    I was just curious.
    I am many years and many miles from the town where I was born.
    I've been back fairly recently and it is still just like it was, only a bigger, dirtier city and I don't miss it at all.
    I'm a Texan right down in my soul and I'm so glad I ended up where I did-in the sticks in The Lone Star State. [​IMG]
    My only regret is that I just wish the rest of my family were closer.

    Easttx, did you know DH was born in Texas? He was born there but moved here to this farm as a young child. So basically, he has lived within a 20 mile radius of this farm his whole entire life. I can't imagine that!

    I'm not sure what city to call my "hometown". Would it be the city where I was born, but only lived there until I was 2? Or Miami, FL where I spent a good part of my growing up? Or Asheville, NC where I spent the rest of my growing years? I've lived in Colorado, Tennessee and Georgia too, but none of those left much of an impression.

    Now my heart is here on this farm in rural Arkansas and here my heart will stay. [​IMG]

    I was born in Peoria, Il., but before I was 2 weeks old, we moved to Ar. I was raised until school age, about 12 miles from where I live now. Then throughout school, I lived in Pekin, Il. When I got out of school, I spent 2 years around Atlanta, Ga., & 12 years in Tucson, Az. I've been back in Arkansas for 21 years now, & have no intentions of ever leaving again.

    We moved around a good bit as well when I was a kid within a fairly small radius of Louisville, Kentucky.
    Never quite fit in there, now I know why-I belong here. [​IMG]

    Hummm... Letsee...

    The closest I've been to 'living' near my home town in the last nine years (OMG, that makes me feel OLD. Has it really been that long? ... crap) is about 2,000 miles. Life takes you to such unexpected places some times.

    I don't live in the same COUNTRY I grew up in.

    But I'm 15 minutes from the house I grew up in. Figure THAT one out. [​IMG]
