Where do you live?

I live in colorado-denver. Have for virtually my entire life except for 5 short years while in my 30's, I lived in Chandler Arizona. All of it has been city living except for the last 2 misearable years before my marriage ended and after I returned to Colorado from Arizona, I lived in the Colorado mountains, just 25 miles from the city. It was a dumpy dirty little house on the north side of the mountain, but it was beautiful to live in the mountains...the nature, the walks/hikes with my daughter to get away from the hell house. I do miss that part of living in the mountins, but being single, I need to live in the city, I guess.

Where do you live?

Oh, I'm so jealous! My long distance BF lives in Denver. I think the city is beautiful and we've taken several day trips to the mountains too.

I'm currently just north of Tampa, Florida. Been here for about 9 years now. Spent the previous 9 in the northern Atlanta suburbs and prior to that - 27 years all over upstate NY.

I'm getting itchy for a move. Perhaps Denver?

I live in Bowie, MD, which is close to Annapolis and Baltimore. But, I would love to get the heck off the east coast. I think I have a little leftcoast in my blood - at least most people think so. I lived in short stints in Rochester, NY and Detroit. Gabriele, I have relatives in Chandler/Gilbert. I would miss it too. I absolutely loved the mountains there. I hope to visit them sometime this year - maybe Thanksgiving. I have a chance to uproot to Colorado Springs within the next few months. My company has an office there and they need contracts support there. I commuted between here and Chicago for almost a year, a few years ago, but this would be a total move. Now that the kitchen is almost finished - YEAH, tomorrow is FRIDAY!!, I'm not sure I want to just leave. We'll see...

I live in Kansas, migrated here from Oklahoma in 1950 and have lived here ever since. I have always wished I lived in a log cabin in the Ozarks. Instead I will just be grateful for what I have.

RE: Where do you live?

I live in upstate New York in the Adirondack Mountains. I did live in Mississippi for five years then returned home. You can take the girl out of the mountains but you can't take the mountains out of the girl.

How close to me, Jonesy?


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I live in Wichita. I believe we used to drive through your town when we went to visit my husband's sister at Warrensburg, Missouri. She lived in Grandview for many years also. My husband and I used to go to gun shows and doll shows in KC, so we are familiar with the south side and parts of downtown.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Yes, you would have passed through LS on 50 highway. Anytime you can make it down this way, just email me - I'd love to meet you! Jo


 o
RE: Where do you live?

If I get to my SIL's again I will do that. My neighbor's and I often discuss going to KC and staying at the crown center hotel for some shopping, but we never seem to get around to it.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Linda - I may have asked before, but where in the Adirondacks? I lived all over upstate for over 25 years and taught school in Tupper Lake.

Barbara - now in Florida


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I live in the high plains of western Kansas.....lived in Colorado Springs for 10 years and loved the mountains...grew up here, thought it was a better place to raise a child and now I'm here more for my mom than myself. I'm only a 4 hr drive away from the Springs so I can still escape whenever I can...If you ever decide to go there Mary, give me a shout and I'll be your personal tour guide.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Mary, don't follow Michael - he will lead you astray with actions you will NEVER forget! LOL


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Nah, I'd never do that Jo. I'm a gentleman to a fault.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Oh, NO (Michael and everyone) - another slip of my memory - gosh, I can't remember CRAP anymore! TeeHeeeeeeee!!!!


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I hear ya Jo - Michael has already shown us his cards with that other post. I KNOW very well not to follow him around! Glad I read this though - I need to let them know tomorrow if I want to go out there, but I've been too busy here to even consider it. Now I guess I'll put on my thinking cap - ooops, it's too small. Oh well; guess I'm staying here with my new kitchen and W/D.

Good laughs you two (K-J and Michael).


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I live the nation's fruit and nut bowl, the California Central Valley. Modesto, CA.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Oh but Mary, it would just be a three hour tour........a three hour tour.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Three hours - is that all!! Somehow I get the feeling that those would be three very long hours!! I tell you what - when/if I get there, I'll call ya; but not during tornado season - LOL...

By the way - those pics were breathtaking!!


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I promise not to bring Gilligan along this time....he is the one that screwed up my last 3 hr tour.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Michael, excuse me??? You HAVE to bring Gilligan along! She just HAS TO meet the 'big guy', the 'boss' - ok, I'll stop now!


 o
RE: Where do you live?

OK, what is Gilligan???? I'm assuming he's harmless...???


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Oh good grief...didn't any of you people grow up watching Gilligans Island as a kid....there was nothing obscene about it.....I was just saying it would be a 3 hour tour ,like the song. On another board once, the moderator had fun and changed all our names to Gilligan characters and we had a blast for a couple evenings....I was the Skipper. Had fun slapping my "little buddy" with my cap. Always was partial to Maryanne though.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

LOL! Mike, I remember! I thought Gilligan's island was a permanent part of American pop culture. But there are people who don't know Paul McCartney was once with a band called "The Beatles."


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I know about The Beatles because my Grandma saved the record for me!


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Yep, just like my great grandfather saved that Woodstock album for me.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Michael, what are you doing home from work so early?


 o
RE: Where do you live?

woke up with a fever and a nasty cough this morning....not much going on at work so I wasn't missed much....feeling better this afternoon, but I am about ready for a nap now, as I missed some sleep during the night.


 o
RE: Where do you live?

I awakened with a sore throat yesterday, but I STILL went to work! I'm sure glad I did - the big boss dropped in - I get to see him once or twice a year, whether I need to or not! LOL


 o
RE: Where do you live?

Wish I had been sick yesterday....blizzard conditions and 20 below wind chills....a little nicer today. I'll make it to work tomorrow, I'm sure.
