Without a doubt, Denny and I have enjoyed our time here in Cheney, Washington. We’ve played golf, done some sightseeing, hit the casino, checked out the local small towns and driven some of the back roads. We drove back to Coeur D’Alene and decided we could live there, at least in the summer. We’ve managed to fix and/or modify a couple of things that needed to be fixed on the Beast, making our life a little better. Patches took a lot of walks, some brief, some long and as always I heard “I’ve never seen a cat on a leash before!” Patches and I are working hard to change that for people!
I’ve enjoyed being outside where the fragrance of pine trees is strong in the air. It’s wonderful how clean and clear the air and local waters can be with a little effort (and perhaps a lot fewer people around.) There’s only one negative to the idea of eventually settling down somewhere up here and that is COLD/SNOW. Yeah, not fond of that idea. Surprisingly as we left Coeur D’Alene after our dinner cruise Denny said “I guess we wouldn’t have to go out when it snows…” Hmmmm.
But we still have six more states to explore and check off our list so it’s too soon to think of settling down. But we may just have to put this area on a new list…”places we where we might like to live—someday.”
