We'll I have been read'in Country Life for some time know and never have posted anything. Figured it was about time I said something. I'm living in the big city dreaming of being back in the country. I was reading Mike's post about being ODD, I don't belive that he is so ODD. I'm from Choctaw/Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma,I do the best i can to keep up with indian heritage. My wife says If i can hold on a few more years till she retire's we can go back to Okla.
We rased 5 kids the youngest is 16 so i've already started packing his bags.The last one didn't like the rule's of the house so she dicided it was time to go.
I live in one of these neighborhoods where you got to get permission to do anything to your place. I'm finding more and more i just ain't got much use for the city and all these crazy people.
Just wanted to let y'all know that reading kountry Life helps keep me sane while im living here.It's giving me some good info,laughs,and just good reading.
I also wanted to say good luck to scooterhead,I quit in February after 30 years. I just felt it was time and i was ready.
Thanks for your time,the wife has breakfast on the table so i guess i better go feed my face.

Know You'll enjoy the board and I would strongly advise You maintain absolute faith in any and all statements made by the trustworthy Sages who from time to time write about things which might on the surface seem a little questionable.

Should You at anytime feel an urge to persue the factuality of such discourse feel free,however I would point out that such research will only serve to prove the absolute truthfullness of each and ever statement. I/We only ask You adhere to the simple fact that "truth realy is stranger than fiction". Above all, do not waste time and energy researching any "DELETED" subjects,just accept at face value and remember if all else fails You can speak to Cowboy Joe Our resident "SHRINK" ,"fees small,payable check,cash, money order or credit card."

Well I gotta tell ya, I normally don't answer posts like this one. You really hit a soft spot with me, I waited 15 years to move back on my family farm. If you really want it do whats best for the younguns, then get the he!! out of Dodge.

A customer of ours, owns a business in eastern New Jersey, due to the kind of kids that his daughter is associating with, he is putting a new president in charge, and moving his family to rural Pennsylvania.

If you want it bad enough, even a tar paper shack in the woods will beat a fancy penthouse in the city.

Hang in there and hold on until your day comes, then come see us country hicks and kick back and enjoy....

Good morning, my actual handle is LazyHorse, but being lazy I've shortened it to just the LH. I'm of mixed Choctaw and German ancestry myself, never seen any of the reservations though, lived in rural east central IN my entire life. Welcome aboard and hope you enjoy these forums as much as I do.

After spending my entire lifetime here in Okla. with the exception of a couple years back in the late 60's I can certainly underestand why one would feel odd or out of place any where else. Sounds to me like it is time for you all to come on home and start enjoying the best of life instead of dealing with the insanity of big city madness. We will keep the latch string out for you. You sound just like the kind of folks we nee more of here in God's Country.

Glad you stopped by and left a post. I remember the days well of living in the city. We would even get notices when we had grass growing in the cracks of the driveway. In fact when we first moved to the country and Dennis was burning trash, when he burned some of the grass under the fire barrel and I got upset, than the light went on and I remembered it was okay we are leading our life and not being told how to live it. We just follow the golden rule and in the country it has worked so far.

When we finally decided that it was time to live our country dream we were very fortunate that in two years everything clicked. Thanks to God, the internet, and planning, planning, planning.

We have been country now for about six months and I keep waiting to wake up and find out it was all a dream. Sure we have ups and downs but from joining this site there are times that our "downs" are ups to some people.

So just keep planning, I think keeping that dream alive was what helped Dennis and I during the tough "city" life. Too many people, too many killings, too much smog, traffic, inconsideration etc. Better stop because city people reading this will get depressed.

Good luck and keep posting!!!

Maybe they fbi's saw his pantlegs rolled up when he was listening to the political types, that would be worse than any patching that needs doing I think.
