My morning newspaper just informed me St. Louis ranks as the second-worst city in both Men’s and Women's Health. Could that be a result of its number one position as the most violent city in the United States? And; if that is not bad enough St. Louis had 164 cloudy days last year.
We are a good fifty miles from that sad city. While our little piece of the world is a place where some folks still feel no need to search for house keys misplaced for decades: the recent statistics are coming just a tad to close to home for the comfort of my California husband. Me too if I were to be truthful.
The same article listed the best cities in the U.S. and three Texas cities were in the top twenty. One of them is also rated as the best city for retired military in terms of availability to health care and quality of life. No wonder the “Old Salt” has been working hard at convincing me we should consider the land of big hats and "howdy". Guess it is time I started giving it some serious consideration.
I'm asking all my wonderful Texas readers to enlighten us on what part of your fair state would be the best place for a pacific coast(China)sailor(who did not know that ice could be made outside of a refrigerator) and his arthritic wife who has to hibernate during the rainy mid-west seasons.
