    Yep, my neighborhood

    And after a total of 64 years living within 10 miles of my birth place (actually 55 years, and still counting, within 3 miles of the hospital I was born in), I'm not leaving again. Twice we moved almost 75 miles away, way up North - within 40 miles of the Red River. I can't say for sure, but I think Carthage is close to 50 miles Southeast of me here in Stumpwater. And since it's been over fifty years to even think about it, I very well may have played football or run track against that old fart (respectfully ) from Carthage. I don't think I been through there in a year or so.

    I had the misfortune of going through high school up in the Panhandle. Yep, no one ever talks about it. The biggest thing that happens up there is the XIT Rodeo and Reunion every August.

    I've been up there a time or two. If that's where I was hatched, it's probably where I'd have stayed.

    Fortunately, I started life in the "other corner" of the Republic

    I dunno, many years ago I took my Son up to the panhandle to a ranch just south of Pala Duro Canyon for the High Power Rocketry Nationals. Neat trip, the nation wide contest that year was seeing who could launch a 16lb bowling ball to the highest altitude on an ammonium percolate "K" Motor...
    Fun times, spectacular launches, way up there, with the FAA clearance to 35 thousand feet.
    I have always said that I learned a lot on that trip.

    The thing that has stuck with me the most since then is this, "now I really know where the middle of nowhere is..."
    I was once asked if I was "a paranoid for carrying my Kahr".
    "Nope" I said, "just prepared".
    " prepared for what" he asked?
    "more stuff than you are"
    God Bless our Troups!

    That's where I long to live, "middle of nowhere".

    I also desired a kind of middle of nowhere existence, up a mountain side. Well, we just spent almost two weeks in the Smokies, looking for property, and “middle of nowhere” does have its down sides. The small towns were nice and made me less disgusted with humanity in general.

    I’ve been looking for a nice house in that East Tennessee area for 7 months. You get in those little East Tennessee towns and you do find something in short supply in people these days, good manners.
    The only thing better than having all the guns and ammo you'd ever need would be being able to shoot it all off the back porch.
