I wish I could move back to Pocahontas. I'm retired now and sick of city living and long for the slower pace. I miss the old country roads and the people who are actually friendly and wave at you when you drive by. I have good memories of Pocahontas and the people that I met in my younger days.

Pocahontas is a dying town, no jobs, no fun, abandoned houses everywhere. Why would anyone want to move back to this hell hole?

Believe me, it could be worse. At least it hasn't turned into a ghetto as far as I know.
At my age, I just want peace and quiet and not be worried about getting murdered.

I used to want to move back. I went back for a visit and it reminded me why I left in the first place.

I made that mistake 17 years ago when I moved back home to Illinois. What I came back to was a ghetto in progress and now its about 70 percent black and shares the same zip code as East St. Louis. Very dangerous area now and this isn't the way I want to live out the rest of my life.
I got nothing against poor people, been one all my life but ghetto trash is a whole different ball game.

He said he was retired. That means that he no longer works. To break it down a little further for a simple mind, he doesn't need a job.

Aw sweetie don't cry. You are much to pretty to cry and I love Aisan women.
I did 2 tours in Viet Nam and came to prefer the gentle ways of the Asian women and their sexual abilities. So soft and so gentle but passionate as well.

If you had said that to my face, I would have slapped the shit out of you. Just a little creepy I guess.

Did you know that Asian women were the lowest paid prostitutes in the world. That's even behind blacks.

I'm sure someone that is such an expert pays for sex often. And they probably all charge you a little extra.

That was 40-45 years ago when I was in Nam and of course all the GI's visited the prostitute's but the military supplied the condoms so you didn't take home a venereal disease from these women.
They were out there, saying, me suckie suckie, love you long time GI. 5 dollas GI.

You got that right-- this is nothing but a chuck city ghetto. Move on down to Pine Bluff or Helena.

Okay, for all of you that haven't noticed Pocahontas is becoming a retirement get away or even home for those seeking a quiet and some what pleasant atmosphere for retiree's. That is why its hard to find a decent job in Pocahontas. I mean nothing against retiring people whom wish to grace us with their MONEY and presence but for those of us trying to make a living in their hometown we got to realize we might live here but to keep pokey thriving we will have to spread our imaginary wings and branch out to outlying cities to earn the money to give to our town; be it in crazy arse grocery bills at Walmart or to the gas stations and restaurants.
