City, country ,town, suburbs,rural? and why?
Small town, and the one where I live is pretty darn good. I like hunting and fishing (we have family, public, and walk-in public hunting/fishing here). I also like the low cost of the local golf club. We have state of the art medicine available. I'm an hour from Topeka or St. Joseph (mid-size cities) for more variety in buying goods and groceries. I'm 90 minutes from Kansas City, Lawrence or Manhattan (for college sports watching), or Lincoln or Omaha. The cost of living is lower. Its safe to leave my keys in my truck and it will still be there when I come out. Concealed carry is legal. I perform at times, and there are three community theatre groups within a short distance and one performing arts council. . .
It has touches of sophistication, and in June, I'm less than a five minute walk to a wheat field. . . I'm a country boy at heart that's somewhat intellectual and sophisticated. . . if I move further away, how will I ride horses or own them again someday? :) (And, for those wondering, there are PLENTY of places to catch Mass on a weekend---the old country parishes are still operational here, because Nemaha County, in 2002, had more Catholics per capita than ANY other county in the USA).
Its a Wonderful Life here in Bedford Falls, Kansas.
