My family and I have had quite the adventure this past few months. We had been planning our move to the North East coast of Florida for many years. Our son was settled in at the University of Central Florida and we put the Omaha house up for sale in mid February. It sold in a couple of days and we moved out on March 20th, intending to set off for Florida on March 23rd. However, some pesky virus decided to scupper everything and we ended up staying in Omaha with friends and then an Airbnb. Our son had to move out of his college dorm  and went to stay with some friends in Tallahassee. We stayed in Omaha until our friends in Tallahassee got inundated with family and asked if we could move our son out.

What we did was pack up and head to Palm Coast, Florida in early May intending to buy a house pretty quickly, and we decided to stay another Airbnb. House hunting was tough, but we eventually found what we (she) wanted. We finally closed on the house today and we have the keys. Now all we have to do is wait for the movers to ship our stuff from Omaha. We were told today that it is on it's way and will be with us in 7-9 days.

Where we are is a really nice part of Florida, not too many d****eads and the virus has not taken hold as it has in other parts of this state. To say that I have been pissed off and depressed during this period is putting it mildly, and watching our idiot in chief basically endorse the deaths of over 100,000 people would be enough to drive most people mad or to seek solace in a bottle. My wife has been a rock for me and I am so grateful to have her in my life. Our son has also been fantastic and showed a level of maturity way beyond his 19 years.

Hopefully, things get a little better in the coming weeks and the move goes OK. Moving to a different state comes with all kinds of hurdles and administrative requirements. We can finally get drivers licenses and tax our vehicles to become legal residents of the state of Florida.

I know that many of you have been through things in recent months that have been a lot worse, and I hope that you all are as safe as you can be. 

Today was a good day for Liverpool fans all over the world, and it gave me , and,  I imagine, many others, the chance to smile and put some of the s***e that is going on to one side.

Stay safe and YNWA.

Going through a box of indentures, deeds and bills to find some of them relate to Ian Dury's grandfather, a land owner from Donegal and also some stuff from where his mother lived.
