I lived in CA for 53 years before moving here to NE TN. I lived in So Cal where it was all asphalt and concrete. I moved here to TN in 2002 because I met my future wife online. I was so lonely after my wife died that I could barely function. Here I have an 1.25 acres in a very small appalachian town. I tell people I have thousands of mouths to feed. I have squirrels galore, more bird types than I can count, I have deer, skunk, possum, fox, black bear and chipmunks. I sit quietly on patio and watch mother nature at it's best. This makes my retirement better than anything I could ever have imagined. I am a city boy and my wife is a born and bred country girl. She is so very protective of me and for this I am grateful. She says that she is so happy I no longer work in a hospital and I have to agree with her. You folks are now living in a world I could never have imagined. My hat is off to all of you. God Bless you all!!
