Where do you hound-dogs live?
« Reply #15 on: October 09, 2007, 12:42:30 AM »
Born, raised, married, work and have spent my entire 51 years in Philly with the occasional vacation in other locales.  Spent 4 years at Temple U gettin' my degree.  Weather-wise we have it better than most other places in that we have 4 seasons, not too much with temperature extremes and while we have our share of bad weather, we usually miss out on direct hits from hurricanes, tornados, hail, etc.  The ocean and NYC are both 1.5 hours away.  If you drive 1 hour south or west of Philly, you are entering the Twilight Zone and the marked difference between these areas and Philly is nite and day.  In that it turns into the Southern Bible Belt (attitudes, drawl, NASCAR, ETC).  Sometimes I swear we are only 10 miles north of the Carolinas.  ahhahhaha

I think it should be possible for everyone to add a place marker without further need for login or anything. Try it out..  [:)]

Thanks for the map Simon, this is really cool!  It's so much fun to see where we all make our little marks on this big blue ball.  Too bad that this map isn't active all the time in the forum, rather than having to come back to this thread to see it (I have it bookmarked).  It would be neat if existing members who missed it, and new members who didn't see it, could leave their mark too!

Born in K.C., Missouri.  Grew up in New Hampshire.  Have lived in Boston, New Jersey, New York and Maine.  Retired (lucky enough to do it early, thank god) in 2000 and moved aboard a boat and cruised between the Bahamas and Canada.  Then moved ashore for a few years in St. Petersburg, Florida.  Now back aboard, living in Annapolis.  BUT.... in a few weeks we're out O' here headed south, back to the Bahamas.  Yahoo!!!

Live in beautiful downtown Wiggins, MS - 30 miles north of Gulfport/Biloxi, 90 miles east of New Orleans, 60 miles West of Mobile.  Great place to live - small town where people know you, your family and some of your business!
Example, I was playing golf with a friend one day.  Another young man was playing in the group.  My friend asked me who the young fellow was.  I told him the guy's name.  He told me, and I quote, I know his name, I want to know who he is!

Nacogdoches (born and reared[:0]), the oldest town in Texas, was named for the Caddo Indians that lived in the area.

One quick story:
In 1912, the Marx Brothers came to town to perform their singing act at the old Opera House. Their performance was interrupted by a man who came inside shouting, Runaway mule! Most of the audience left the building, apparently thinking a runaway mule would provide better entertainment. When they filed back in, Julius (later known as Groucho) began insulting them, saying Nacogdoches is full of roaches! and The jackass is the flower of Tex-ass! Instead of becoming angry, audience members laughed. Soon afterward, Julius and his brothers decided to try their hand at comedy instead of singing, at which they had barely managed to scrape together a living.

Hey Wily,,

Also from California.  Born down in El Centro and then on to Los Angeles and San Diego.  Spent the young man years in San Francisco and attened San Mateo J C, to keep out of the draft.

They finally caught up to me and I went to Heidelberg, Germany.  Total luck on my part.

Left Germany to spend time with a lady from Florida.  Eventually made it back to Oregon, where my folks had moved from California.

Back to Florida for a while and then out to Nevada and then back to Osprey, Florida.  

I cannot wait for the next jump,,,,

Steve
