We left Kev and Val in New York.


It’s been more than a week since we left New York and our friends. We U-Hauled to Ohio where we left our books and bought a Mitsubishi car. We left my family in Ohio with their still un-opened gifts and left-over Christmas cookies and cheesecakes. We left our jobs and apartment and our consistently hectic life and traded it in on a massive honeymoon suite ($49.95) at the Roadway Inn in Eau Claire, Wisconsin just a couple hours from Kevin Mast’s hometown.

Right now we’re in Sioux Lookout, Ontario catching up on odds and ends and Jennifer’s family. I’m trying not to be allergic to the family cat Boswell, and Jennifer is trying to find us a place to live in San Francisco. In between these fun tasks, we play games and I try to get reactions from Jennifer by insulting her and looking at her cards.

We’re sleeping nine or ten lethargic hours a day and I never even dream of staying up all night. The granola we eat in the morning is not the same granola we used to eat in New York, but it’s not bad (and there are little frozen blueberries). Driving a dark red family car whenever we want makes us feel like we are living too well, but that’s not a bad feeling either.

We didn’t cry when we left New York. Maybe we should have, but we didn't.

Did Boswell the cat get its name from a certain Adventures in Odyssey episode?

Yes, he did! We call him Bozzy for short. Merle always laughs at that story. Especially when the owner talks to her cat like a baby. I do wish he wouldn't create allergies for Darren though!-Edith
