    Funny. . .When I was younger, I couldn't wait to get out of this State. Now here I am at age 42 and I cannot think of any other place I would rather live and raise my three daughters.

    deespoohbear -- that list was hilarious! and so true!

    Lausana -- Shopping sounds like a great idea. Maybe we could also start a Euchre club! Cheerfuldoer, if you don't know what euchre is, you are soon to find out. Good luck with your move!

    Go Purdue!

    Are old men invited to the get together? I sure would like to meet you guys somewhere for lunch, I am not much for shopping though. I think it is a great idea, I will even bring my dear wife if invited. I was born a Hoosier, and have been all over the world, but this is my home. BTW, go IU and Tony Stewart. I am indeed a euchre master.

    :chuckle We don't have to really shop, it just makes for a nice gathering place. <wink wink> I'm sure in Indy we could find something we'd all enjoy

    hmm, where'd I put those cards...

    I was recruited to Indiana from Florida and worked LTC and Rush Memorial Hospital which is 50 miles south on SR52 from INDY. The people there are warm and friendly, love to wave and will go out of there way to help you if needed, but the EXCISE Taxes on license plates are way out of line and in some counties they have a tire tax(Fayette County)which is levied yearly. You'll hear new words like; youins' and if you ask where something is they'll tell you,"up yonder a piece".
    465 run's North,South,East&West and most State roads are 2 lanes with NO median or place to change a flat tire(52). Batesville is actually known as the Hospital Bed Manufactor Capital while Brookville is home to the largest Casket Company and has a beautiful lake by the same name. It's scenery and rolling hills are to die for and the climate is tolerable after the initial shock of winter has been lived through.
    I have a 'winter home' 4 miles south of Laurel and my youngest son will be graduating from Purdue this december.
    Everywhere has its good and bad but if I had to choose on a northern state it would be the 'Crossroads of America', Indiana.
    Although I'm back in Florida, I'm still licensed in Indiana and Virginia.
    Best Wishes and good luck in finding employment you'll not need!
    Best of Luck in your move.

    WOW!!! The support here is fantastic! Go Hoosiers! (standing ovation) :kiss

    I am sooooo looking forward to living in your state as it sounds wonderful! My oldest daughter loves living there, too! I'm so encouraged by the support your hospitals give to nurses who are merging back into the field. I am mailing off my licensure by endorsement application this upcoming week, and will have the license sent to my daughter's home there in Indy since I will NEVER be returning to TX. You guys have me so excited now I can hardly wait to get moving and settle down there.

    I am very much looking forward to meeting all of you when I get there, so it doesn't matter if we meet in a park and build snowmen and make angel shapes in the snow......I want to hug each and everyone of you for you have answered my prayers here on this thread. (((((((hugs)))))))) and :kisses

    cheerfuldoer--well, you couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome. I've never seen anything like it on this BB before.

    Best wishes,

    (When you get to Indiana, ask somewhat what "cabbaging on" means.)

    Okay Indy residents: Pray tell me what "cabbaging on" means???

    Hi Susan
    I'm so looking forward to my new adventure in Indiana. It's nice to know that at age 50 I can still look forward to a new start in life. God is good......oh so good indeed! I know I will bounce back, recover from this transitional period in my life, and be wiser and better because of it all. I am looking forward to meeting all of my Allnurses siblings who reside there in the Hoosier state. Nighty night......until tomorrow sometime.....much love, :kiss

    I have lived in the Hoosier state my whole life and don't know what "cabbaging on" means. Someone please explain. Thanks.
