    That's awesome. Wish I could do that. icon_biggrin.gif


    Sure you could! I on the other hand really love where we live but plan on spending the month on January or February in Hawaii on day.Probably when the kids are off to college. The timing is rather bittersweet.

    About 10,000—maybe more. I grew up in Omaha and now live in Australia.


    My family loves Omaha's zoo. It really is one of the USA's finest!

    The kids want to go to Australia next year for their winter break. We'll see. Not sure I wanna be in the air that long just for DD to get tan lines. icon_lol.gif


    Oh wow, it is so nice to hear you say that about Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo.
    It is a fabulous zoo, and do you know what really kick started its growth?

    Years ago they wanted to build a new place for the big cats. They had
    a huge ad campaign with hats, t-shirts, TV commercials, you name it.
    And the slogan was --- are you ready to hear it????????

    SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CAT HOUSE!

    They got so many contributions that the extra money got the rest of it going.

    As for your kids coming to Australia. If we are in Canberra (the national
    capital) we are always happy to show people around --- even have them to
    stay if all the beds aren't already full. We had five house guests last week
    and four of them have a strong link to Zaar. Four to five guests at a time is
    our limit -- otherwise out of beds. icon_smile.gif

    I grew up in Upper Michigan. Moved about 180 miles away to lower Wisconsin. Lived there 7 years. Moved back " home" in 1995. Been here ever since. My house is currently 4 miles from my childhood home. My Mom still lives there.

    I grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, and I live in the city of Toronto. I like that all my kids live in Toronto as well, but it is big enough that no one know your business.

    Hometown is Kearney, Missouri home of Frank & Jesse James (outlaws not the modern day jerks). Now we live 23 miles from there and some days, it's not far enough. We moved up here wanting to keep the small town values we grew up with and a better school system for our sons.

    Smart choice. We kind of do that - live in the house next to the one I grew up in during the summer and 700 miles south in the winter. Best of both worlds.

    I'm only about 4 blocks from the house I grew up in. I have lived several other places but eventually ended up back here.

    Me too Okra... less than a mile. I like it here, lots of the people I grew up with have stayed close by too. Hubby grew up IN Philadelphia... which is about 20 or more miles...

    Connie, I basically ran away from my Lake Erie home when I was 40...I stopped in La. on my way to see my parents in Fort Myers FL. They did the north, south thing too. Liked it here, met my best friend, so here I am. icon_biggrin.gif

    Wow, how cool is that little tidbit of history! I though "Mutual of Omaha" with Marlin Perkins had something to do with it's inception.

    And WOW WOW WOW are you a fab friend to open your home up to Zaar travelers. If we decide to go (all about timing ya know) I will let my Zaar friends know. It's all very iffy right now.

    I am about 125 miles away, however; we bought a "vacation" house just a couple of miles from the one I grew up in - and we plan to retire there. We go for the weekend quite often. Small town - we love it.

    I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, moved around the USA a bit while Bill was in the air force, and now have settled down outside of Cincinatti Ohio where we have now been for about 20 years. So that's over 300 miles, a good day's drive.
    I would have loved to have lived abroad either in Europe or Asia but it looks less and less like that will ever happen. It's Newton's law in action. icon_lol.gif

    You are absolutely right. Marlin Perkins had a lot to do with getting the zoo
    going, but it was the Cat House campaign that made it huge.

    We open our home to lots of travellers. We've had 27 exchange students
    over the last 13 years. Some have stayed with us for a year. Quite a few
    have accounts here.
