    ...buy a new house!

    Yep, there goes my mad money. The 'ol lady, four Greyhounds and I are moving to a town about 30 miles south of here. After 16 years in our "starter home", it was time.

    We're getting a much larger home in a nice part of town, and are doubling our square footage on the main floor (both our old and new homes are ranches) plus gaining a full basement. So, we're going from 990 square feet to over 2000 total, plus the basement, a 2 1/2 car garage and an attic storage room. I'll finally have room for a permanent practice space! Our neighbors are going from gangbanger wannabes and boom cars to business owners and professionals.

    So, I may be a bit scarce around here for the next month or two. I'll still be checking in at least daily, but will probably be mostly in lurk mode.

    Someone else take up the defense of Bag End, Steinbergers, RBIs and Tacoma ABGs while I'm gone, m'kay?
     
  2. Along with the GAS I've gotta big case of "Been there, Done that's"

    Congratulations on the acquisition. Now you've got to come up with some clever title for it like "palacial estate" or "sprawling manor" :)

    Ver' nice, ver' nice. Congratulations! Let's see... 30 minutes south puts you in... Midlothien? Joliet? I don't know. I never go on the south side unless I'm going to Tinley Park. (Is it Tinley Park? How convenient would that be? Concerts galore!)
