The Cat

Good ole' Blue Doo
Blue Doo RIP
The Cat
On February 21, 2005, we sold our home in Duncanville. The home was built by my Grandfather over 30 years ago and has been in the family ever since...until now. We will ultimately move to our farm in East Texas, but not until Savanna finishes this school year. We also have a significant rennovation planned on a small brick house located on our farm land. The house is currently tenant occupied, but that will change in about 3 months.

Our plan for the house is to "blow" the roof off and add a second story covered by a gambrel barn type roof. When we are complete, it should look like a very old school dairy barn from the outside, but hopefully have a few more creature comforts inside. It will require significant manpower and we plan on exhausting every friendship we've managed to accumulate over the last 40 years.<p>

While we've been very resistant to attempt the whole blog thing, we've now decided to dive in headfirst. The day we sold our home in Duncanville, we took up residence in a dilapidated old camper, affectionately known as "blue doo". We'd made the decision to live in a camper until Savanna finishes the school year and the house at our farm is complete. Blue Doo was the intended domocile, however, we also recognized that it might be a prime time to look for a little better abode.<p>

After one week in Blue Doo, we traded for a 2003 Wildcat, more commonly known among us as "The Cat". The Cat is a little longer than Doo and significantly better equipped to handle a full-time living situation. The camper has a bunkhouse for Savanna, a master bedroom for Scott & Holly, and a living/kitchen area with a galley slideout, making ample room for a family of three. What happened to Bugsy, you may be asking. Well, she's traded her allegience to us and is now part of my parents family. She's much happier there, and in some ways, we are happy for her.<p>

As the days roll into weeks and the weeks roll into months, we'll make some stab at keeping this regularly promulgated with photos and updates of our complexly simple nomadic lifestyle. Please don't feel the need to read unless you are bored and/or curious.
