Ya know, I've lived in about 20 different places. Many times its been in a subdivision/city. Not bad . Enjoyed it, in fact. I've lived in the country on and off for many years. So I can honestly tell you what I prefer.
The place I live now was a clear and conscious choice. I truly enjoy the woods with paths, the field that holds the"Easter flower" patch of the home from long ago and the pond with the old rowboat and the more than ample dock. It makes me glow with contentment watching the grandchildren rush their friends to see the few chickens and perhaps collect an egg or two, then playing a game of tug of war with the dog.. It's great watching them dash across the dock leaping high in the air giving a war whoop to see how much of a splash they can make. And the gazebo tucked down below the steep wooded bank where one can sit with a glass of lemon aid and watch a game of corn hole. Sometimes we watch the neighbors cows with their gentle swishing tails. Frogs, crickets, birds and the occasional train whistle in the far distance. Yep. If this makes me a hillbilly, then that's what I want to be. Oh yeah!

@Anne.. I totally agree with your post. I am honored to be called a Hill-Billy. I have lived in the country and commuted to the city for over 40 years to work.

Many people have asked why I drove so far to work and my reply was "I don't drive this far to work, I drive this far to get away from the city".

Now I am permanently here and only go into town when it is absolutely necessary and I have never had a sip of "Starbucks" in my life nor have I ever driven a BMW. But I have driven a tractor and followed a gas-passing mule. LOL

The simple life is a luxurious one I wholeheartedly agree. Simple because I don't have to worry about a car jacking- not yet anyway- and if partner wants to use a tree like a dog then whiz at it. Gardens, ponds, animals great and small. Squirrels scrambling from branch to branch. Loving this country life;) Sure am Blessed by life's little fortunes.

Great day to All the good Folks! May you have joy throughout the day;)Nature itself is a humbling experience. To enjoy the running brooks and hear all the creatures. Nothing better except the sounds of children's laughter as they partake of the great bounty offered by Mother Earth and truly appreciate what is front of them. I agree, Anne, you and AW have your paradise as far as I can tell. I love your true stories.

Simple life, good life, extravagant life....any life not filled with pain is a good life if you ask me. Life is good, I almost bought the farm recently.
Man oh man I'm glad the good lord decided to let me live a while longer. I had a whole lot of things to do that I didn't even know I needed to do! Weeks and weeks in the hospitable hospital has made old imposter see how good this old shack really is.
I almost checked out for good folks, I am so glad to be alive! I'm going to court me a widow if my ticker will let me LOL, have a nice day. Life is good.

I agree Imposter. I almost bought the farm twice myself a few years ago and I am still here thanks to the Good Lord and the skills of the surgeons and every day is a bonus and nothing else really matters. I will skip courting of the widows though. I am self sufficient and don't need any more responsibilities. But I will enjoy a few widow's company without any courting. LOL Life is very good. We just don't realize how good until it is almost gone.

Here I was tooting how I love my country living and then I read your post and I realize that good health and being alive is sooooo much more. I do hope your health is good now. It's my guess it is if you are interested in courting... Lol. And I'm glad you haven't " bought the farm" . May God bless and keep you!

It is very windy here and just finished up with the torrents of rain. Guess my hens have cooled off enough as we just gathered a "pink" egg. No eggs at all during this heat...
About living simple. It's lots if work. Now I gotta drain out the rowboat....on and on. I know all of you know exactly what I mean! Lol

Hi, folks. It's been wet and wild here. Hope no one blew away. Lightning knocked out my computer for a short while. I had a flooded "pond" near the end of the driveway, where the water overflowed the culvert. There were about 50 blackbirds using it for a cool-off 'bird bath.' The air is much cooler now, and Anne's and AW's hens are surely happier.@Imposter: I'm so glad that you are better now. I know exactly how you feel. I almost "bought the farm" a year ago, and health and life is so much more important to me right now. I will keep you in my prayers for you to continue to be well.

Not to make light of anyone's health..please don't take this as such...but there seems to be a lot of farms for sale ...lol

Thankfully my health is still good but there has been several times accidents could've/should've happened and we were spared. After doing a 360 on ice-which included hitting a ditch bank that prevented us from flipping over--we sat in silence until my grandson spoke in a soft voice, "Grandma, are we dead?"

A positive attitude that sure will keep you going;) I wish you better health and luck in love. Your heart sure is big; may you find someone to help build up the fires:) You can never be too old to court a good thing. Hehe.

storm passed through here about 5 pm but no damage except power loss for a few minutes. I don't have a/c so that did not matter and besides there was nothing but junk on the tv anyways. I did get my chickens back up before it got real bad except for 2 little guys. They kept running around and around the building in the rain but would not go through the door. LOL

My smaller chickens are funny. They gather up right under my feet and if I am wearing sandals, they peck my toes and if I have regular shoes on they untie my shoe laces. Sometimes I step on their feet and they squawk but keep coming back for more.

looks like the judge is Johnny-on-the-spot hitting my post that has only been up for 7 minutes. Sure glad I did not make them wait too long LOL

Maybe they are like my little chickens and squawk but keep coming back for more. LOL

Two years within to study these 52000 year old cypresses. Quite an interesting story if the area is studied. I really hope the researchers get their grant before it's too late. The trunks' girth are around two meters around. Interesting find.
Raining intermittently in eastern Ky., temp. lower tonight. Steamy last night. Nice day as well as night.
Hopefully, the weather gets calm and stays that way for a while. The birds have been depleting the feeder faster than I can supply the seeds. They sure were creating a ruckus under the tree yesterdaynupon realizing there was no more food. Lol. Guess, they like easy pickings;)

Thanks for the well wishes folks. Like wolf said some never know how good they have it till its about over.
I can do without pork chops for breakfast and force down plain oatmeal...eat more grass (salad) I guess.
I had some fine neighbors welcome me home, they said the holler just wouldn't be the same without me causing trouble up in here....
Abeliever if you were one mile closer- my old international harvester might would make it there.
I intend to live life to the fullest while I can, hope you all do the same.
Stay away from that bacon! It'll kill you! But dang if it aint good.
Get out and do something fun today, I am going to sleep a little while longer and do just that.
