Our nephew/Greg and his family moved to Chicago in January and we were only about 50 miles from where he lives but...going to his house for a visit didn't work out. We had a great conversation with him on the phone & hope to see him next time!
I long, as does every human being,
to be at home wherever I find myself.
I think I've managed to do just that.
I've settled into my new home near Chicago,
But I had to tag Indiana, because in truth,
