Although Pearl and I enjoyed the A-Frame on Lake Sherwood
it was just too much work to keep it up so I sold it March 7,
1978 and also sold "Blue Horizon"as much as I hated to do so.
I bought a new house at 709 View Court in Mt. Horeb and
with Pearl's help moved in. There was no lawn yet nor was the
exterior trim painted, but eventually all was taken care of. I
had the lawn sodded and had McKay nursery plant trees and shrubbery
and it really is a wonderful home now. I bought just at the right
time, prices have really soared ever since. Pearl did a lot of
packing for me and we hauled a lot of things in our cars. Ted
Moll brought most of the heavy furniture. I have a lovely family
room on the ground floor where I spend most of the time when I
write, and during the week-ends when Pearl and I are together.
She loves the kitchen because it is so handy and has so much cup-
board space. We really enjoy being together. Many of our friends
tried to break us up but we ignored them and now they expect us to
be together all of the time.
Lately Pearl and I have been discussing the possibility
of selling both our houses and moving to Madison where we would
be closer to Dave and Yvonne and their family, but I don't really
believe we will leave Mt. Horeb.
