There's no place like home...There's no place like home...
Come on, now, that sign is funny as hell. The town of Gettysburg might be small in populace, but it seems to be big in humor, and I might just be calling it home in the very near future.
The hubby and I are going on a little trip next week to visit this town. I Googled it, and was surprised to see just how small it was.
The town I'm living in at the moment has a lot of similarities to Gettysburg. Our town has signs near the lake that states, "Best town by a dam site." Yeah, that's because the lake is dammed. LOL
The schools are small in Gettysburg, and there isn't a mall as far as the eye can see. The nearest book store is over 100 miles away (SOB!!). Guess that will increase my writing time, if nothing else. Lots of corn fields, cows and...wait...wonder if there are lots of cowboys? *Pondering* Sorry, got off track there. The only thing that really freaks me out is the fact that SD gets tornadoes. Not too thrilled about that. And apparently they get more snow than we get here, which boggles my mind. I'm not into being a snow bunny, and for those who know me, that's a serious understatement.
Anyway, I'll be gone most of the upcoming week, but I'll be sure to take a lot of pictures of...the corn fields?
Chin up! I'm sure they have lots and lots of fun stuff to do there.
See...they have a beach. And their website says that the fishing is great!
They have the Gettysburg Country Club...sounds fab. On June 6th they had bingo at the Country Club, and served ribs, cheesy hash browns and salad. Yum!!
I know what you're thinking - I'll never survive. I must have a bookstore. A mall. Starbucks.
S'all good. I'll find out more on Tuesday, when the hubby and I snoop around. In all seriousness, I'm excited about going. I'm conditioned to love moving. I spent 12 years as a military wife, and I'm feeling restless...I've been in Michigan for quite some time now.
It's time to move on.
If only they had a Barnes & Noble, though. :)
