We now have a place to go after our home closes escrow. Here is a picture of us in front of the fireplace and another picture of my lady on the deck at the rear of the house.(Do we look happy?) Our new home is located near Spokane and is on almost 5 acres. The home is brand new and there is no landscaping so we will have plenty to do. We have plenty of ideas, now we will see if there is enough money to be able to create what we have in our minds. We will be making the move in the middle of July. Imagine driving from Southern California to Spokane Washington in a 20 foot motor home with 4 cats that do not like to travel. I can hardly wait..... We are very excited to be able to make this move. We have always talked about where we would like to retire to when the time came and this place seems to meet all of the criteria. We are near water and forest (Oh yeah there are over 20 golf courses in the area as well) and we were able to get 5 acres of good workable land. We will get the opportunity to see if we can make it as "mini farmers". There are some things I will miss about Southern Cal but there are a lot of things I will be glad to leave behind. We look forward to finding a new church home there as well as making a whole lot of new friends.
