Say Hello to Joyce
August Introduction- Hi All Tri-County Friends, Most of you know that for the past year and a half, since my parents went into the nursing home, I have been living half a week at my NY house where I have been 25 years, and half at the PA house that has been in the family since 1917. A week or so ago I casually mentioned to a NY neighbor that I'd be selling that house in a YEAR or TWO. Well, talk about grape-vine. To make a long story short, within a 48 hour period I had a signed contract on the house from people who really want it whether it is for sale or not. It is in their neighborhood, next to two of their children and her sister. They  have just sold their larger house and need a smaller one, and they do not want to leave the township. They want it as is, no repairs, no painting, no hassle. I just have to get out in 60 days. My head is swimming, to say the least. It is too good an opportunity to turn down even though the timing is bad. BTW, even though my NY house in almost a hundred miles from my Sullivan Township house, the woman buying it has Sullivan Township ancestry. She and her family are already in my 75,000 person database of Sullivan Township Descendants.

So, for the next two months I'll be pretty well consumed trying to get a household full of stuff, including a 4,000 volume library, into a house that was never moved out of in the first place. At least I have a two story empty barn for temporary storage until I have the chance to build an office/library extension. This will be primarily a simplification of things, but adds a few complications as well, at least short term.  SO, to you this means fewer new pages on the site for that period. I'll do what I can, but both my mental capacity and my time are consumed. All offers of local help will be appreciated. If you have a truck, I can fill it.

I had intended to set August as Birthday Month at Tri-Counties. We all have a birthday this month. The PT Cruiser is TWO. Both the cat, Sullivan, and the Tri-Counties Site itself, are SIX years old. Can you imagine - six years this site has been growing. Enki the dog is THIRTEEN. And, I will be considerably older than all of them combined. But, with the move we will have to put that off for another year. Next year we'll celebrate the site's longevity.

There will be new pages as I can manage, but site development will have to slow during this period. With almost 7500 pages on the site, I can guarantee you, there are wonderful things already here that you have not had time to read. Make this your catch up month.

September 01 Update on the Move - So far I have packed 111 boxes of books, and the end of that task is in sight. The movers (Yes, Dimon & Bacorn) will pick up the big stuff on the 17th and I WILL survive this and get back to my life in a month or so. It will probably take the better part of a year before I find everything again. Joyce
