Home Sweet Home
Whose stuff is all of this?
Janet and Nick worked on this room!
After a long 16 hour drive, Maynard and I made it to Franklin at dark-thirty Friday night. We really wanted to get here during daylight hours but were held up in the Memphis area by a wreck on I-40. Fortunately, not for 4 hours but long enough that it was dark before we got to Franklin. My cats were perfect - no howling, etc which really surprised me. As tiring as the move has been, things really fell into place and everyone showed up as scheduled. The Penske truck was ready as promised, Patron movers showed up on time and packed everything, and Two Men & A Truck had it all unloaded first thing Saturday morning. Janet and Nick arrived with lunch around noon and stayed to help unpack boxes. With the four of us working, we made a good dent but there is still much to be done. Maynard flew home Sunday afternoon after organizing my storage area that morning. Janet and Nick helped me find a bed for the guest room and went home Sunday night. I took a nap after everyone left:) When I got up, it was all waiting for me. No fairies had been to visit unfortunately.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
