    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Johnson City. We love it here! Between the two of us we’ve been through 18 Hurricanes including Andrew and Katrina which hit us as a Cat 1. But Andrew was a monster. Even if we somehow were to lose power during winter up here, I’d still rather be here because it’s always easier to get warm, whereas getting cool is a much tougher proposition!

    Welcome (back)! Glad you made it out alive!

    Let us know how you like it out there. It is on my list of land locked areas to consider for retirement.

My wife popped smoke and retired from her teaching position as well. Between us we had a total of (gulp) 74 years teaching experience with the heavy end of that (44 years) landing on her. I've been an NRA Instructor for 31 years now, as well. So now, I can enjoy life and feel safe in our new home in East Tennessee!
    Congratulations on your well-earned retirement.

    Like you, I'm a retired HS teacher, but I have 5 years head start on you.

    It'll seem kinda strange for the first few months, getting all your time on your own schedule. But after awhile, it'll just be life on your own terms.

    My God, did they actually let you out or have you escaped?


    Welcome back either way. (no really, I mean that!)
