The Wizard Is Waiting

We're off to see the...well, not really, but packed boxes are beginning to sprout here and there like lollipops!

Sorry, we haven't posted in awhile. Mom Julie has been so busy since she arrived home last weekend from a trip back to Delmarva. Talking about hitting all three states! She's been looking at new places for us to live in Maryland (Salisbury), Delaware and Virginia (Lynchburg).

Here are pics she took. None of houses, too many to share.

Didn't notice until I biggyfied that the mockingbird has only one leg.

This is the Zwaanendael Museum in Lewes, Delaware

It almost looks like the building has whiskers!!
Zwaanendael is Dutch for "Valley (or Dale) of Swans."

Here's pic of a wind turbine there, too.

I don't think the whooshing noise disturbs these neighbors!

In Lynchburg, VA, this is a skyway for students going to and from the university for access to restaurants, shops, etc.

Would you believe she took this while driving? Naughty, naughty!!
Tom, the light turned green just as I snapped it, my little friend..

Yikes! You scared me!

We'll be leaving Maine at some point, we just don't know when. It could very well be next spring at the rate we're going as we get our home here ready to sell with sprucing up the gardens, sanding the deck and chasing clutter.

Meanwhile, Mom Julie'll be working at the local catalog company for the holidays (like Jerry in my book). That'll take us into February when the season tapers off. Of course, the second book in the series is still waiting in the wings. Between you and me, I wish she would stop persnicketying around over every little phrase and word. She says it makes the story flow better. I say just hurry the hell up and get it done!! (I did like it, though, when she made up old Father Jack's favorite wine and cheese place, calling it the BeCheeses :)

Have a good weekend, furriends!


Tom & Mom Julie

we didn't know you was plannin' to move. mom says the packin' alone makes her say no more. :)

~*Connie*~ said...

Leave Maine?!?! :( (but don't think I haven't thought about it as I shiver my tushie off in the winter time)

Brian said...

You are moving? I hope you leave a forwarding address!

Maine Kitties said...

Have a safe move! I need a change myself, but more needed in career than location! :)

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're glad Julie's back and hope she found something she likes...or at least has decided where to focus the search!

Happy weekend to you all. :-)

The Furries of Whisppy said...

We had no idea you were contemplating moving! We hope you find the house that you will make into a beautiful home soon. Have a great weekend!

meowmeowmans said...

Thanks for the update, friends! We've been thinking of you, and wondering how you were doing, and how all that moving stuff was going.

We can hardly wait to read your next book! :)

Big hugs to you all!

Prancer Pie said...

We is movin to our new place this winter and this makes the Mommy send lots of pawsitive thoughts and sympathy to your Mommy!

ABBY said...

UH OH not the "M" word.
We haven't ever moved, but we hear that is a word that shouldn't be in a kitty vocabulary.


Mr. Pip said...

Moving is so hard! I wish you luck and I am sure your house will sell quickly. Why are you leaving Maine? My assistant says it's beautiful!

Your pal, Pip

The Island Cats said...

Wow, we didn't know you were going to move, either! We've never moved ourselves, but our mom says it's a lot of work! We wish you the best!!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Wow, moving is a huge deal! We hope all the kitties do well on the move! It'll be a great adventure! Good luck on finding your home!

Sparkle said...

The last time we moved (the only time my human has moved since I've lived here), it was a big three blocks away! I can't imagine moving to another state. I guess my human's boyfriend is good for something - she says if he wasn't here, she would move to New York, all the way on the other coast!

Father Tom said...

This will be Mom Julie's 16th and FINAL move. Moving before prompted by her father's military obligations and then taking jobs all over the country for her career.

I know, whew!!

We just take things one day at a time. This move coming up is permanent, with our eyes on a retirement spot for her and a place where we can really kick back. :)

Fisher and Staff said...

We move a lot. That's just what we do. My staff woman loves to move, and we only rent - so it is a lot easier. I have to tell you, though, it is the strangest hobby I have ever heard of!

Tamago said...

Oh you are moving! Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, I think it's very nice around there. I hope you find the perfect place for you!

Shaggy and Scout said...

Fr. Jacks wine & cheese place name is great! Just a tantalizing morsel in the wait for the next book!
Maybe the mockingbird was hot standing on that light fixture so he just imitated a flamingo and stood on one leg?

Old Kitty said...

Oh lovely Tom!! Mum Julie is busy, busy, busy!! Awwwww!! Me and Charlie wish her all the best with her book!! Yay!!! We hope you find a great place to call home!!! Take care

The Cat From Hell said...

Ho Guys1
me LOVES moving1 All those boxes! But for mes, everytime the pawrnts moved, our Home never changed!

Marg said...

We did not know it either that you were moving. Sure hope it all goes well for you. Glad to hear that it is going to be permanent. I think sometimes it is so hard to move. Take care.

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

Maine---sound so romantic, my human Tommy says. I can't wait to hear where you guys find to put the pays and kick on back...and the photos--I like the Delaware picture and my human blubbered over the sleepin' kitty... :)

sagechronicles said...

We lived a long time ago in Snow Hill...not far from Salisbury. Just be careful, Tom, you don't get packed in one of those boxes. I know how your kind loves those things. Me? Not so much.

Your doggy pal, Sage

Father Tom said...

Sage!! Now you're in, my.

We never do know where we're going to land, do we??


Oui Oui said...

Good luck with your move! Just between us, Maryland is better than the other places. We were all born and raised (and still living) there!
