HI Wave

I am not far from you – East on Route 50 about an hour and 15 minutes – near Clarksburg WV.

Dede

If common sense were truly common, wouldn't there be more evidence of it?

I realized I've never told you all where I come from and where I've been, although Suzanne has said a little.

 I was born in Parkersburg, WV, lived there three days and went home to Spencer. Went to college 16 years later in Elkins, then Morgantown (both WV). Since then lived in Shepherdstown, WV, Winchester, VA, San Francisco (CA), Alum Creek, South Charleston, Nitro, Winfield, St. Albans, Charleston (all WV), and now Stringtown, fairly close to Suzanne----14 miles from Spencer. (And plan on dying in Stringtown----tired of moving.  And yes, I'm feeling okay--------)

YesWow ...some of us like 52 really get around! I was born in Manitoba Canada...(straight north of North Dakota)...lived most of my life in the mountains of British Columbia Canada (north of Washington State) and moved to Kansas 10 years ago. My hubby (born and raised in Wichita) and I lived in Wichita for 9 years...then last year we bought a beautiful Victorian home on the edge of Halstead Ks. Only lived there 9 months before the country called us and we bought our little 5 acre farm this June. I moved back to the prairies...just a little further south! I love being here...love Kansas...love the US of A and I love the fact that I'm finally living my dream of living on a farm!!!Fork

Good Morning Everyone!

I live outside of Houston, Texas and have for 18 years but I'll always be a West Virginian…I can be out of the hills but the hills cannot be out of me. I was born in a two-room house on top of a mountain (well maybe it was just a large hill) and I spent the next 18 years in the same county (Summers) until leaving for West Virginia Tech (yes, I know the name is different now). I met a Texas boy when I was working for Charleston Newspapers and six months later we were married. We now have four children and four grandchildren. We've lived  in WV, Florida and Texas and hope to eventually find a summer place in wild, wonderful southern WV (maybe on the Greenbrier River?).

Where I'm from is a sight different from where I've lived and where I am, now.

I'm FROM Servia WV, smack-dab in the middle of West Virginia (such a weird-shaped state does have a middle!).

I've lived also in Kentucky, Ohio, New Mexico (Carlsbad, in the desert, YAY!), Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, and Alabama. Now in coastal Mississippi.

Last time I lived at home where we might have "Chickens in the Road," we had an ole pet crow that rode on Mom's shoulder to the barn when she went to milk the cows. Then, ole Crow would stand patiently across the stalls from where Mom had the cow's head in the stanchion so she could milk. Crow was waiting for Mom to point the cow's teat toward him and send him a stream of fresh warm milk. When that milk came flyin' at ole Crow like a bat out of hell, ole Crow just stood there and let that milk splash all over him as he caught all he could in his wide-open beak.

Now I live in an apartment in a well-populated area. I don't have any chickens or crows. However, I do have three turtles/tortoises that come to my area of the back yard every day for me to bring them some food to eat. They'll eat anything fruit, vegetable, bread/cereal, cooked or raw. One turtle even will come from the fence boundary straight up (20-25 feet) to my patio if I stand there and wave my hand with some food.

Lots of country-type living abounds in the city for those who seek it out and work to have it in their lives.    Turtle   Turtle    Turtle

I was born in Jesup, GA and moved to Buckhannon, WV when I was 11 for about a year and then on to Philippi, WV until I was about 22. From there I moved to Enterprise, AL and married my DH and we became a military family.

I am currently sitting in Seoul, South Korea. Even though I am in one of the largest cities in the world I still feel like a country girl when I read what's going on over there at the farm.

Hi ! I'm new to this forum. I live in Cabot,Pa. About 30 miles north of Pittsburgh on a family farm that has been in the family since the 1800's. We have 40 acres and we raise black agnus. Love the cows and we have guineys and 1 chicken called "Henrietta". We have been fixing up the homestead,slowly and have dug  for a water garden which I hope to finish in the spring. I have hundreds od daylilies and they are so beautiful when they bloom in July.  Hope to do some landscaping when I get my porch finished this spring.Alanna  "The Farmer's Wife".Hello

We live in California's Mother Lode area of the Sierra Nevada foothills. We like to call it "God's Country" - as we love it so. If we have to travel down in the valley to the cities, we can't wait to get back up here.
It is a very historic area, and we have a lot of fun exploring it and all the little towns here.
We live on one acre, and though we don't own any animals, there are lots that hang out here.....a covey of quail in the berry bush by the back fence, lots of birds that keep my feeders busy, coyotes in the field next to the back fence, hawks and owls (who keep the gopher and mole population down, but haven't seemed to hurt our quail numbers), rabbits and squirrels, and probably a raccoon or two, as they sometimes raid our neighbors cat food dishes. Oh, I forgot the deer - they love to snack on my garden and fruit trees!
Someday, I would like to have chickens, and maybe some pets, but will have to wait until we quit traveling so much.

It is so nice to "meet" all of you and hear all about where you live. Wave

I was born two weeks late, in Murphy North Carolina.  No I'm not a "Tarheel"...my blood runs gold and blue!  Mom and I moved from NC when I was two back to her home in West Virginia.  I've been here pretty much ever since, and I don't plan on leaving!

I attended college at, you guessed it, WVU for two semesters, and the birth of my first nephew, caused my husband and I to move our new family back to the mountains, where we felt safe....Morgantown is no place for babies!  My only nephew was born in our apartment conviently located directly down the street from Ruby Memorial Hospital.  My wonderful husband rescued Isaac from the toilet after his mother, my seventeen year old sister, gave birth (no one knew she was pregnant); without Don, Isaac surely wouldn't be here....nor would I!  But the baby is a thriving, intelligent, loving little man, whom we affectionately call "Bub".

I feel confident that West Virginia will be my last home...I just can't get her out of my system!  This state has some of the most lovely people; this site has some lovely people also....thanks for having me!Wave

Hi Ya'll!  Am I the first Arkansas Hillbilly on here?  I live in northcentral Arkansas in the foothills of the Ozark Mtns.   I've lived here all of my life except for a couple of brief ventures outside the state.  I'm a widow who still longs for the real farm life.  I only have 2 acres, 12 chickens, 2 rabbits and 7 cats left since my husband passed away five years ago.  I love to garden and cook.  I have a grown son and a beautiful 6 year old granddaughter who is just darn near perfect.  She would rather be at my house than anywhere in the world, and like me, she loves the farm life.
