Goin' to Graceland

Well, now it can be told: we're moving to Memphis. It's all happened pretty quickly, with the Best Wife Ever jetting back and forth (she's being transferred) and me stuck here on monitor duty. Everything starts tomorrow -- two days' worth of chaos, two days more driving, and (Lord willing) unloading next weekend. Regular service should resume in about a week.

Although we've lived here less than two years, I want to say a little bit about Williamsburg, Virginia. Longtime readers of this blog will remember the Great Move of '05, which seemed to take forever and got extended into such things as bar exams and job searches. Thus, it seems like we'd only recently gotten settled in here when we learned we'd be moving.

Williamsburg has been fairly good to us. We enjoyed having the Historic Area handy, anytime we wanted a nice walk. Although development took off like a rocket not long after we moved in, it did yield a nice movie theater (lessening the need to go to Newport News for movies), some good restaurants, and a new home for Comic Cubicle, my local comics shop. We got involved in church and made many close friends in what is now too short a time. We felt welcome in our neighborhood right from the start.

So thanks for everything, Williamsburg, from the Bondurants. Don't grow up too fast!

And thanks in advance, all twelve of you who are still reading, for your continued patience. See you soon!

Good luck with the move. As for the area you're moving from-- I'm moderately familiar with it. One of my brothers used to live in Newport News... he's the one who got me into comics. When I'd go visit we went over to either Hampton or Denbeigh to a comic shop where he was a regular... good times, good memories!

I hope you enjoy your new surroundings as much (if not more than) the surroundings which you've departed.

Good luck in Memphis! I only spent a couple of days there when I was living in Nashville, so I can only speak to the city as a tourist spot and not a place to live, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Hope you like barbecue!

I've lived in many cities, but I've always made my way back home to Memphis. We've got the usual big city problems, but haven't lost the small town friendliness.

Welcome home!
