Big city didn't impress this ole country boy. But neither did Washington DC or any other city I've ever been in.

I reckon I might struggle to go back to rural living after all this time.
City living works for me.

I'm just the opposite, I'm having a hard time justifying not retiring (money is always the issue I've used and going back to the farm. Though at the moment, a stubbord MiL is the real reason, son will be ORD'd from the Navy in around one month. But I reckon, once I've said enough is enough, I'll do just that. I love it when I do go back and don't see any humans or traffic for a week or more. Just sittin' on the dock with a fishin' line over the side and an isky of cold ones by my feet. (got around 1 km of deepwater shoreline in front of the homestead).

Although I'm not a huge fan of hot weather all year around, I do like the fact that the weather in Singapore only requires ONE wardrobe!!!

No bulky sweaters to take up space in the closet.
