for all you east coast solvers. 2 feet or more is not fun.
No matter how young you are your heart can quit on you.
Take your time and rest

I got outa Chicago back in 1949, when I was 13 years old. Best thing my parents did (after marrying and having me) was move to Portland, which used to be a nice town.

I'm betting in '49 Chi Town was also a nice town Daley made sure of it.


EDIT: oops he was `1955-1976

There were mayoral dynasties before Daley-- the name was Kennelly and before him Kelly.

Looks like we are getting a buy on this one here in New England.
I still can't see myself here forever, especially in later years.

I'd like to move sometime, but my wife owns a small store (which is pretty popular with the locals) and it would be pretty difficult to take it and all our customers with us :)

i'm with you on this one. i would love to end up on the coast.. don't really care as long as its salt water.. former squid.
personally i would love to go back down to Kings Bay or Charleston, but my wife doesn't want to quite go that far.. i have managed to persuade her to go as far south as north carolina (we both still have family in the area and both being the oldest siblings we still feel like we need to be here to help take care of our folks - even though they have both said not to let it stop them). we can make NC between 10-12 hours, quicker if we fly.
but we both agreed that once our oldest is in 9th grade, if we haven't found greener pastures, we are going to stay here till both of our boys are out of school. my oldest is in 7th now and our youngest is in 4th, so i have 2 years to find something where we want to be (between southern maryland and northern north carolina). so the race is on....
why we didn't do this in our lives B.C. (before children) is beyond me, but until they firmly plant her or set me up with my viking funeral, its never too late... cheersdance 1:ride:

If I could work from home and do my orders that way I so would, but from Montana or Wyoming.....
Idaho is another good Republican state and lots of great riding roads.
