Oh Red, I'd be a basket case trying to hatch! I was a neurotic mess every time I whelped pups! I really don't need a feather. You're sweet. I almost never have a slow down from pop ups. I run Google chrome with pop up blocker.
I loved Granny's christmas story too.
I was looking at houses around Asheville, Hendersonville and Spartanburg. Such beautiful country. Do you know if they tax retirement there? I was hoping to get outta Ca in 1.5 yrs, but DH says it'll be closer to 3. Ca taxes everything, so we need to be out of here before we collect retirement.
I found lots of pretty places near Knoxville too.
