when i got out of the marine corps the oilfield was shutdown and no one could afford to feed there cows because of a drought. found a good job here and have made a run of it for over 20 years now.
hope you like your new place.
my wife and i are talking about finding some land and she wants to look north and i want to stay below the mason dixon.
After 25 years of living in Miami, it was time to go!
Too crowded & very expensive !
My daughter got out of the navy and came to live in Killeen. She landed here because because the college she went to was in Belton and just stayed here after her graduation.
A couple of years of visiting her and next thing you know I officially retired and we decided to be near the daughter and grandson!
Life is sure different here compared to Miami!
Iím really looking forward to do a lot of cruising both in my bus and on my Harley, lots of wide open roads here !
Look me up if you ever back for a family visit!
