Blurred Lines

You’ll no doubt be excited to learn that my wife Linda and I successfully moved to a new house last weekend. Our old house was terrific (we’d been there 11 years) but with our youngest son, Jonathan, off to college this fall, we decided it was a good time to downsize. And downsize we did.
