Moving on

Well, sometimes things just fall into place. At the beginning of the year, my job workload shifted and I picked up larger responsibilities. I was also given the option of working from home. Ever since, the thought of working from home intrigued me, but I've been dragging my feet.

Over the week of the 4th of July, we had a family reunion back in my hometown of Millington, Tennessee. My mother still lives there and so does my brother and his family, as a matter of fact, their back yards are connected. My brother lives in a cul-d-sac where there are only 4 homes on large lots. Noticed that one of the houses had a Realtor sign out, but it also said it was sold. Didn't give it a second thought until the next day when I noticed that the sold portion of the sign was gone. Gave the realtor a call and set up a veiwing. Long story short, signed the papers this afternoon.

So, packing up the place here in Texas and hauling it all to Tennessee this weekend. I'll take a week of vacation and set up the new place and head back to wrap up some loose ends.

Not saying "Good By", but "See you Later". Heck, next year the CCR is going to be just right around the corner. Already making plans.

Re: Moving on

Doug, we'll miss you and Laura on Sundays; but the pull of home is very strong...Tanya and I know that well or we never would have moved back to Texas from the Pacific Northwest.

Good luck, and count on some company soon as you'll be in a great riding state!

Re: Moving on

Good on ya, Doug. Nearly full circle at the right time and place! Pre-planned wouldn't have had the wow factor of your family reunion results. Best to you and Laura.

Re: Moving on

We will miss you but going home is a great thing. Do not be a stranger & stop in here from time to time to say hi.

BTW is Laura getting into a nursing program up that way?

Re: Moving on

I haven't had the pleasure of meeting you and Laura, but wish you well. Was hoping to meet you this upcoming RTE since it is on a Saturday and I can make it. So long, maybe I can finally get to a CCR next year.

Re: Moving on

Welcome to the South East! I have fond memories of Millington from my early Navy days back in 70-71 and back again in 1980 for a summer. Looks alot different now (the base that is). See ya for sure at CCR if not sooner.

I always feel these things happen for a reason. Karma can be great. Congrats, to you both.
