19. I tried to get my husband to buy a condo on Bonaire two summers ago...

and he wouldn't do it. We have friends who have lived there--most of the year--for the last 25 years. They would have helped
us with advice about the paperwork.

I can't get my husband to give up his practice (he's 74). It's driving me crazy. I want out...willing to go to Hawaii or St. John or St. Croix
even though US very isolated from the gun nuts and bigots all over the mainland...if hubby won't do another country.

We also do have permanent resident visas for Panama--long story involving the decision to create an escape hatch during the Bushie boy years--but we
sold the property we were building there after our house here burned down in 2007 and Obama was elected we no longer felt the need. So we'd still
have to start all over again with bank accounts, etc and I don't think we could afford to buy in to the development 10 years later!
