Well, the train ride was long and tedious, but Missouri is a very beautiful, friendly state...I call it America's best kept secret. The mountains, the smiles, the cleanliness, the beauty...I would live here and like it. It is a lot like where I live but with better weather. And it is nothing like the busy, rushed feeling I had in Chicago and the burbs. Bart has been great. He has grown up so much. Really nice house. I will be able to amuse myself here when he works with internet access, a 66" screen TV, movies out the wazoo, long walks up and down the hilly sidewalks and coffee on the deck out back. The yard is funny...it's big, but it slopes, like so much of up-and-down Missouri. I love no smog. My grandson made a phone video just for me and I can't wait to see him Wed. He will be here five days in a row. Just checking in.
