We arrived! I can't believe (or maybe I can) that I couldn't find my camera during the big move yesterday. Pauline Duran and I arrived a day early set up the kitchen. When we arrived there were three vans and a truck parked in the driveway and various people filling up what they could. Our new home was being looted -- at least that is what it felt like. We weren't exactly sure what was going on, but they all knew the previous owners and said that they were told they could come and take what ever they liked. We weren't sure who was going to show up next but they stripped the property down, including the hoses. They left us the garbage and a very dirty house. Pauline and I went to work and the next morning Tom, Amelia, Jean, Hal and Otis came barrelling in. What a picture to see Otis sitting in the front of the U-Haul! But no, no camera yet...Mary and Brett Pittman (Lorraine's sister) came down to great us and they stayed to help un-load the truck. It was a family affair with Mikey Pittman taking on mowing the lawn for us also.
Yeah! I found my camera this morning and what a beautiful day! The pictures are taken from the deck, and just check out those kitchen cabinets!
