MountainBiker, thank you for a very peaceful story, even if it does only exist in a handful of tiny, out-of-the-way places across the nation. Oh that we could clone such a place a sufficient number of times and place them all adjacent to one another, and then secede. At least some of us here are old enough to remember your current experience as simply “normal.” And like beloved but deceased close friends and relatives, it’s nice to spend time every now and then reflecting on how it was. I’m doing my best to not sin today by coveting my Vermont neighbor’s property. Thanks.
