What happened to June?

Another month has just flown by. Coming up on the end of June and it seems like it just started.  Tom and I have been very busy at our new home. It is interesting to note that although we have owned this place for about 12 years, we have never really lived here. It is a double wide mobile home that we bought when the kids were going to college. After looking at the cost of dorm and apartment housing, it was just lots cheaper to buy this and let the kids live here. Over the past decade it has been home to Jennifer and Kimberly several times. It has been empty for the past 2 years and when this retirement thing came up it just made sense to move into it. We are closer to Tammy and 3 of our grandkids and it will, when we get finished redoing stuff, be much lower upkeep than the house.

Kimberly and Julius worked really hard cleaning, painting, supervising workers getting it ready to move in and we have finally gotten just about everything put away. Our next big project is to re-build the back deck. After all these years, the boards have taken a beating. Now they are cracked, split and just plain dangerous. So, we are doing that the weekend of July 16th. But before that we deserve a treat...

Las Vegas here we come! Our bestest friends, Gary and Lora Flemming, who are living in Korea, are in LAS for some kind of convention or something.  We will fly there on the 30th for a week to see them, gamble a little and probably play a lot of pinocle. We just can't wait!

The house in Katy is still not sold. If you are a praying person, we sure could use some. We want to get on the road, but really can't do it until we no longer have the house expenses. If you are thinking of moving to Houston, give me a call .

God bless you all and I hope you keep following the Traills.
