People compare me to Vivian Leigh all the time. She has 2 eyes, I have 2 eyes. She has a nose, I have a nose. She has a mouth, I have a mouth. The similarities are endless. Well, now that our house is up for sale, I can't help but remember a bit of Vivian's speech at the end of Gone With the Wind where, as Scarlett O'Hara, she looks up at Rhett & says "Wherever shall I go?"
I've been thinking that same thing recently. Wherever shall I go? When the house sells I mean. And please don't give me the answer that Rhett gave to Scarlett : )
I know it's early to be concerned about this, but then again, it's not. No one may even want to buy this house, but it's possible that our first viewer will fall in love with it & make us an offer we can't refuse, & what then? Wherever shall I go?
John & I have nothing holding us to any particular part of the country. We're both retired so the sky is the limit as far as moving goes. Can anyone give me any suggestions? We like cold & snow. Mountains, lakes, forests ... all pretty. We hate smoking. We don't want to pay no-fault insurance prices. We don't like crowds. The less the insect population, the better.
Property taxes really don't matter because we will be renting for at least a year to make sure we like the area. We may even rent until Jesus comes to get us. We will be wanting to rent a nice house or townhouse.
Places We're Thinking About
But Have Never Been
Is anyone familiar with these towns or others near them ... say within a radius of an hour or two?
Vail, Frisco, Fraser, or Winter Park, Colorado
Fond du Lac, Wisconsin
Altoona or Harrisburg, PA
Rochester, Syracuse, Schenectady, or Albany, New York
I'm open to other suggestions : )
