we are officially GYPSIES again!

Sioux Plant, St. Charles Missouri
I guess it’s official.

Today John was offered the position of PROJECT ENGINEER at the Sioux Power Plant in St. Charles, Missouri.

I never in my whole life imagined this place, or that I would go there.

The job is for 3 months, but that probably means 6 months with more jobs (elsewhere) following this one.

So we are officially GYPSIES now.

This is the way we lived the first 7 years that we were married. We started in NY, then went to Iowa, Michigan, Oregon, Washington state, Virginia, back to NY, and then to South Florida, where we’ve been for 28 years!!

It’s definitely time to get a move on again.

John is leaving on Monday. I’m staying here until at least the middle of July. I have some medical stuff I need to take care of (a bone scan that my oncologist is insisting upon, etc.). Then Jubilee and I will head out. I want to document the whole trip with photos and commentary, which I will keep here.

Well, Beth, I'm going to miss you in Florida! But I congratulate John on finding a new job in these perilous times, and I wish the best for both of you. See you on the Web!

Sally, I treasure the gift of being able to come to know you IN PERSON, rather than just as an internet-friend. Our real life visits with each other are special.

But one of the things about the Web is I don't feel like I am leaving behind any of my friends. Most of my friends who live just a few miles away, I "see" more on the internet than in real life.

And we are not selling our house just yet. Housing prices are down now, and we really don't know what's going to happen after 6 months.
