Getting settled in our new Kentucky home

I’ll never move again!

That’s what I said the last time my family and I loaded up everything we own and relocated to a new town. That was 15 years ago, and we made that move from outside Washington, D.C., to Washington County, Kentucky. Well, this past week, I made a liar of myself. But that’s OK. It was a good thing.

As of this week, my family has now settled into the home we have purchased here in Danville. Everything has been moved, although there are still boxes – many, many boxes – to be unpacked. Things are still being put in their proper place, and we are still getting settled in, but it’s been a great experience so far.

While we are Kentucky natives, my wife Betsy and I, along with our son, Michael, have lived in Springfield for the past 15 years. We always made regular trips to Danville, whether it was for a meal, a little shopping, a track meet at Centre College (our son was on the team at Georgetown College), or one of our favorite outings, a visit to Pioneer Playhouse. We’ve seen many shows there, and Betsy and I look forward to seeing many more, especially when life gets back to “normal” following the changes brought on by COVID-19. We’ve also seen more than a couple of football and basketball games here, and we can’t wait for those to get back in action, too.

We will continue to be present in the community, and much more so now that we live here, and we look forward to getting to meet more and more of our new neighbors here in Danville and Boyle County. We’ve already discovered a little bit about what a wonderful community we now live in, and we know there are some wonderful people who make it such a great place.

If you see us out in public, or if you are passing by The Advocate-Messenger and just want to stop in and say hello, or give me a call or an email, that would be great. Betsy and I never meet a stranger!
