Welcome Aprille! I live in Georgia, have all my life, and I have a wonderful hubby of 14 years, and a sweet girl of 8 years old, 2 old cats (14), a mouse, an iguana of 10 years, and a 3 year old border colle. Used to have a lot of fish, sold all my tanks, not doing that anymore. My husbad nd I long and yearn for our own space of country, and in a couple of years we will be moving to it, wherever it is. I am a southern country girl, and love being so.

I live in what most people think is northern NH but it's really more central. Are you "above the notches"? Ping me an email if you like.

Howdy, Aprille!!!

I turned 49 last week (grumble), am married with two step kids, 21 and 24. We have a little farm in upstate New York with 3 dogs, 3 cats, 3 horses, 4 goats and a bunch of chickens. My wife and I both work for the New York State Dept. of Health, but we're trying to get our farm going so we can quit and become full time farmers. We already have a little egg business going. We supply eggs to 2 health food stores and lots of private customers. Our goal is to also become a goat dairy. We have Nubians, and are trying to increase our herd as quickly as possible, and hope to be in the start of production in 2 years.

Let me know how the goat dairy thing goes. I am considering the same thing. It would be a nice change from my real job if I can make any money at it.

RichZ    Posted 07-07-2003 at 10:53:19       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Cindi, I think you posted this, but it has my name.

And yes, Cindi, I'm the RichZ from TBN's rural living forum. Still trying to find publications for your writing, but as you can guess, I've been coming up empty lately!!!

Cindi    Posted 07-07-2003 at 13:28:16       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well it's great to see/read you! I haven't been able to get back on to rural or any of the others, tried re-registering even and still couldn't make it work so I gave up.

Hi, Cindi!!!

Their server went down, and some people got unregistered during the hyperspace disaster. You were one!!!! A lot of people have been asking about you, and have been asking me where you were, since many people know that we're friends. I'll e-mail you instructions on how to get back on. You are VERY missed!!!

Hi Aprille,
I'm 60, have 2 boys and Suzn has 2, looking to get the last ones outa the house - course they are handy at times - live at a cabin in Mn and tinker. After 4 years Suzn reminded me we're not getting any younger and when i worked she always brought me breakfast in bed so i decided she's a keeper - that seemed like yesterday & we've been together 23 years now :)

Welcome Aprille!

I just turned 46, married to high school sweetheart for 24 years now, and am retired Army. Two mostly-grown sons, 20 and 22, both in college so I have to keep a paying job for now and can't try to make the farm pay yet.

Bought our little farm almost 5 years ago now, still trying to figure out how it all works but having a wonderful time.

welcome again!

Hi Aprille, welcome.

I am 43, have three teenagers, G13, B14, G16. We live on thirty acres in wc Fla. We have ten acres of orange trees, and we pasture raise show hogs for 4-H. It's not paying for us yet either, although it might someday when the kids are grown and gone. But for now my husband still has a full time job as a roofing estimator, and a 120 mile commute daily. We have four dogs and two cats, roughly a hundred or so chickens, about 15 goats, and two pekin ducks.

Welcome Aprille!

I am married with a son 22 and a daughter who'll be 20 next week and I'll turn 50(mumble) next week, too. Daughter just ran off to Oklahoma and got married and she is supposed to leave for the Navy this fall. Son keeps moving out and then bouncing back. Oh well, he's a good mechanic and handy to have around. ;)

We live in a rural part of Texas near Houston with 2 acres, 1 dog, 6 cats, and all the critters that wander through. Being near the Big Thicket makes the wanderers pretty interesting at times.

We've also got some acreage north of here where we'll retire one day, at least that's the plan. :)

Welcome Aprille,
I am a Widow & just moved from an isolated location to a Mobile Home Park here on Eastern Long Island. Lived in the old place for 46 yrs This is a Senior Retirement Community & very nice & a new way of life for me. Great to have neighbors on eiter side of me & across the street. Still have the woods in back of me, so when I sit out in the sun room can still see lots of wildlife puttering around.

I am in south east Texas.
I have grown kids who seem to have finally learned to live on their own.
It has been at least 4 years since one moved back in with me.
I am single (divorced) and live with Top Cat my 10 year old nuetered Himalayan cat.
I grow antigue roses and enjoy working in my yard when it is not 99 degrees with 90% humidity. :-)
I live in a small town and the folks here are mostly country folks.
It's my opinion, most Texans are country folks no matter where they live.
