‘Tis Been A Most Pleasant Place

A look back at Codicote, Hertfordshire, in July 1789:

Well, a fictionalized Codicote at any rate. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s another fun, uh, “fact.” Some miles away, at Longbourn, near Meryton, a certain newly married young couple then resided. They were a Mr. and Mrs. Bennet. ๐Ÿ˜‰

So change is happening. We are moving. My posts this week, possibly into next… well, there may not be any.

We move on Thursday. Naturally we have tons to do to prepare for it. My blog, my Instagram… and even my manuscript… will have to take a back seat to filling boxes, etc.

The only thing I will say about where we are going at this point is we are moving to an English county in which we have never before lived. I have now lived in Cambridgeshire, “Middlesex” (which doesn’t technically officially exist any longer, but lots of people talk about it as if it still does), Dorset, Wiltshire, and Hertfordshire (pronounced, in case you donโ€™t know, โ€œHeartferdshurโ€). And now, next…

Incidentally, in that Instagram post I also made reference to an old song? Gather ’round kids. Time for another trip in a “time machine” – although closer in time than 1789:

Thirty-one years ago, in 1988, “Seasons Change” was a Number 1 hit in the U.S.

Have a good, wherever you are. ๐Ÿ™‚
