Two weeks to take off...

Just returned from NE Pennsylvania and a whirlwind visit to prepare our jointly-owned family homestead for sale. It was just 2 weeks from announcement that the house and 4+acres had a buyer and I was able to return. And yet, in just that time the subprime housing market collapse ripples had spread fast with now uncertain effects on the "sure-thing" sale we initially had. The house needed a good cleanup anyway, and enjoyed time with my cousin Bob and brief visits with old friends. It's a little shaky now but we're making ready again for Europe anyway. Nancy made good use of the time and started "practice packing" the suitcases. She also spent time sewing and modifying bed linens and other items for the trip. That's it for now...happy trails from back in Prescott.
