I was driving home from work today thinking about places I’ve lived.
Hawaii – two times (I was born there).
Texas – 5 times
Louisiana – 4 times
Florida – 1 time
Alabama – 1 time
Michigan – 1 time
I have to say, there is a certain spirit of Independence in Texas. At the same time, you aren’t on your own. My retired neighbor cuts part of my yard for me. He even pulls my trashcan to the road on Tuesday nights. I pull his back to the house on Wednesday when I come home from work. I won’t say I haven’t experienced some of the same anywhere else. But, I’ve always experienced it in Texas.
