Be honest. How many of you just read that title and thought, "WOO HOO! SUMMER VACATION!!!"?
Go ahead, raise your hand.
Well, come June 2010, we'll be living there.
Now, be honest. Raise your hand if you just read that statement and thought, "WOO HOO! SUMMER VACATION!!!"
Every single one of you better have your hands up. (And I don't mean maybe!)
Blanchard may be a small town consisting of: a bar/resturant, a gas station, a post office, a double wide trailer acting as the public library, and the almost infamous Blanchard Inn, but it also has this to offer:
(the view from the backyard)
Which is why we are moving. Ace was hired as the Assistant Pro on the Stoneridge Golf Course. Ironically enough, this is the same golf course where my brother Kimball was working at the time of his death. So, really, it's pretty awesome.
As time draws nearer for Ace to leave and start this new job, the more he reminds me of a little kid waiting for Christmas to hurry up and get here. He starts in March so he'll move up there and live the bachelor life (With his sister Cherlyn to keep him in check... ;) while I take on the single mother role here until Gimme finishes school at the first of June.
While Ace works on the course, he'll also be working on his PGA certification (please direct all questions regarding this procedure to him). I think that means he'll be golfing a lot.
So, with all of this new information, our calendar is open and we are now taking reservations (not that we want to put the Blanchard Inn out of business or anything, we just want friends and family to come stay with US...). Just to put in a little more incentive, (as if the double wide library isn't enough!) not only is the first green our backyard, but there is a little swimming pool and tennis courts across the street. (Oh, and I guess I could mention that Spokane, WA and Coeur d 'Alene are both within about 30-40 minutes if you want more shopping than what's available at the corner gas station.)
Don't just sit there! Get out your calendars!
p.s. if you know anyone who needs to buy or rent a house...I happen to know of a place that's available!
