Still haven't finished editing up the list of notes I've been trying to keep the last year, but as of the 22 Sept, I've been here one year. My wife arrived a day earlier on 21 Sept.
Yeah, I'm a few days off, but hey....I'm retired and don't count 'em that close any more.
My son, Pebbles, and I left the house in Long Beach about 1000 on 20 Sept, and spent that night in St. George, UT, and then spent the night of 21 Sept in Grand Junction, CO, arriving in Fort Collins the afternoon of 22 Sept.
Took us a few days to settle in, and then "House Hunt 2017" started up. We found, agreed to buy, financed, insured, ordered cable and telephone, and closed on 31 Oct.
- WHEW! -
We moved in on 1 Nov, and proceeded to begin repairing all the little things that are invariable wrong with any "new" home you move in to. And some big things, too, like having a 65' cottonwood tree removed, the roof replaced, and all new windows installed.
So how do we like it? I love it, and my wife still misses her friends, but she's adjusting.
We were here about two weeks, and I turned to her one night and said "I'm Home".
And on my errands today, I heard a radio ad for a self-service dog wash, and they included a variety of shampoos, and all the towels you needed.
I'll try and go through the notes this week and come up with something about the culture shock of moving back to Free America. We've had some amusing incidents......
