Gene; I'm so glad that you will soon be at Heartwood for good. I feel the
same way, even though I'm still whittling away at the mortgage (my payment
is still cheaper than the average rent in the city). Not everyone thinks the
way we do, though. Some see our life as 'deprivation' if we don't have lots
of money and 'stuff' and someone to do the physical work for us. This life
is not for everyone.
