My two favorite guys.
We've totally moved in to the new digs. It's spacious and comfortable but needs a few tweaks. The front door needs painting, the fireplace is getting a facelift, the grey lavender wall color will be replaced with a warm beige ..... and the list goes on.
Mike and Jenna drove over and helped tremendously. This house was wired for a state of the art sound, TV, electronic system, circa 2008. The equipment even has it's own little room. The previous owner loved toys and we think he invested A LOT in this extremely complex system, requiring frequent house calls by the company. The wife said she couldn't figure it out and had to rely on him to turn on the TV or change a channel....they left 5 TV's attached to walls. Since it is all Microsoft equip, our first born and talented Microsoft employee spent many hours with his able assistant attempting to understand and make the system operable. They succeeded and the learning curve is becoming less daunting. I suspect that in today's world, all those X Boxes and cables would be replaced with one computer.
Friends of Mike and Jenna's were in the area so we all met up for some time in the hills. Here, we are airing-down the tires before heading out. This makes a big difference in the comfort level....from a jarring jangling ride to a bouncy rolling climb.
Up above Red Mountain and down the other side to have lunch in Silverton.
The aspen are changing rapidly and full color will be showing up before we leave. We'll get out once more time to capture the wonder of it all.
Plans, as of today, will be to leave on the !st and head to Florida. We'll stop in SC for the annual RV maintenance and then hit the ground running to get the house ready FOR SALE. We'll let the realtors handle it this time.
Meanwhile, we're putting on our boots and hats and heading to a barn dance tonight....yee haw !!
