I live in an 18-hole golf course community although I have not played golf in a while. I have access to four lakes
and a pool and clubhouse. As many outdoor activities I want to do and the cutest little condo, just perfect for a single woman. At night you can see the moon and the stars and listen to the country critters.

It seems that small town living is suiting us, at our age. I have family who are city dwellers visiting and enjoying my country retreat, so I rarely have to travel to keep in contact.
Retirement is such a wonderful relaxing time of our lives. We have time to appreciate nature in all its glory.

I love rural life and the people living around me are great. Also living here offers me a chance if I choose to do the things, I like in life which I could not do in the city...

What goldmine? She invests in beer and cigarettes with my money. It’s nice having her close though along with all of my known kids.

Not unusual to see a customer pick up his order at the McDonald’s drive-thru on horseback and some establishments still allow both your dog and a sidearm in the store. Pot is legal and I have seen both the good and the bad but mostly have to endure that skunk smell that is permanent in some neighborhoods. The fishing is good this year so I think I’ll stick around for another year.

My son just made a comment to this post we were planning a visit to see him, and he suggested to come to see us as there were so many more things, he and the kids could do here rather than in his hometown in the city, but I do not think he would be happy here living full time, he is just not cut out for rural living I do not think.

The good bits, it takes about fifteen mins to walk to the town, lots of cycle paths that I use for mobility scooter, so far good people live in our square, parking a bit full weekends but there is an empty office building next to me with a car park for five cars, now this is the strange bit, no young children in the square.
On the odd occasion, people's grandchildren visit and it's great to hear them playing outside, (we have none).

Interesting how Shadowing a poster on an International platform reveals similarities, quite out of the blue.
