Anyways, it's a new adventure & the house is really perfect in so many ways = fenced-in yard, a few minutes walk to a huge park, fireplace, garage, plenty of trees, & a skylight upstairs. I'm excited about a two story house - never have lived in one! About the only thing I see that I'm not crazy about is the very early 90's wallpaper in the kitchen... oh well. Our move-in date is 16Aug, so I have several weeks more in Athens than expected - to me if feels like finding out your test has been moved a week further out - I still have a good ways to go on the packing & now feel I can be just as tedious with the second half as the first half. Our new place in Richmond Hill:

It is my greatest hope however, that you find a deep love and respect for all things natural and wild, and that the simple things in life please you as much as they do your old man. May you enjoy many sunny days afield. I love you.

Please send a shout out to Joe today (gobblerman at gmail dot com), as he's spending it away from his family, working in Richmond Hill - I took a few minutes tonight & found some great pics of Joe to share, enjoy...
Ahhh... another Wyoming pic (so many good pics from that summer, and of course a place we plan to have a 'summer home' as soon as possible)... just another day at work... we were working as field biologist for the USFS surveying for Goshawks - no hawks this day, but I do believe Joe spotted a juvenile Golden Eagle - a nice day afield...

Reading Barnyard Dance for the thousandth time, I love that he loves books, he continually brings us books to read to him - he'll hand one to you & then turn around backwards, ready to back into your lap for a good read
I'm always behind the camera - I'll occasionally ask Joe to please document my existence, as I photograph his every endeavour - me sipping wine on the back porch during the late afternoon

Completely random fact for your day: dryer lint can be added to your compost pile.

Really close friends in graduate school, it's funny that Joe & Max both defended this week - and both start their new jobs next week - we'll be an hour away from Max once we move to Savannah - he'll be a manager on Groton Plantation in South Carolina
"And I did it all in my Jerry Garcia tie" - my favorite Burnam quote of the day
Carrie made the day by watching Levi for the entire afternoon while Joe and I were on campus

As more & more of our 'stuff' finds its way to the local Goodwill drop off center, I experience something akin to 'buyers remorse' - except it's more like 'parting regret' - coming from a lineage of packrats & misers, my genetic predisposition is to hoard - I picture a news clipping Carrie has on her refrigerator door: it is a photograph of Ghandi's worldly possessions at the time of his death - the entire collection would not fill a shoebox - genetics can be modified by environmental conditions and therefore, it is an axe rather than a scalpel I am using to 'trim' away our possessions
