Or to put into more practical terms. We put everything we own in boxes. Moved the boxes. And now we have a house full of boxes.

And we are no longer residents of New York, or Connecticut. We now belong to Pennsylvania, the Keystone state.
As we get ready to celebrate July 4 we may recall that Pennsylvania is known as the Keystone state because it was the middle colony of the original 13, and it held a key position in the economic, political and social development of the United States. Some of our most important documents were written in Pennsylvania: the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. And later, the Gettysburg address.
|Oh, what do you suppose is behind this door?|
But honestly, so far we have not experienced much of Pennsylvania. We have strolled into town several times to sample a few of the local restaurants. Earlier this week B's brother and his wife stopped by on their way home to Massachusetts from North Carolina. The four of us prowled the streets to discover a key ingredient to any top retirement destination: a good ice cream shop. The next night B and I walked down to the restored arthouse theater to see Beatriz at Dinner (an ambitious but somewhat disappointing movie).
But now it's back to reality. We're spending the long weekend unpacking boxes. What are you doing for the Fourth?
