    Moving on a manner of speaking. I do not know yet where I will be posted but I have made a decision for the longer term. I lived in San Diego county for 25 years and find that I really miss it. Yes, it is pricey and crowded but then so are a lot of other places. While I love living in the MH, I miss not having m own dirt underfoot.

    So on Sunday I journey to CA to likely make an offer on a piece of dirt. Just a few more things to check out, but my mind is pretty much made up. I'd have to find a real deal killer in the next couple of days to walk away.

    Stay tuned. More to come as the next week unfolds.

    Some say the land of milk and honey; others say the land of fruits and nuts. All together my sort of heaven.

    Power is not taken. It is given. Who have you given yours to? Hmmmm?

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Always nice to have a piece of dirt to call your own. Can't say as I blame you for wanting a place to anchor.

    It sure is fun to sit back and watch where life leads us.

    You are certainly a "can do lady" Carol, so I have no doubts you'll find your place in the sun. Best of luck to you, it'll all work out nicely to your desires. Nirvana is calling.

    More fun to sit back and read where life leads Carol. My life is good be awfully dull compared.

    I was in San Diego for a while in '63. It was one place I always thought I wouldn't mind living. I would guess it is a bit more crowded now.
