In about a month I will be moving out to where my brother and sister in law live in Indiana for maybe permanent residency.
Which means that I have to start fresh in a new country "hick" town of only 235 people, where the closest little town is maybe forty five minutes away...and the closest cracker barrel is forty eight minutes away.
My sister in law says that they also never leave home much...that is what bothers me.
As I like being able to drive maybe ten minutes to the grocery or fifteen minutes to my job.
I also being around PEOPLE.
My brother is the total opposite of me. He and my sister in law have been out in Indiana for ten plus years and while they love it (and mom will as well)...I for one am not so sure.
I mean what will I do for entertainment?...The casinos are out there...but, they all say to NOT spend money, so going to those places for an enjoyable evening is out.
Also what will I do for Christmas gifts from home?.
I can see it now...Christmas morn...all of us gathered round the tree...passing out gifts...I go to open mine...and I find...beef jerky...copies of field and stream...and a camouflage t-shirt.
That is what my brother wants me to be...is a carbon copy of him...another redneck, tobacco chewing, gun totting, racist (he hates Mexicans and blacks) country boy.
So I am in need of ideas that appeal to me for christmas gifts, remind me of Cracker Barrel and also of Mason, Ohio...my home.
Help me please.
