Almost. Actually, Alex and I just reported back to McBone HQ after spending two days in Indiana, where we were house hunting in anticipation of our five-year stay in West Lafayette. By August first we will be comfortably situated here:
This was the first and only house we looked at, a lovely one-storey affair owned by a charming professor who teaches exactly the same class (composition) at Purdue in which Alex will be earning her PhD. A bizarre and fortuitous circumstance; we hit it off at once.
Alex and I extend a special thank you to Kristen Moore, who opened her home to us for two nights, a home replete with red wine and her own special recipe, Barbie-themed cupcakes.
