124. Yes and no.
Edited on Sat Aug-29-09 08:51 AM by hippywife
I love the little liberal haven that is the 8 acres with a tiny house, garden and chickens that we live on. I hate the fact that it is surrounded by the idiocracy that is the rest of Oklahoma. I venture out to work five days a week with my sole thought: making it through the day and getting back here as fast as I can. We don't leave here on the weekends at all if we can help it.
