  •  In my experience IF is a lot more conservative (2+ / 0-)

    than Poky. It's cleaner and prettier, but more religious and conservative.

    We were in Ammon not long ago and, holy crap, it's about 95% Mormon.

    I've slowly learned to love Poky. I used to hate it and refuse to even visit, but I've gotten a softer spot in my heart for it. I didn't even realize that it's kind of pretty until a year or so ago.

    P.S. I am not a crackpot.

      I lived 20 miles north in small town Rigby.

      Spent 27 years there. . .Nice little place that suited my sometimes hermit -like style.  Of course I worked in IF so I was out and about plenty enough for my taste.

      There were enough opportunities to meet others and party in "The Falls" or "Pokey" but I much preferred my living 5 miles out in the country from the "thriving" little town of Rigby. . .pop 3600.

      My partner and I live in OMG small town Wyoming now, population 250-300 on 20 acres of sage brush and high mountain desert. . .just how we like it.  We are literally 30 miles from anywhere in any direction.  She works in Cody, which is 30 miles SW.  We are only 65 miles from Billings, MT which is a pretty big town as these things go out here. . .150,000 or so.

      Glad to see you are still writing really good stuff.

      Hugs

        I was thinking about you as we drove through eastern Idaho, actually. I didn't know you'd moved to WY, I thought I should have sent a kosmail and had a cup of coffee with you or something.

        Next time we go to WY I'll stalk you online until you agree to meet me :-) GF was just in Cody a couple weeks ago. I haven't been there since I was ten or so. But I love the MT/WY region- it's beautiful.

          I would love to have a cup a joe or whatever with you and your GF anytime anywhere I am near.

          Be sure and do it. Your GF could sure give me a holler too if she is in the area again.

          It will be fun to meet up.  All the Kossacks I've had the pleasure to meet have been just great people.  

          Looking forward to seeing you.

          Hugs
