I spied....

a Nevada license plate in my parking lot.

In the past, Texas has seen a great influx of movers coming in from Michigan, Ohio, and the upper east coast primarily. Well, California too from the West coast.

However, recently I have seen many more License Plates from Utah and Nevada. I wonder why that is???

My Utah neighbors keep to themselves pretty much but state that they were moving away from the cold weather there.... and my neighbors from Nevada are a hoot.... she is a stay at home Mom with 3 children and he is a drama teacher at a private school here in Austin.

Just really relaxed tonight before the influx of work I will be tending to in the next couple of weeks and my inquiring mind is being a little silly tonight.....but inquisitive all the same, as per usual.

I have been slowly migrating from the computer so very much and getting to know my neighbors a little more these days, as well as blogging away on some alternative sites.

Hope that you all stay well...
and enjoy life....

Moving forward....and looking back only to remember the good memories....

keithcancook - You aren't even kidding!!! I am sure the sense a degree of normalcy in the things that they do in SOUTH Carolina; North Carolina is, on the other hand, much more "normal".

Insofar as blogging here, I will as long as AdultFriendFinder will allow me to continue. Without having paid for my membership as of yet, it is a royal pain to update blogs here and/or comments as a non-paid member.

Odd things occur in South Carolina. What you observed is natural to them.

I hope you will continue to write blogs here too...

Funny you should mention that, five_speed! I once moved away from Texas (OMG!!!) and lived in South Carolina from 1994 - 1997. While I was there I was so confused by their customs....

pig pickin's / oyster roasts/ crab bakes

BBQ = shredded pork??? What happened to the beef ribs??? etc???

but, the one that got me the most....

was when it was raining....

everyone -- I MEAN EVERYONE -- was pulling on the side of the road.

I would be busy turning my radio dial to find out if I was missing out on something....

was there a tornado coming???

a hurricane???

why was everyone "hiding" on the shoulder of the road.

I never did figure this one out. Funny thing is.....

if you drove up the road any where from 1-5 miles,

it probably wasn't raining....


there they sat in their cars on the side of the road in the rain!!!


ps. If you are reading this and are from South Carolina, please, oh, please explain this to me!!!

slightly off topic, but sorta related, when I moved went to Virginia Beach to start my new job last year, I noticed that about 2 out of 3 cars had vanity plates with all manner of silly stupid crap on them. I mean, it was CRAZY. I asked around to see if i could see if there was a city-wide inside joke or something, but no one was aware of any general reason. I never saw so many in one place in my life.
