Well, I'll jump back here to set the record straight on a few things...
the little bookstore turned a profit the third full month in business, which is phenomenal in ANY market...that's why it sold and had a more than a few truly interested paarties
as for leaving without proper notice to the landlord...he was advised THREE months before we left and we continued to advise. We did NOT leave utility bills unpaid and the condo was clean and we even paid a local lady to come in and clean so that it would be ready for the next tenant. We left coffee pot, blender and many kitchen items behind for the next tenant.
It is amazing how many folks will gossip, speculate and flat out lie on this bulletin board!
We left some really good friends and good times behind on the island, and well, some not so good folks...but you will find that anywhere.
