    Those are some great pictures. No doubt a great camera too.

    Thanks for the virtual vacation Rat, sure enough looks beautiful there. It begs the question: why would you move to AZ and leave that behind?
  7. Nice photos. I was born in Bennington,Vt and raised in the northeast. It's very green and wet too. That's why I'm here in the west. I got lyme and this weather is easier on arthritis. And I still have an accent. It's not so bad anymore, people used to talk to me just for the entertainment value when I first moved to Colorado. That little squirrel is a Red Squirrel. Pound for pound one of the most aggressive and meanest little creatures you've ever met.
  8. M gardner - Yeah, I was born and raised in New Brunswick, Canada. I also lived in northern Maine for about 6 years. I still have an accent too.

    TD - moved here for love and money. :) My wife (girlfriend) was living here, and the lack of an economy back there made the decision easy...
  9. If I talk quickly or I'm real tired I revert to my old accent and folks can barely understand me. I had lost my job and after they paid me off I was on an extended vacation. My doctor told me to go west. A fellow at Rifle Gap campground offered me a job and I went to work at Sundstrand Aerospace in Grand Junction Colorado. That closed recently and I'm here because of all the aerospace work. I'm too old to work the oil and gas fields where I was.
