We have sold our home on the lake in eastern Louisiana, and will be moving to south Louisiana shortly after Thanksgiving.
It has been an enjoyable 10 years living in the peaceful quite of this extremely rural area, just a tad north of Saint Joseph, LA. However, there are few medical facilities and even less in the way of shopping. It is not uncommon for us to drive 120 to 150 miles, round-trip, to stock up on a couple of weeks of groceries.
All of our children and grandchildren live hundreds of miles away. With work and weekend duties with their children, it's sometimes months before we see any of them.
So, we've decided to move a tad closer, and to a more convenient location for us to visit together more often. We're moving to Sunset, a small town in south Louisiana, north of I-10 and west of I-49. Doesn't that sound like an appropriate place name for a pair of "senior citizens" to live out the remainder of their lives?
As a result, and because no one has taken me up on my standing offer to guest edit, Coffey Call blogs will be few and far between until after the first of the year. I do have a few more blogs that I need to publish before we move, and hope to get them out shortly.
