Really Moving In

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Tuesday, August 30, 2016,
The process of transferring goods from my Deposit house to Hyde Park started slowly with Linda and I bringing the dogs to the new place three weeks ago. We had a delay for a week but this past Saturday we began moving the heavier goods in earnest in my recently acquired Dodge minivan. Some tools, lawn equipment and clothing were packed into the car.

As many of you know Linda and I are eventually moving to Hyde Park, just north of Poughkeepsie. I've bought three houses before this, in my life, but this purchase has been troublesome. We found a house in Poughkeepsie but the hidden problems found during the Home Inspection were too numerous to ignore.
