I know, I know...it has been more than a week since I posted, and then it was to tell you that muzzer would be out of town and we would be back on Sunday!
Uh Uh...Didn't happen.
You see...while muzzer was in St. Loulis, she and Dad decided that we are moving. Again!
Since I came to live with these peripatetic hoomans, we have lived in VA., AZ, NM, MO., TN., and now they tell me we are moving back to VA!
I'd like to know if they have taken my need for permanency and security into account here?
Don't they remember how nervous I was when I came to live with them? How I acted out because I was afraid of being left behind?
Clearly, they have blocked this from their selective memories.
This means that muzzer is cleaning and packing and checking out houses in Richmond and putting MY BUNGALOW! up for sale. Hey! I really like this place. And I have finally figured out the mysterious "pet door." Sheesh.
So, here we are again. Teka says she is moving to Pah Duke Her to be with Willy Yum. I think I will post a muzzer wanted ad on my blog here and take my chances. They will be sorry...yes they will.
And now, a word from the muzzer:
We do apologize to all our blogging friends for being AWOL, and we cannot promise that this will be the last time it happens. Moving is pretty stressful, and this is our second in a two year period. (oh, those "living" experiences Gussie mentioned in New Mexico and Missouri were really just "visits" for 45-60 days in the summer. He did exaggerate a bit.)
So, the story really is that Rich has accepted a position at the University of Richmond as a "Distinguished Professor in Liberal Arts and Humanities" beginning with the fall semester. And we are leaving Memphis sometime in mid July for our new home (assuming the house hunting trip goes well.) And yes, we are selling his BUNGALOW and his BACK YARD! But we hope to find a new one for him. We are hoping he will adjust and not grow up warped and resentful.
On the bright side, we did not buy cemetery plots or niches for our urns, which we did discuss. And we are staying in the USA. And we are moving closer to E.Rabbit. But Memphis has been good to us, and we will leave behind some very dear friends and places we have come to love and appreciate.
I'll be spending more time on the airplane, flying to St. Louis. But less time on HWY 55, which is quite boring. And all our friends in Blog Land will still be right where we hope to find them.
So, if you were planning to visit us in Mayemphis, now is the time. But we will welcome you to Richmond and do the Civil War battlefield tour, Monticello, and etc.
And I promise we will post at least one new picture this weekend.
