|The diner and train|
3. I can hear the train from my house. I like a distant train whistle in my world on a semi-regular basis.
4. I have wonderful next-door neighbors. The last three places I've lived, I've been blessed with better-than-good neighbors. That's something that you can't make happen.
5. "Some" people look down on where I live. It's a small town that is considered, by some in these parts, to be not the coolest town around. It was once a very blue collar mining town. It's the kind of place people fancy moving up from. Strangely enough, that makes living here all the more appealing to me.
BONUS: One thing I don't like: The freakin' firehouse sirens! C'mon guys, it's 2010. Put technology to work and ditch the sound pollution.
