  1. Three of those TV shows I’d never even heard of. I agree with you about Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Somehow, though, I’ve never watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” from start to finish. I need to rectify that this holiday season.
    I’ve never lived outside of Texas. I have been to Iowa a couple of times and think it’s beautiful. I love farm country. I love seeing tilled fields and crops growing.
    How many of you who are readers here have lived outside your home state? If so, where all have you lived?

  2. I was born in Jonesboro Arkansas and deported to California before I was one year old. I have lived in Riverside, San Bernardino, City of Orange, Anaheim, Trabuco Canyon, Laguna Hills, Mission Viejo, Pomona, Rancho Cucomonga, Ontario, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Lido Island, San Diego, Mission Bay, Mission Beach, Imperial Beach, Yucaipa, Redlands, Torrey Pines, Barstow, Fresno, Sacramento, Redding, Anderson, and Red Bluff all in California. I have also had homes in Las Vegas and Laughlin, Nevada; Phoenix, Bullhead City, Lake Mead, Golden Shores, and Topock, Arizona; Nogales, New Mexico; Beaumont, Texas; Guayaquil, Ecuador; and Balanga, Phillipines. I have never been anywhere in Iowa…
