Moving On

Just learned that we’ll be moving on in a couple of weeks. My time in Missouri is coming to an end. I wish I could wrap up our house and acreage and take it along – but I can’t, of course.

Yesterday, one of those larger-than-life members of the community died, a real-estate developer. His obituary was on page one of the business section above the Bear Stearns news. Here are two quotes (and I’m not making them up):

At various times during his life, he wrestled a bear, was run over by a car and got his head caught in a brush hog.

“He always wanted to shake your hand … and if you’re a woman, he wanted to give you a hug.”

I think I’ll miss this place.
