I'm in Kansas City, Missouri. Kansas City is home, but when hubby and I first married we lived in Texas for a few years. It was good to get back home to Missouri when the kids started arriving a few years later.
Debb: I know, I forget too I'm in California and have always been in California. We make almost yearly trips to Oregon. I remember awhile back Debb (gosh was it one year or two years?) you visited and I just missed your visit, leaving Oregon before you arrived! I think you got to meet Jo and Betty
...and tell me where you're from again? (or where you are now, at least LOL)
Thanks, Debb American, now living in Central England
