COOL.  Love the Anne of Green Gables books and just saw a new adaptation of the first book on Public Broadcasting last week.  I imagine you get told that all the time...people thinking of Anne when you tell them where you live.

SandyB - lucky you!  Your city got the new NHL hockey team, The Golden Knights, which we Canadians were hoping would be here.  Actually I would have liked to have had the team go to Quebec City, which is only about 5 hours from where I live, but the powers that be had other ideas :)

Goldilocks, I used to live in Nassau County in the 90's!  Do you feel comfortable naming your town?  I lived in Oyster bay and then Huntington Bay.  Born and raised in Connecticut though... ;)

Billie, I lived in CT for awhile, New Canaan area. I think we're going to find that this community is a small world after all, as the song goes.

New Canaan is lovely!  I lived in Stamford, not too far away from you.  It really IS a small world!  :D

Billie, I actually lived in rural Stamford, on the border of New Canaan (which I could have walked into). I walked regularly in the gorgeous arboretum in Stamford. I taught at an independent school in Stamford. The school campus is on the old Simon farm, as in Simon and Schuster publishers, and Carly Simon (whom I've met).

Yes. Lots of messages on Facebook asking Anne questions!  :D

It sounds as though you were in North Stamford near the Merrit Parkway? I lived in central Stamford and went to Stamford HS.  What did you think of Carly Simon?  I read her autobiography not long ago "Boys in the Trees' and liked it.

It was so long ago-- all I can remember is that I lived on Cascade Road. Carly Simon was very nice. I also liked Boys in the Trees, especially the parts where Simon talked about spending summers at the family farm. Many of the landmarks are still there, barns etc, and used by the school, which used to be called KLHT (King Low Heywood-Thomas) and now is just called King School.

Hopkinton, a small town in central MA.  We get to be famous once a year as the starting point for the Boston Marathon.

Palm Harbor, FL


Am I the only one from Arizona? 


HP, I lived in Palm Harbor almost 60 years ago; then it was just a dot on the map on Alt-19, between Tarpon Springs and Ozona/Dunedin/Clearwater. Had to walk to the P.O. for mail.  Lived right on Alt-19 in an old, old, old house that belonged to my inlaws.  I understand Palm Harbor is quite the town now!

I was born and raised in Hamilton-- and spent many happy summer Sunday evenings with my family at the Stoney Creek Dairy.

Sadly, the dairy has been gone for quite a while and a retirement home sits on the property now.  I also was born and raised in Hamilton and lived just west of downtown, then on the "mountain."

DianeM, thank you for your kind words.  I actually enjoyed the traveling and house hunting.  It was packing and unpacking all our stuff that was not enjoyable, even with the movers doing the actual work.  It didn't help that I was and still am, a packrat, LOL!

The dairy is gone?!  :'(  What are families going to do for traditions?
The west end and the mountain? Ha-- you were definitely part of the elite! I grew up in the industrial area of the city. They didn't call it "Lunchbucket Town" for nuthin'!  :)  I always say I was born and bred in Hamilton-- and I'm forged in steel!

Andy's Mom, have you SERIOUSLY lived in both Jacksonville FL and Jackonville NC?    That is WILD!!!   And speaking of Tallahassee, did you know that there is a Tallahassee, GA?    I think the population was like 65.   I fell out when I saw that, as I didn't think there was a Tallahassee in any other state!
