I've been away from this technology too long. Since last writing I moved from Falls Ave to N Miami St in Wabash. It's taking a minute or so to reorient myself. Meanwhile, here is a summary:
I just want to catch you up on my activities of the last few months as the pandemic continues erratically.
I was looking at my great-grandmother Walker's house last November which was up for sale. Although I put a low-ball offer in on it, I didn't expect it to be accepted. Besides it was too big (4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths). However, one day as I was looking for its status online, I stumbled over a really cute little cottage across the street from Wabash High School. (Debbie, it is the HS where your father graduated and where my mother taught art and English.) Since I really liked the place, I put in an offer, over which the owners and I dickered and finally arrived at an agreement. We closed on July 14th and I took possession the same day. My church friends got together and we got things moved within 4.5 days.
The place was built in 1952 and is just right for me - adding a spare bedroom, family room, and full bath, plus deck. It also has a gas fireplace, dishwasher, and deck, which I consider essential. These pictures are about 5 years old, so add a little age to it, less furniture, and reduce the pink. The living room will be shades of sea mist and white to match the carpet. My Chinese artifacts will be there. Following are photos.

So far I am very content trying to balance among unpacking, writing and resting. I'll write more later, probably under a different topic.
