Be It Ever So Humble…..

This has been My Place, my home for the past 39 yrs.

It is on a lovely, tree-lined, quiet street.

We brought up 2 children here, plus many pets.

We have seen many neighbors come and go.

We used to be “the kids” on the block and now

we are one of 3 of the original families left.

We considered moving last year, after retirement.

Charleston SC appealed to us, and so off we went,

on numerous jaunts from our Midwestern roots

to the southeast on home-buying searches.

Came pretty darn close…..

lovely homes, lovely area, lovely weather, lovely people – the whole package.

But when it came right down to it, we realized

we are too deeply entrenched in our neighborhood and city

to leave.

And we’re so glad for it.



  1. Cyndie,

    I just wanted to say welcome to the blogging world and also thank you for the add :)

    I look forward to reading your blog and would love to see some pictures of your little chihuahuas! You are right, it can be sad to think about everything they have gone through. However, you really can't beat the feeling you receive when you see your rescue dog making progress and when they seem happy in their new life. We are finally getting our little guy to warm up to us, and it has made me so happy to see him cuddled up next to me looking ever so peaceful. It sounds like things are going well with Mike, and I hope that continues! Taking it slow is really hard, but patience pays off.

  2. Hi Cyndie ~ welcome to blogland and have fun on your adventure!
