The 2009 Celtic Fest in New Albany

It was a magical evening in New Albany last night. As if by magic, it was a damp, cloudy, chilly evening which set the perfect mood for a Celtic Festival. Hard to imagine a more perfect setting. If you missed the event or want to relive it, click this link to view photographs.

Won’t you be my neighbor?

That’s right. You could be my neighbor if you act quickly. The Charles E. Richards House, 844 Cedar Bough Place, is for sale. I’m bummed that my buddy Mary Anne Tonini is moving, but change happens and I’m excited about having a new neighbor.

Mary Anne has worked her butt off bringing this house back to where it is now. The new roof (metal shingles) is amazing. The new paint scheme, landscaping and the refinished hardwood floors are also fantastic. If you are in the market, or just thinking about jumping in the market, you owe it to yourself to come take a look at the house. Remember that the $8,000 federal tax credit is still available.

Additionally, for a nominal contribution to my beer inventory or my humidor, you could have your grass cut regularly. That’s just one of the perks of being a neighbor of Ted.

Check out her listing on Historic New For more information or to arrange a showing, call Mary Anne at 812/941-8887. You can also see the home during the New Albany Historic Home Tour on September 12. Visit Develop New for more information on the tour and how to purchase tickets.

The Bough is a pretty special place. It should be your next home.

It’s Home “Tur” Time in New Albany – Saturday, September 12

I took a recent trip deep into the Indiana interior recently. It was a fun trip, with a celebration of historic preservation at the core. The trip included a guided walking tour and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I only dozed off once, so it had to be good.

Locals in the interior kept talking about the “tur” (say the word turn, without the n). I enjoy local dialects bunches. I picked up on the “tur” thing and just can’t let it go.

Y’all can bet we got ourselves the best Home Tur yet this year. This would be the 4th Annual Home Tur. So come to New Albany and Tur it up. Tur until you drop, then Tur some more. Buy your Tur ticket at the Develop New Albany website. Or buy your Tur ticket at the Gallery on Pearl. Just please do buy a Tur ticket cause this here Tur is gonna be a good'in.

View the Home Tur homes at this link or at the Develop New Albany website.
