Pros and Cons of Small Town MI

Pros:
1.We have a yard and a porch swing!
2.There is a local coffee house/ice cream parlor
3.Great running/biking/rollerblading/walking paths all along the river!
4.Live near the newly redone beautiful local library branch--2 stories of glass look out onto the river
5.We have a fireplace and beautiful woodwork
6.We have air conditioning
7.There are hashes near-ish to us
8. Have improved proximity to Em & Kari by 50% (now we are one day's drive instead of 2).
9. Have improved proximity to parental units by 33 1/3 % (now 2 day's drive instead of.... anyone? anyone? ..... that's right, 3 days)


Cons:
1.The people down the street have a lawn jockey in their yard
2. coffee house is replete with Moose paraphernalia (spelling?!?)as opposed to pierced vegans and rastafarians like the Someday Cafe in Davis Square
3.miss my friends from Boston area :(
4.Live within 1 hour drive of every relative in Rob's entire extended family
5.Still days-o-driving from my family and friends. arghhh.

At least small towns haven't picked up that big city phenomenon of drive-by shootings yet.

Good idea! If anyone asks what we're doing, we'll just say that we're on our way to the weekly Michigan Militia meeting, and we thought that the lawn jockey was a real black person....
The stupid crackers will TOTALLY buy that.

I know there was some "discussion" about whether or not to put out an American flag at the new homestead, and I gotta tell ya, I think you should go for it. I can't think of a better cover for nefarious lawn jockey activity than having a flag. Think of the things you will be able to get away with because, come on, that nice young couple down the street with the American flag would NEVER be suspected!

Dawn's right, Amy. The flag is the PERFECT cover.....

I like how stupid crackers believe everything you tell them. I have convinced a few of them that only people who love the terrorists don't support affirmative action.
