Getting to Know You - September 8


Recommended Posts


I know...hard to believe in this mobile society, eh? :? But for the first 37 yrs. of my life, I lived all but a couple of years of it in the same school district...virtually a 15 block triangle. :shock:

Since 37 yrs of age, I've lived here...almost 22 yrs now.

Guess I'm not only a homebody...but a city/town loyalist too....eh? :wink:

Born and raised in Philadelphia.

Vineland NJ for 6 months

Horsham PA for 29 years

Just moved to Montgomery Township in April '05.

Earl died within 2 miles of where he was born. Did do some moving around in between.

Of all his and my siblings, we are the only ones that stayed in the area. Guess we are just boring people.

Born in Long Beach,CA.

Moved to Dallas, Texas @ 9 mos of age.

Age 15, moved to France.

Lubbock, Texas (the only thing good about Lubbock is that I met Jim there while he was in town working on a construction job.)

A whole bunch of little towns in Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas when I travelled and worked with Jim on the water tanks.

Finally landed in Oklahoma City where we have lived since 1983.

(Jim was born and raised in Washington State and didn't have much good to say about the Southwest. Always wanted to move back to the Oregon coast one day but we didn't make it. Crum!)

Born in Wolfe City (Hunt County), Texas

Grew up in Idalou, Texas

Lived in Lubbock, Texas

Lived in San Antonio, Texas

Now in Nashville, TN

I traveled a lot of places during that time, but kept one home base for the most part. San Antonio was and always will be a favorite, even though Nashville is a great place to live.

I'm one of those native Texans you hear about - true blue!

Hmmm...if I tell ya'll you might think I'm a gypsy...I better keep it to just states.

Missouri, Illinois and Minnesota.

But how I'd loooooove to move somewhere warm. But sure would miss fall in the midwest. I don't think there is anything like it!!!!
