      When I was growing up my family kept moving in a large triangle from Washington to Oklahoma to Arizona. We moved to each state twice. Since I’ve been out on my own I’ve lived in Washington except for a brief stint in purgatory, Lackland Air Force Base in Texas and almost four years in Omaha.

        I strongly urge people to give them a try.
