Thats right this is my final post from this house!

We bought a new (new to us) house (foreclosure) at the beginning of August, and today is last day of the move, just cleaning and have to move a half cord of oak fire wood.  Internet is still on because new house won't get service until tomorrow.  My MES has sat under my dining room eave for 21/2 years under a cover and faithfully performed multiple times each month.  Now I have to build a protective area for my BBQ equip, and I hope the ol MES keeps kicking out great Q from its new home.

I have to say I hate moving, this has been the slowest, longest move process we have ever experienced.  We must have thrown away a ton of accumulated crap and still are giving stuff away.  One thing I'm looking forward to is building my own man-cave area, there is already a shed not quite big enough but easily can be enlarged, it will do nicely.

Well back to finishing up before the wife checks on me... :)

Congrats on your new home deltadude!

See ya on the flip-side!

We threw more crap out on our last move than we ever did, but we went to a house about half the size of the last one.

Don't want to alarm you, but it probably won't be long that you'll say, "Damn, I wish I would have kept that thing!"

Thanks for all the comments and well wishing!

I finally got internet a couple of days ago, but still don't have a computer desk setup, one of our sons said he was moving back in for a few months, so there goes the room for an office.  Big switch in internet for us, we have been with pacbell/sbc/AT&T since before there was DSL.  I was an original beta tester for modem dial-up starting back in 94, and was first on that block to have more than dial-up when I went with ISDN for my home office needs.  We moved and got DSL, I have been a serious supporter of DSL because I invested in stock with the original company that wrote the main DSL protocol and mfg DSL chips, that company was later bought out by Texas Instruments.  However DSL isn't available where we live (at least at an acceptable speed) so we are now Comcast for Internet/TV/Voice.  I was hoping to go with Surewest for DSL/Voice and Direct TV and get the NFL Ticket promotion, but the speed of DSL was only 1 mb, way too slow, my son was disappointed in NO NFL Ticket.

Bearcarver, I hear ya, this move was a size reduction for us too, should be our final move (unless this house turns out to be uncomfortable for some reason).

Again thanks for all the kind words...

Congrats on the new homestead, as far as a man cave goes, use the garage, and turn that shed into a smokehouse.

DD,

I better clarify that. I didn't mean the house, I meant you'll say, "Damn I wish I wouldn't have thrown this or that out".

I don't know how many times, since we moved, I have asked Mrs Bear, "Did you hide that thing, or did I throw it away when we moved?"
