Well gentle readers, it’s time for a new chapter of the Manor. Mrs. Manor and I have discharged all the duties of our teaching, and this week, will leave the Manor in Texas for a new Manor in Wyoming. We considered having a moving company do the work for us, but they wanted in the neighborhood of $10,000 dollars for the privilege, so we said “no thanks,” and will be U-Hauling things.
It’s a bittersweet time. Our final semester of teaching was disrupted in ways none of us could have imagined. We didn’t get to make a proper goodbye to our students, and even seeing friends is difficult. Texas has been very good to us, but Wyoming is home and family, and in every way that matters—not climate—Texas and Wyoming are comfortable places for those that love liberty to reside. It will be a grand place to begin the last major chapter of our lives.
So, it’s likely I will not be able to maintain my usual one-article-per-day schedule, at least this week. With any luck, I’ll be back on schedule next week. We already arranged all utilities, including Internet access in the new Manor, but the best laid plans of mice and men…
As always, your kind patronage of this scruffy little blog is humbling and very much appreciated. This week, I have a special Memorial Day article in place of a new education article; I’ll leave last week’s article up one more week.
See you on the other side of a more than a 1000 mile move!
