He'll be here later this week..the misfortune is that he can't be away for the length of time expected. We expect a week or two difference between us at either end of taking residence, one of us opening, the other closing each place. The Summer is definitely a northern preference for both of us but I prefer the late Spring and early Fall as well. In addition, those are the periods when the house needs the most attention. I came home to a jungle in the Spring. Growth began earlier than usual and our maintenance company hadn't begun their season. In the Fall, I don't leave until the last of the leaves from my oaks has fallen and been cleaned up. Last Fall I was held back because the tree trimmer, booked in the Summer, didn't show up when expected. There were large limbs to be cut back that were over my neighbor's yard and I felt I needed to be here in the event of a mishap. Then there is the problem that things that I used to handle myself, now require a younger and more agile person. I seem to injure myself every time I try.
