Back to the Future – L.A., Part Two

June 10 – TBD And so, for the next month or two we continued to straighten out the house, furnish missing items (drapes, carpets, etc.), ride our bikes and explore the changes in our neighborhood.  The first week of July found us preparing to celebrate the birthdays of Joanna, Bev, and Marty, dates signifying a […]

The Move, Part One

May 1 – June 10   We returned to Charlotte with the sale of the house and a move across the United States staring us in the face.  We were in better shape than many at this point in the process, having secured a solid offer ($5,000 over asking and no request to cover closing […]

Adventure Cycling Ragin’ Cajun Tour – Part Six
