The move from Chapel Hill to Leland was, at the time a good one. Dad got to stay with the same employer he was with for many years and we were able to live where he worked. Things were good and we were settling into our routine, but then dad caught wind of an opportunity that was hard to pass up.
Long story short, Blame Game Builders ( Corporate motto: "If there's a corner to cut, we've got the saw!") and their "It is what it is" philosophy were the impetus behind dad's decision to cut all ties and move on. Long after the construction dust settles in a few months it would be dad's responsibility to maintain the finished product, which would surely take what's left of his hair and nudge him to an early grave (not to mention drive mom bananas with his incessant bitching).
So anyway, a lot has happened in the past few weeks. We're now actually in Wilmington, which means mom and dad are even closer to the beach. We've found an apartment conveniently only a few minutes from dad's new job, and mom's been working real hard getting everything all settled.
Since my last post dad's daughter sent us a silly new photo of Fifi.
