Short note to share the news that I am moving -- to a new employer and city.

The position is a fit with my commercial banking skills and keeps me in the financial services industry, where I have worked since 1994.

The best part? A welcome move to the South.

I will take up residence in southern Virginia. While it’s not Alabama or Texas, it gets me into a more moderate climate and longer boating season.

Already scoped out Lake Anna as my place to play and have my eye on living in the town of Ashland.

I start the Monday after Thanksgiving. Family will follow, after finding a permanent home.

Might have to change my name. Jim Bob? Dusty? Porter? Willie?
