You guys have already seen some of what it took to get Bill and me ready to move to Portland, Oregon. Then, moving ate my life, leaving me without time and energy to post here. But, it turns out, the photos of the process document it perfectly.
First, pick up some joy in a box.
Keep practicing car riding with the dogs.
Fill a flask with geographically appropriate whiskey, then promptly forget to pack it.
Find reassurance in the oddest places.
Find a moment to look in a rear-view mirror.
Go to the last day of work and share the best beers with the best people.
Make some tea even though there’s no strainer at work anymore.
Try to take my boss & very good friend with me.
Gather “just in case” cash in the money clip inherited from my grandfather. Then stash it far from the wallet.
Organize the stuff that’s riding with me & the dogs while drinking a beer that just couldn’t fit in the luggage.
Make sure “The Shark” is actually a shark.
Give Bill one more chance to pet pups before we all leave.
Get the fuck on the road.
