I live within 30 miles of the hospital where I was born. We moved to the country when our first child was 10 and younger was three. Dh drove into town for years until his retirement and now we only have to leave our little "burg" for grand occasions - of which there aren't that many.. Our daughter has been all over the country with her navy husband and now they have moved back here. If only we could talk our son into getting closer, it would be perfect.

I live where I live because I've got a clear shot for at least 200 yds in all directions...

Great fields of fire, eh? That's how I'd pick a foxhole, not a home. Are you expecting an invasion?

I live in what most would call a hick town or a burg it's know as the home of the Gallo family, but it's only about 30 -40 miles from where I was born Stockton another burg I stay because it's too late now to move and my heart is here I could never move away from what keeps me going my grand babies. M y parents are buried here and I couldn't leave them now more than before. I guess you could say this is where my heart is. I remember my horror when my husband came home and said were moving I bought a drug store. I was so stunned I couldn't wrap my head around the idea for several weeks. I hated Modesto for years until the grand kids came and my parents moved here with us. then life became more the way I loved it. I think we all end up where we are meant to be If life hands us lemons??? well you know the rest. My life is my grand kids and my very dear husband as well as my DC family.

Because I live with my Mum and Step-Dad and they unfortunately decided to move in to this house. We had 2 years of hell with the neighbours, who eventually got evicted, and then we had a year with no neighbours. Now we have more neighbours from hell who think it is perfectly acceptable to blast the TV at 2am and repeatedly shout at their daughter, who must only be about 3, to shut the "F" up.
Oh how I love it here!
