Time Flying

The long wait is over!

When Rich Girrard took a spur-of-the-moment trip to his father's hometown of tiny Belton, Indiana, he had no idea how much his life would change.

Small Town Fireworks

July 5th, 2009

FireworksRural America rocks, and is the USA’s future! I’ve spent the vast majority of my time either in a huge city, or spots so remote there’s virtually no civilization. While I build Rich’s house, I’m for the first time, living in a place that’s somewhere in the middle. Small town America is very cool.

The fireworks at a nearby lake were awesome. Met a bunch of very friendly people. Getting up early this morning, smiling at the great time I had, I’m really thinking of selling everything in Dallas and building my own house nearby. We’ll see if that feeling stays once I’ve finished Rich’s house. If so, I think I’ll do it!

Back to work today. Time is running short. Rich will be in San Diego, from 1952 in about a week and a half. He’ll show up here from 1935 in about 6 weeks. On schedule, but still need to keep the push on to get this place done and ready for his visit. How often do you get a visitor from 74 years in the past?

I know, I know. You need a timeline. So do I. The final product of this project will include one, I promise!  :-)
