The joy of living in a rural area can also be a pain.

Here we enjoy lower prices on gas, food, and lodging. However, everything here requires a car, especially one that works. And mine diceded to take a break. So once again I am longing for public transportation that large metropolitan areas depend on. Funny thing is that walking has become a thing of the past in this rural area. I went for a walk yesterday afternoon to get a cup of coffee from a local bagel shop and did not see many people on the streets. It seemed like a ghost town without the tumbleweeds rolling down the street. Now it is raining. I don't mind singing in the rain, but would rather not walk in it.
