Alea iacta est. The die is cast.We've gotten an offer on Chez Borepatch. While we're taking a haircut (those of you who've met me know that this is A Bad Thing), we're not taking a haircut so bad as to stop our Drang Nach Suden strategy. December should see us in the vicinity of Roswell, Georgia. Maybe even snooty East Cobb.

If anyone has a recommendation for a Gun Store that you like in those parts - one with people you trust and like doing repeat business with - I'd be mighty appreciative for any recommendations.
But the kids are now having to deal with this reality as reality, not as potentiality. Leaving their friends behind is hard, especially to #2 Son. We moved here when he was five, and so this house is the only one he's really known. It's the House That Built Him.
I hope that in time he realizes that the friends you leave behind - those that are real friends - are never really left behind.
What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.
