Back To the Country











My occasional yearning to move back to the country has been rekindled. Finding myself in a rural setting the last several days reminded me of the appeal of living in a small, isolated town, or better yet, a few acres in the middle of nowhere. With the advent of satellite internet, radio and television, the concept has never been more feasible. After all, it's in my blood- I'm just two generations removed from the farm.

    You can take the boy out of the country, but you can't take the country out of the boy.

    Two generations is a heck of a long time, city boy. And I hear them chiggers is fierce.

    I'm with ya, Hap. And we'd shed a few lbs. with the nearest One-Price Chinese Lunch Special joint over two hours away.

    Perhaps I should allow a game of checkers between Emaw and Lee decide my fate.

    One of the ironies of rural life, Gurl, is that the nearest grocery store rarely offers fresh produce. You're forced to grow your own.

    That sounds nice, Spyder, but Trimble's practically in downtown KC. I'd want to be far enough away from the city's glow to see all the stars.

    King me!

    Spyder: I hear KC's Mayor is looking for a little getaway...
