A tiny island...who knows where cause no one can find me without a boat and an oar...alas I'm doomed unless I fly off on my rainbow..*g*

Ok, that far fetched place called the British Isles where the sun dries up the rain so it snows and then the rain comes again to wash away the snow and then the sun comes out to dry up the rain and with any luck you see a rainbow before the hail starts and we start the whole process over again...ROFL

But come stand with me and watch open mouthed as the sun rises or watch that ball of orange slowly sink into the horizon as the sun sets...truly magical..

Manhattan.  Yep, Manhattan.  Oh, wait, that's Manhattan, Kansas, not Manhattan as in New York City.  Oh well.  But I'm not really from here, I'm just living here b/c that is where I live right now when they teach me things at college.  But I'm really from Kansas City.  The one in Kansas, not the one in Missouri.  But more specifically, it's called Shawnee, and it is a suburb of Kansas City in Kansas.  More specifically, my address is...wait, no, don't think I'll be doing that.  *grins*

Wow you guys.....
This is great fun reading where all of you are at, and a little bit about it.

I'm just about 20 minutes east of Seattle, in Issaquah.
And it's a HUGE change from here to there.
I'm spoiled, close to many towns, have lots of trees and I drive 40 minutes further east and I can snowski. Add another hour and a half to that and I have sand dunes....
Can water ski just 10 minutes away......
And Canada is a hop, skip and a jump for me...
ANYWAY..... Thanks all for sharing with me...

I'm currently holding Michael prisoner in central California ... I'd let him see the sun now and then but it's just so foggy here in the winter ... sigh.  Course, I AM planning to drag him up to a spot in the mountains soon, so I'm sure we'll see some blue sky there ...

Hmm, well not that it matters, but I live in Snoozeville U.S.A.  an unfortunately rapidly growing community called Santa Clarita Valley, CA...or if you want more specific I live in Canyon Country (cant you tell how broing it is bythe name?)  We have of course Six Flags tragic (I mean Magic) Mountain (but when you live here you dont like to go, its boring).  I live where it never rains and never snows, you can go swimming in the winter, but yet you drive 45 miles east and you are at the beach, drive30-40 miles north and you get snow, drive 45 miles west and you get the desert (which gets snow all the time as well), and you go 40 miles south and you are in Los Angeles.  I basically live inthemiddle of hell, so word of advice, if you're ever driving down I-5 and pass Magic Mountain, just keep going dont stop.  Same thing if you are driving down the 14 just keep going, you dont want to be here =)  Anyway, now you know where I live so can um someone get me out of here??  hehe  BTW HI to all I havent seen in a LONG LONG time!

I sit and ponder and lift thoughts from my consciousness, spilling them forth to here, raising my lit cigarette and blowing smoke in the face of reali

I'm currently in Norman, Oklahoma (GO SOONERS!!!)  although I miss Southern California sooooooooooooo much.  I saw that someone was from La Grange, Texas... heh, one of my best friends lives there, wonder if you know her!

Come back to Michigan. . . we still have snow!!

I come from a little place called ďalmost HeavenĒ. Yep, West Virginia is my state. (NO, NOT western Virginia, West Virginia! Itís been a state since 1863! geez!) I hail from the southern part of the state, where people still mine coal and the descendants of the Hatfields and McCoys reside. (Yes, I am one of them... both Hatfield and McCoy) This is one of the few places where guys skip school to go hunting! But it is also one of the most beautiful places Iíve ever seen, and I think it deserves itís nickname.

It's been great reading about everyone's home!
