I cannot imagine WHY I am here. Every winter I walk around flapping hands and stomping feet (to keep warm) and asking myself WHY , why!
The west coast is lovely should you ever want to be a Canuck. Only 1/4 of the year is winter and much milder at that.
I was born on a farm, chasing chickens and riding bareback as a wee toddler. I suspect prairie is in my DNA. :)
