The Golden Age of Hollywood

Just wanted all my friends here at GAOH know that if you see very little of me for a while it's because my wife and I are retiring and relocating from Texas to Tennessee. We went on vacation there in early June and decided that was where we wanted to retire to. Last week we placed our home on the market and in five days we got a full cash offer we couldn't refuse. Unfortunately, the new owner wanted us to close in three weeks and we had not yet found a home in Tennessee yet to move to. So our realtor out there was trying frantically to find us a new home. We finally found one and then we were not sure our lending agent could close on time. So, we had to find another agent who could. I have been so busy trying to iron out the details of selling our home and buying and now moving I have had very little time for this site and probably will not until sometime in mid-September. I don't yet know how long I will be without the Internet at the new house but even if we had it on day one I suspect it will be three or four weeks of unpacking and organizing before I'll be ready to venture much into the online world. 

So, Dave Miller, it's up to you to keep a steady ship. Don't worry I shall return!

Ah, coming down to the wire! I wish you, your wife and the cats an uneventful move. For something lasting more than several days, moving is up near the top of my list as a nasty experience one should avoid. I, too, recently moved, and I still have boxes stacked in the living room waiting to be sorted out. I simply dread upending my life, and I do hope your move goes more smoothly than mine. Good luck!

Well, folks, this is the big week. Sunday is moving day and we move into our new house next Wednesday. So far everything has been going smoothly. I'll sure be glad when it's over though. These last two weeks of packing everything we own and now mostly living out of boxes has not been fun. That said though, we are looking forward to our new home. We hope our cats can make the transition well. They are a little confused about the house being all tore up.

Congratulations on your retirement, and good luck with the move to Tennessee.

Tennessee!  How exciting!  My husband I wanted to move there back in the late 90's.  It didn't work out for that to happen, but East Tennessee remains one of my favorite places in the country.  

Much happiness to you and your wife as you begin this new chapter of your lives.
