OK..you all have to choose 'hippie' names!

And since we'll be living in 'peace and harmony', all you'll need Sheriff Tree is a squirt gun!

First of all, don't forget the pigs cause i do like pork chops, pork tenderloins, and most specially BACON!!!   You never go wrong with bacon and eggs for breakfast.  Another thing too, don't forget ponds for raising fish.  Some of us might wanna diet every once in a while, and it's good for lent

I do also have an idea for the name of the town...what do you think about "Passions"
And can we move it over to Illinois area.  A little snow in the winter wouldn't hurt.  That'll give us greater ideas for discriptive poems too.

Count me in

I like Acire's idea of moving it to Illinois. That way if I get home sick I could take the CTA home!!And you know Chicago is famous for their pizza. Yummy!!!So how does that sound??

Ok - Yeah. Illinios is a great idea. Then, not only do we get freezing cold weather in the winter, those of us that survive it (myself not likely to be one of these) can melt in the appalingly humid/hot summers!

NO WAY!!!

Sharon - Not sheriff! I wanna be da Mayor! (that way I can order Sheriff Thigh-bone there around!) After all, what's he gonna do with a water gun? I figure if I pick on him in the winter, I won't even get wet!

I don't know what you're talking about Nan.  

Ok - So I have my option of being an ice cream vendor, running a newspaper (is that ok with you Nan??? ), and the snow blower... I'm not feeling the love people... the whole "peace and harmony" thing's not coming through... work with me here, work with me!!!  

Ok, Joyous Breeze (Isn't that another word for "blonde?"), got a question: Can I make love AND war???

Chris~~~Are you afraid of a little cold weather??It is just perfect here. The winters could get really cold but havent in awhile. And the summers gee I wouldnt even call this past summer a summer. It wasnt to warm.

Nan~~~The snow is so beautiful. Thats the best thing about the winter. And we have lake michigan here (and theres sand)! So you could have your beach. Plus we have downtown!!With so many different things to do!!

LR, I've been looking at places in the area you told me about. There is something interesting...a small town called Hog Valley. Not very appealing, but we could change it I suppose. But aren't there a lot of bugs there? Will you take care of those for me? Thanks!

I lived in Great Lakes (about 40 miles north of Chicago) for a bit over two years. I lived right on Lake Michigan (Yes, that lake so full of sewage that you're afraid if you swim in it, your skin will begin falling off your body.) The first winter I was there, temperatures got as low as 52 degrees BELOW zero.   Yes, yes, yes, it was due to a wind chill factor - WHO CARES?!!! That's still @%$#%$@ COLD!!! Then the summers - Hey, I LOVE the heat... just not when it feels like you're taking a shower outside!!!

Hmmmmmmm...

I MIGHT just be able to make it you know...I am after all ONLY 6000 miles away - but that could be remedied, that could be remedied...

Ok, let's say for now it is and I am stuck in the snowy part of California (which strikes me as highly oxymoronic anyway).

I have the hippy hair already (and hippy sunglasses too..I'm on a roll!)

Sweetcharity reporting for duty (blech...)

If we are indeed keeping cows and whatnot - any volunteers for the 4am milking? Nan's out - I could be persuaded - depends on the incentives. (I know a nice way to keep my feet warm in winter...doesn't SMELL particularly good tho...hmm yes).

Poertree oops I mean Philip of course - if you get to be the sheriff I get to - in all my Sweetcharityness - (after I come in from milking that is) wake everyone up at 6am for the daily Poetic Inspiration March, followed by synchronised swimming lessons at 7am.

This will be enforced - won't have any slackers here!!!!! You have to work to reap the benefits! Old school, old school!

(Hey - I will be providing milk...be nice...)

(Sheriff Tree, I swear on the graves of my ancestors to faithfully hold Mayor (snicker) C down while you squirt him - this can also become a happy daily ritual...)
