Not a whole heck of a lot to report, but I did promise myself I would try and post a bit more frequently.

The house is probably about 80% finished at this point. The last major thing was moving the bedrooms around and switching the beds. Donna decided to keep our older bed and move the newer one into the guestroom or as we call it, The Stoffo Suite. (An inside joke, so don't dwell on it if it makes no sense.)

We have a few minor things to do over the next week or so, as we have family & friends coming over for Thanksgiving dinner. It will be the first gathering we have in our new place and we'd like everything complete by then.

We're getting used to hearing the trains coming by, since most stop by 11:00pm with the exception of a freight train that runs through around 2:00am. After living in Brooklyn and in Connecticut on fairly busy streets it really isn't a big issue with either of us. The thing that bothers us most are the new creaky noises when we turn the heat on. Something else to get used to over time. Pretty minor annoyances when compared to having our own place and so much extra room.

Show of hands. How many of you thought of Donna and me when you heard about the Carnival ship floating without power? LOL! We both thought it was pretty funny, but did sympathize with the passengers going through it.

That's it for now. Hope you all have your change of address notices by now.
