[ Greenfield, VA ]  In what appears to have been a false flag (Nelly) May Day event, early morning reports of sightings of the missing Nelson Farmers’ Market mascot turned out to be bull. As in, Bull Sheetz.

Reports began trickling in Monday before 8 A.M. of Nelly May sightings at Ashley’s Market,  the southbound lane of Route 151 near Tuckahoe Antique Mall, and Wintergreen Hardware. Later in the day, we spotted the Nelly May look-alike standing near Hickman’s Grocery in Beech Grove. Apparently Sheetz the Bull is quite upset over Nelly May’s disappearance.

Hickman’s Grocery owner, Andy Hickman, had already left for the day when we entered his store. Perhaps, he too, is looking for some Nelly May.
