2. To me.............
living in a city is like some people not wanting to be in the woods. I lived in the mountains for years. Now living in So. AZ but on 5 acres with all the pests that go with it and I LOVE it!!!!!!

5. Those bastards
Aren't our woods good enough for them? Are they un-American or something?

8. I'm counting the days...
... (about 8 years) until I can move out to my 40 acres of trees in Tx near OK. We go up there every weekend we can, and frankly if I never came back to Dallas at all it would be OK with me.

There is bambi, lots of deer, turkey, rabbits, armadillo, snakes, bugs, you name it. It is wonderful :)

10. I don't get it either but each to their own.
Mountain life is the best. Now I'm home sick again :hangover: Some day we'll be off this flat stinky prairie and back safely nestled in the mountains with all the trees and the various woodland creatures. I'm happiest living a mountain life.
