April 3- Richmond Va.
Arrived in Richmond this afternoon. Last night we were in Four Oaks, North Carolina. Weather has been cool and rainy. Starting to see the start of Spring again, which is all right with us-- sure is beautiful down here in the south. Took a little side trip this afternoon to the Good Earth Peanut store. We are able to taste samples of peanuts in every form imaginable, boiled, roasted and dipped in chocolate. Also made into peanut brittle and combined with a variety of trail mixes. We were surprised that this much advertised store was located in a general store built in 1850 and looks pretty much like it did when it first opened. We were informed that much of the peanuts sold in many stores all over the states come from Virginia. So much for Georgia being peanut proud!
