"To find Deep Valley in this bustling modern city, you have to close your eyes to the airport, to the streams of automobiles, and to many beautiful new homes and schools and shops. You have to imagine horses and carriages, ladies with trailing skirts and ruffled parasols and children in long black stockings."
~ Maud Hart Lovelace (1961)
As if there wasn't already enough to be excited about I have still further good news!
