necessary repair, which is now done.
While there, we did some yard work that included trimming and mulching the front floor beds now that the flowering season is past.
And, it was also time for a realtor change. During the past six-month listing, there were some showings, but no offers. Time for a change. The new realtor is enthusiastic about marketing and selling the F&P. He has also renovated and is living in a nearby classic older home. We like his enthusiasm and hope it's contagious to a prospective buyer.
The Frog & PenguINN is ready for fall and a new owner who we hope will enjoy this old home as much as we have — and still do.
