New House

There aren't many things more fun than seeing people you love move into their dream house, and so last night it was a blast to slide by and see nephew Drew and niece-in-law Laura start setting up shop in their magnificent new abode.

I'll have to get you some pictures to show you, because my thousand words couldn't do justice to the coolness of this manse.

Just as a hint: three refrigerators. Three kitchen faucets.

Edgar A. Guest, vendor of populist poems many years ago, said "It takes a heap o' livin' to make a house a home," and with three kids: Preslee and Mason, the Top-Notch Twins, and their baby sister Finley (our goddaughter), there will be heaps o' living at this house. Also heaps of laundry, heaps of deer running around in the yard, and someday, heaps of young men, showing up at the door to take the girls out.

But don't fret: their cousin Alex was over tonight, and I have a feeling he is going to look over the would-be swains and beaus with both eyes open.

This is gonna be GREAT!

And...we're headed to Friendly Farm with Tatum and Joshua on Saturday...can't wait to meet him. What a great guy he is. A true gentle gentleman.
