And I Wrote This Book.

New Chapter

Nearly four years ago, it was time for a change. So after nineteen years in the San Francisco Bay Area, I transferred my life to small town Chico. Steven and Mojo welcomed me into their home. Steven was a great roommate. Mojo was a brat. That feline never left me alone. Damn, I miss him. See, Steven relocated to live with his girlfriend in Texas. He handed Mojo over to a relative, so Mojo and I said "goodbye." I love that he's waving at the camera here!
Tomorrow, I'll finish my move. I'm relocating across town. My new place is much more spacious. It's been stressful, but George is around to lift my spirits and lend a hand. [Yeah, we're still dating, five weeks and counting.]

"So you're going to work in the blog-oh-sphere?" George often asks, with extra emphasis on the "oh". He tells me he doesn't know how the blog-oh-sphere thing works, and that perhaps I'll show him sometime. "Sure, I'll show you the blog-oh-sphere sometime," I tell George.

In the meantime, since George isn't curious enough to have found my blog, I'm going to post some photos of him.
Here's George driving to Lake Tahoe - this gorgeous body of water bordering California and Nevada.
We traveled to Tahoe over Thanksgiving weekend, and there was snow. So we stayed warm by drinking coffee...

and eating and eating and eating and...
doing other things.
You weren't expecting pictures of the other things. Were you?

Well, my friends, I best get rest.

Be well. Stay warm.
Keep a smile, and I'll be back when I'm settled in at my new home.

  2. Happiness and luck on your new crosstown digs. We spent a year in Chico, 1970, and found it friendly and full of wonderful places to take walks (Bidwell Park, etc.)but not generous with employment back then. That's doubtless changed as the town grew. Lived on Laburnum St. and not much was built up beyond that. Best wishes.

  3. I'm so glad you're staying in Chico with Georgie, who's got a nice cuddly clasp. Your hand is much prettier, of course! ;)

  5. Woot Woot!! Now I can track you and George down by doing some major investigative work…nah, sounds like too much work for the likes of me. I'm so glad you and your squeeze are still an item. Go You!!

    Best of luck with your move and hugs to Mojo in his neck of the woods.

  10. I love Chico! Between that and medical marijuana being legal, I'm super jealous of your living situation. Good luck with the move and hope the good times continue with George.

  17. He has nice... hands.

    Hahahaha. A face shot might've been nice. Would that have been oversharing?

    I'm so happy that you've met someone whose company you enjoy. Maybe, just maybe, he's "the one." Please tell me I didn't jinx anything by writing that down...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aw, I like the hand holding picture. Does a heart good to see romance in bloom. :) I like the water picture too, very pretty! And lol at the kitty waving. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your post made me think of the closing line for the latest 'Major Crimes.'

    'That chick hates change.'

    But you're embracing it. Yeah! :)

  22. Mojo is very luck our Jazz - except that Jazz waves with his pointy bits on display.
    Loving what we have seen of George - and you.
    Big smiles and happy settling...

  23. So happy for you and George! What a romantic weekend. :)

    He is helping you move? Be still my beating heart- that beats the hell out of roses. Did you swoon? I hope you swooned.

  24. I guess you're going from one Mojo to another...

    ReplyDelete
  27. best of luck with the move!! :) and what a beautiful kitty.

  28. I thank you for not sharing the photos of the "other" things. The hand photo is cute. It's a good thing you don't have "man hands" or George would be outta there! (Or was that Seinfeld? It's been a while since I've seen that episode.)

    Good luck with the rest of your move!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Is your George a hand model too? Lake Tahoe looks beautiful! Good luck with the rest of your move!

  30. Ah that's so lovely Robyn. I'm so happy for you. No one deserves it more than you.

    Also great that youve changed digs. Hopefully much more pleasant this time around.

    Love you!
    xo er, sorry George, I mean, yeah, nice one mate...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Other things! Other things! I want pictures of the other things! ;) glad you're happy, Robyn!

    ReplyDelete
  33. So much awesomeness in one post, and so much to be happy about. But hey, until you post more than just two hands per picture I'm not gonna be convinced of George's authenticity! You could just be pulling one of these over on us!

    The fake hand selfie

    (I kid. I wish you much happiness in this new location!)

  41. Wow! So is George any relation to Cousin Itt?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Best of luck with the move and...um, other things.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thank you, dear Pat.

    Geo, I didn't know you lived here. Yeah, not much has changed in terms of the employment scene.

    Pickleope, yes, the term "medical marijuana" is used rather loosely around here too.

    Yes, Pat, it's almost my record.

    I appreciate you all and thanks for your patience. I'll be making rounds soon. Getting settled in and all...Robin, I do well to jinx my own situations, no worries.

    BnB, LOVE the link of the deceitful selfie.

    Al, Al, Al, what did I miss? miss? miss? Julie made a funny that I didn't pick up on?

    Mitchell, I'm not sure. It's possible. I always thought cousin It was a bit creepy, but a fine actor.

    Stay warm and safe, friends. xo

  46. I've heard Lake Tahoe mentioned a few times, but I'd never seen it. even in photos.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Ha! Sometimes I get so confused. I didn't mean Cousin Itt. I mean Thing!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hey Robyn,

    As you might recall, I have been to Chico. I was a bit sad because they didn't have a parade for me.

    I've been to Lake Tahoe and I love it. I also found at that Bonanza was filmed nearby.

    Wishing you a wonderful adventure in your moving experience. I know I'm still trying to adjust to my new life on so many levels.

    Take care, dear Robyn.

    Gary :) x
