Today we went to a nearby ranching town to go to our friend's 91st birthday party. 
His brother was there and he is in his 80s.  Shawn and I were wondering what the secret to their longevity is, and we joked that it was stability and bacon for breakfast.  Bill has lived in the same valley, and on the same ranch his whole life (except for military service) and told us that as a young man he planted saplings outside his kitchen window.  Those trees are now huge cottonwoods.  What must it be like to live in one place forever?
I won't ever know.  I have never lived for more than 9 years in one place (PA), and just when I thought Lincoln was going to be my home forever (8 years), we found out
we are moving to Wyoming. 
What a thrill, adventure, and whirlwind we are about to embark on.  It is going to be sad to leave, but I know we will be happy in our new home.

Two inspiring quotes for me to think about....

“All great changes are preceded by chaos.” -Deepak Chopra
“Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn

Two goofballs who are going to ensure chaos and comic relief in the next month...
