    New Here From North GA

    I have to admit, I have been "lurking" on here for a few months! So shoot me! LOL I was a bookkeeper in the commercial construction business and just recently retired. My DH retired last year as a Travel Center Manager after a light stroke which resulted in a surgery. But he is fine now. I decided to retire the end of April because I was just tired of working! And I have not looked back one day! I have gotten a lot of inspiration from reading so many of your posts.

    Welcome from Oregon. I had to look up what DH means. I assume that's your husband.

    Thanks. Up by Salem. I live in the southernish part of Oregon Coast Range. How does GA compare? 47 years is a long time with one person. I've had three husbands in that amount of time.

    I grew up in Mississippi and we moved to OR. The coast line there is MUCH different from the gulf coast. I liked all the "rock" features but did not care for the cold waters. But I remember having fun looking for the glass bulbs (forgot what they called them) that would come from the fishing boats. I cannot imagine three husbands....to hard to "train" a new one ever so often! LOL

    Yes, the water is cold in the ocean here, the rocky coastline is wonderful. Did you ever make it to Shore Acres out from Coos Bay? It's spectacular when stormy. The waves crash into sandstone layers angled up from an earthquake three hundred years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhWsPf6TdgM

    The glass bulbs were from the nets of the Japanese fishing boats. They no longer use them.

    My first two were untrainable. I had to throw them back. The one I've been with for 25years didn't need training.

    Welcome from Scotland, Maggiemae! Before I moved here I lived just north of you in Knoxville.
