a postcard from Putnam County, USA

[The view from my kitchen window.]

I now live in Cookeville, Tennessee!  My internet connection is spotty but will be worked out soon.  Some facts about my new home:
  • My apartment is next door to an abandoned house, and next to that is a small and overgrown cemetery.
  • Early in the morning I can hear a rooster crow; some afternoons, I hear what I am guessing is a donkey braying.
  • I live down a state road a couple miles from the University.  At night it is so dark I can't see the cars parked below my apartment.
  • A little further down the state road is a pasture of cows belonging to the school's Agriculture Department, as well as a field of sheep, and lots of barns and farmland.  Also: a This n' That Store and a biker bar that allegedly doubles as a bike shop.
In short: Cookeville is wonderful!  I am done with city living for the foreseeable future, and couldn't be happier.  Now, to get my sewing area set up...
