On the road again …

Driving from N.O. to Cincy was rather uneventful. We got a late start on Tuesday because the movers were loading up until about 2:30 p.m. Still we got as far as Meridian, MS.

On the second day we reached Nashville just as some Country Music Association event had filled up the local lodging capacity. All we could find was a smoking room in a Comfort Inn. As we entered the room there was a faint smell of smoke, but we quickly adapted.

We reached our objective on Thursday, Susan’s brother’s place in Dillsboro, IN. We are staying here, forty miles from Cincinnati, until our furniture arrives. It is on Wilderness Lane, a private road to a beautiful spread that includes a private lake (pond?). Harley’s wife Jascia, is on a hammock at the pond, watching son Benjamin swim in the pond as we arrive.

Friday was dedicated to checking out our new apartment and beginning to set up a new household. Best we could tell, the landlady fixed the problems we had noted in our visit last month.

Yuppies that we are, our first priorities were to line up a maid and a decorator. Next was a visit to the neighborhood Ace hardware, followed by Barnes and Noble (city maps), Linen’s and Things, and Best Buy. On Saturday we visited Lowe’s and Radio Shack in the Dillsboro area.

This afternoon we are going to a Cincy Newcomers Club meeting. We plan to be active in social and civic groups to develop our sense of belonging.

Cultural opportunities here are impressive. We subscribed to the Playhouse in the Park series. We will attend at least a couple of the Broadway series, and may attend some of the Shakespeare company’s events. Later this month we will attend the Summer Pops concert.
