Catching up on the CrAzInEsS !!

We moved! Well, technically our move isn't complete.  We moved out of our old house, but aren't in a new house yet.  All our stuff is in storage until we have a new place to move into.  So, where are we?  We are up at our cabin in West Virginia.  Not Virginia...West Virginia.  It drives me bonkers when people call it Virginia.  It's like calling South Carolina, North Carolina.  Different states people!  Sorry, I digressed.  This week, I'm up visiting in Indiana while Will and the pups are enjoying cabin life.
