John Edwards unplugged

Apparently, the Edwards campaign thinks that this is one of his finer moments:

This old house

Well, I did it. Last week, I signed a contract to buy a house. That probably means that blogging will be light to nonexistent for the next several weeks while I'm getting stuff packed up or discarded. It's not like I've been blogging at peak rate lately, anyhow.

This will be my first house, so I'm pretty excited. Living in an apartment has completely lost its appeal to me over the past year - so much so that it's hard to remember what the appeal was to begin with. I want a lawn to mow, d--n it. One that doesn't belong to someone else.

Anyway, I'm gonna start talking to mortgage people tomorrow. The home inspection is Tuesday. (It's an old house, so that's pretty important.) Closing is at the end of this month. Needless to say, I'll be pretty busy between now and getting primed for the joys of home ownership.

Wish me luck.

Happy Independence Day

Hope everyone had a good Fourth. I headed down to Ditto Landing this evening for the big fireworks show on the Tennessee River. It's the first time they've done it down there, and I hope it won't be the last. It was a great show in a beautiful location, although next year, they really need to do a better job directing traffic after everything's over.

I shouldn't complain too much, though. If there's one thing to remember on the Fourth of July, it's that the Founding Fathers and the patriots they led to victory in the Revolution endured greater hardships than most of us care to imagine in order to win our nation's independence and secure liberty for themselves and their posterity. We are forever indebted to the founding generation for that, and the least we could do in return is to make sure that the generations of Americans to come are taught to appreciate that great inheritance and to remember just how it came to be.
