We Finally Moved In!!!!

It’s good to be back with you guys after a four month break. Cathey and I moved into our new home, three weeks ago, and we finally have everything in place inside the house. We completed all the landscaping in the front and sides of the house a couple of days ago but still have a lot more landscaping ahead of us. The back is still a work in progress while we wait for rain to pack the fill dirt so the fence post will whole must better. The lot that the house is built on is backed up against property owned by General Motors and will never be developed. We see deer and turkey daily in the woods behind the house. 

We lived upstairs with our daughter’s family for 16 weeks while we were in the building process. Between constructing our house and painting all the rooms in our daughter’s house gave little time for fishing. I did make a couple of trips to the Caney Fork that I will report on later, but no fishing from the boat was possible, too hot and too busy everyday. Tennessee has some fantastic small lakes near home and of course the Caney is close as well; spring can’t get here faster enough for me!!!

 

Wishing everyone a great Thanksgiving Day

Welcome back, Bill, you have sure been missed by this ol' Geezer. So happy to hear that your moving end of it is over. Yet, I understand lots of work still to be done. Looking forward to your adventures in 2017........

Happy Thanksgiving and be safe.

Hope to get everything in place by spring, when the fishing here is the best!! I've missed all my blog buddies---thanks for the comment

Bill, welcome back. Having gone through the move a year ago April, I understand. I've come to the conclusion that there is no such thing as a "move in ready" house even if it's brand new. Happy Thanksgiving and get out there and fish some. You could probably use some rest.

Bill, glad you are all settled in. Let me know when you have some time and let's get together on the Caney Fork. Happy Thanksgiving btw!

I agree, moving is for the young, not guys our age. Cathey and I found out the stress factor is a big part of any move, just glad it is coming to an end. Hope to fish some fantastic lakesin the coming year here in Tennessee Thanks for the comment

Hi David
I will certainly take you up on the offer, if time permits, if not I will meet you on the Caney in the Spring for a few trips. Thanks for the comment

Congrats on making a successful move, Bill. It's never easy doing something like that, but I'm glad all is well and you're back at the "ready to fish" stage!

Cathey and I are thrilled to be in a house, and not an upstairs room, which was the case for both of us for close to 16 weeks. Fishing can't come sooner enough for me--thanks for the comment

Yay! You are back! I'm sure that you are ready to toss a fly in the pond. Glad you are all settled in. =)

So good to be able to interact with individuals who love fishing as much as I do, that is what I missed most during my absence. Thanks for the comment
