thinking about getting off the water, a little closer to town & either getting a small place or building one. depending on our portability next fall, we might wander south to brownsville or somewhere... mom wintered in harlingen so i know that area. (beginning to feel the walls here & winter is leaning on us.)

My sister lives in Mission, Texas, for six months of the year, in one of those senior citizen parks. I just paid her a visit week before last, and I can see why anyone would want to live there in winter. There's always something to do, the weather in February is gorgeous, and I LOVE those grapefruits. I like Texas people, too; they seem to be extra-friendly and giving, as a general rule. Maybe I've just been fortunate to have met the right ones.

Spent a week in the Corpus Christi area a few years ago. Seems like every other person we met was originally from Missouri ???

Well, DC i just got home a while ago( another 500 miles looking at places and i,ll tell you something im sure you already know, Theres no place like home,i just can,t belive how some folks set things up, here i have managed over the years to work the bugs out of most things and continually look for ways to improve and make life easier, sure it gets cold an snowy here , but in the bannna belt i was at today it looks like they have just learned to make do, couldn,t belive what i was seeing, i know one thing now if i do move there i,ll be buying raw land and starting from the beginning ,im not paying somebody a quater million dollars, for a house ,barn, etc, that will take me another ten years and a hundred grand to get in shape, sure was dissapointed , but i guess that s the way it is, now i know why they want to move anyway , but im asking myself WHY DO I?

Know what you mean DC,I'm thinking about Fl, the cold is really ruff on these old bones,but since i've lived here all my life it will be hard for me to go anywhere but Jenny can relocate and not bother her a bit. James

I lived in Brownsville about 30 years ago and really loved it. Although it has built up quite a bit since then. Padre Island was just that an island but has really turned into a resort area. I did learn Spanish though, goodness me if I couldn't have talked all the time, LOL. Found the weather quite a bit better than when we moved to Houston. Good luck with whatever your plans are....I know it is a big step but I am glad that Ennis and I took that step when we moved here....we didn't consider it selling out we considered it "Moving On Up" not to the big times though...

Well I do think so that you did "move on up" Mrs. Ei. You are now very way up on Mount Ozark. It is most fortunate that Mrs. Ei did move to the mountian than that the mountian did had to move to Mrs. Ei yes I do think so.

Rajah what is you doing here, where is Arnold? Did you leave him alone with S&S...

Anyway thank you for opening my eyes, yes we did move on up the mountain in fact when we try punching holes for fence posts we realize we are on top of the dang thing the mountain not the fence post.

You do know Mrs. Ei that you would be even more aware of how high on the hog( Joke) mountian you where living if you did had to peddel your Cybercycle up there to the top all the way. It is most exhausting. As yourself are very aware what Rajah goes up of Rajah must eventually come down the other side of. This is where the glassware first got broken. The road were whindey and most steeply inclined downward. At the top I did welcome the oppertunity to not peddel hard and then it became overwelming as the cybercycle did accelerate to a frightening rate of speed. It was there that I did apply the coaster brake very strongly and the chain did break. Fortunatly I did run straight into a very big rock and it did stop me from going over the edge. Much Cargo was dammaged though.

First off Rajah explain this remark to Arnold, "high on the hog( Joke) mountian". plus what you were really trying to say in your post was you weren't watching where you was a going and you plowed into the mountain and broke the glasses......

hey rajah, while yu're here ---- what's the dowry struggle in india? these people getting rid of their brides?

Goodness golly Mr. Deadcarp, I do think so that you must be from Back home aswell and have just chosen a new name since moving here. The people that are so familiar with our very goings on are most few indeed. I am trusting that your very Fatherinlaw did provide nicely for yourself as my own fatherinlaw did for myself. It does make a more harmonious family you do know.

no, suzn & i did things western i guess. we were both divorced when we met, her ex still thought he owned her so i took her along out west. and left him with a $400 phone bill, just to make him think. and to show him he wasn't in charge anymore. :) we lived together 4 years and got married. we didn't get anything from her folks at the time but when her dad passed away she got a lake cabin & lots which we have now passed on to the kids.

my buddy dr thomas was from india, and his wife anna was chosen for him as a child. they now live in california & got on very well. he also told me nobody does sport fishing in india - it's somebody's job. :)
