Home. . . . . . .

We locked the door of our Apartment & said "Goodbye" We had been staying in Columbia, SC for the past 3 Years & 1 Month, While on Military TDY (Temporary Duty) Here at Fort Jackson, SC. . It was only supposed to be a 1 year tour... Much to our surprise when It stretched out to 3 years.. It is actually amazing how much "Stuff" you accumulate ...
We got the BigBoy Penske Truck a 26 Footer, Thinking there is no way, We'd ever fill this up..
It only took 4 of us 5 hours to fill,, Yes I said FILL up a 26 foot truck...

Izzy ...Supervised....
Izzy helped us Inspect the Truck...

& the Fun Begins..
1100 Miles & 3 days later we arrived HOME...
~ DFW ~
(Dallas/Fort Worth)
Well, actually the FW Part of it,,,
Our home sat vacant for the past 3 years,,,
We think we could feel it hug us, when we opened the door...

I want to Thank all of our Family Members..
Friends, Twitter & Facebook Peeps,
for making that grueling drive more bearable
with your jokes, updates & Prayers!

I hope you have settled now in your old/new place.
For someone who has moved more than 7 times in the last 3 decades I am familiar with accumulated junk. Except it is not junk until you actually need to move. I dare anyone to get rid of that junk before they actually are forced to. It is considered the stuff that memories are made of.

So enjoy and accumulate new junk that you hopefully get to keep this time.
