3. You can drive for 4 hours in one direction and never leave town.

4. You have over 100 recipes for Mexican food.

6. The 4 seasons are: tolerable, hot, really hot, and ARE YOU KIDDING ME??!!


You can retire to California where...

1. You make over $250,000 and you still can't afford to buy a house.

2. The fastest part of your commute is going down your driveway.

3. You know how to eat an artichoke.

4. You drive your rented Mercedes to your neighborhood block party.

5. When someone asks you how far something is, you tell them how long it will take to get there rather than how many miles away it is.

6. The 4 seasons are: Fire, Flood, Mud, and Drought.


You can retire to New York City where...

1. You say "the city" and expect everyone to know you mean Manhattan.

4. You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multi-lingual.

5. You've worn out a car horn. (Ed. Note if you have a car).

2. Halloween costumes fit over parkas.

You can retire to the Deep South where...

1. You can rent a movie and buy bait in the same store.

2. "Y'all" is singular and "all y'all" is plural.

3. "He needed killin" is a valid defense.

4. Everyone has 2 first names: Billy Bob, Jimmy Bob, Mary Sue, Betty Jean, Mary Beth, etc.

5. Everything is either "in yonder," "over yonder" or "out yonder." It's important to know the difference, too.

1. You carry your $3,000 mountain bike atop your $500 car.

2. You tell your husband to pick up Granola on his way home so he stops at the day care center.

With those choices, I'd opt for the deep south.

Mid-west living isn't too bad. Now............where's my Monty at? Oh yeah, it's out in the driveway outside.

I think I'll "pass" on commenting and comb my ponytail before I pick up Granola.
Thanks for the laugh!

I think the mid-west is getting a bad rap. Picked up the truck for a 300 mile trip this AM and had the heater on, lunch in Parker had the AC on, getting gas at Q in the rain shut the whole thing off, driving back to Yuma the sun came out again and had the AC on, now it's cold again and would need the heater and this is supposedly the warmest part of AZ.

The "state" of retirement is great no matter where you are located in this great nation. What an entertaining post.

You can tell you have not been to the Central Plains Regional Rally here in Nebraska! The Midwest is definately getting a bad rap here Dick! For those that have not been to the CPRR come and join us in July and enjoy some great Nebraska hospitality. We always give our attendees a WARM welcome and try and show you a good time! Oh, by the way, this year we will be celebrating "Christmas in July" again at Pine Grove RV Park and Campground just off I-80 between Omaha and Lincoln. Watch for more postings of the upcoming CPRR and be ready to enjoy yourself!

It's pretty hard to beat Wisconsin IN THE SUMMER. The weather does not stay the same very long at a time. In the winter it stays the same; COLD!! Plus the seasons are different from most other states. Wisconsin has
1. Winter
2. Road Construction
3. Deer Hunting
Thats It!
