Miss D. and I left home (our old home, I mean) at about 4.30 a.m. After a long, tiring but peaceful journey, we arrived safely at our destination in northern Texas at about 7 p.m., to be met by Old NFO (with whom we're staying for a few days - we're the first sleep-over guests in his new retirement home, AFAIK), Lawdog and Phlegmmy. Much laughter and enjoyment was shared over a light supper and copious quantities of tea and other liquids. It's always fun to reunite with old friends.
We've got a very busy week ahead. We close on our new house on Tuesday; we have to change all the locks, and the code on the garage door opener; we have to measure the bedrooms for new flooring, find something we like, buy it, and carry it to the house where people will install it over the next couple of weeks; we have to unload all the stuff we brought down and store it safely; and then we're leaving my pickup and trailer here, and renting a car to get back to Nashville next weekend. In between all that lot there'll doubtless be much more shopping, measuring and getting quotes to fix up various things, as well as enjoying the company of friends.
I'll put up more blog posts as and when time allows.
