4. I was raised in relatively smalltown Michigan where this was also normal.

My folks retired to Tucson in 1980 and I started visiting almost immediately.
I also KNEW immediately that I wanted to move here from the relatively
small Philly bedroom community where I had lived since 1980. I finally got
the chance in 1998.
Believe it or not, one of the things pretty foremost in my mind as an attractive
aspect of this area was that bus drivers and grocery store cashiers would get
in real conversations with their customers --- sometimes continuing a subject
from the last time they had seen each other.
Sometimes, folks will get impatient and you can hear them muttering, "C'mon,
c'mon, c'mon c'mon!!!"
I was always under the impression that they were visiting... or that they had
moved here, but wouldn't really SETTLE here.
