Back and update...Changing Lodgings!

Sorry for the lack of posting. Having one's hand splinted really makes typing mot a lot of fun. But the hand is progressing and half of the splinting has been removed now, with the other half due to come off in a week if things keep on the way that they are.

In other news--and another reason for my sparseness on-line...the dogs and I are relocating next month! It's officially official and we're off to the land of tourists and tow boats, tasty treats and tramps...New Orleans, LA.
I do love that city.

I'll be moving down next month, so posting may get a bit sporadic, but the dogs and I will still be on-line. And of course, once we're settled, anyone who was welcomed at the Lair before will still be welcome to the new abode down in the Crescent City.


Oh--and of course any friends with trucks are more than welcome to make a drive from WV to the land of the bars that never close.

  2. Great news! You'll be within driving distance of us, and Old NFO, and Lawdog and Phlegmmy - about 10-12 hours from N.O., the lower figure if you bypass the traffic nightmare of DFW.

  8. Good for you! NOLA as seedy and seamy as it can be is my favorite city. If you need to overnight on the trip down while outside of the Nashville TN area let me know and I'll get you squared away.

  25. So, I move out of NOLA, THEN you move in!! Our dogs would've had such fun playing! They may have a little "climate shock!" Not much snow-romping down there. Best of luck in the move. I'm interested in knowing which area you chose to live.
