March 31--one year in the purple house! Yippee!

(purple house, home of Mr and Mrs Potsblog and Brown Trout Pottery)
13 months ago on Feb 28 we closed our house in New Hampshire and drove Uhaul's biggest truck, plus 3 dogs and 2 cats west to New York and unloaded it all at my parents and stayed in their barn until we found and bought and moved into the purple house, near Ithaca, on March 31. It has been a heck of a year. We are now 2 dogs and 2 cats with Petey's ghost guarding the back yard, Mrs Potsblog is gainfully and overemployed in glorious and rewarding work, I have the best studio on earth and business keeps me hopping, we have met MANY of the bloggers and visitors to this blog this past year, and I have been on TV. Doing pretty good.

I had a visual image of myself, on a road trip, and coming to a screeching halt at the purple house, thinking, "I know that house. Where do I know that house from?"

Presumably, if I were actually on a road trip there, I'd give you a heads up and maybe even get actual directions to the purple house.

Congratulations to you and Mrs. P on your house anniversary!

purple had something to do with royalty in ancient Rome, that's it!

This is definitely the makings of some children's book starring your dead cat:

I lived in the house
Where I once chased a mouse
Right into a pot
Where Gary lived

He got stuck in the lid
And he hid and he hid
Until Maude found a broom
At Gary's house

So the mouse ran away
But I'm here to stay
In the gardens out back
Of Garys house...

you should see the cheeky critters: deer and woodchucks and red squirrels all hang around in that spot, and Petey's ghost is kept quite busy chasing them off

"Loaded up the truck and we moved to Bever...New York!"

You have been truly blessed! What a happy move and pretty house! Cheers to Year 1 and to the coming Year 2!
