Moving back to Indiana

HAWKENHAWKEN Senior MemberPosts: 1,690 Senior Member
Since my physical problems and my wife, a/k/a TKOTCB having a mild stroke, living in the greenest state in the land of the free is no longer viable. I hate to leave, I live in a beautiful place on 27 acres of woods, full of deer, turkeys, squirrels and quail, but we have relatives there and medical facilities are top rated and much closer. The kids and grandkids are looking forward to our return to Logansport. We closed on a house yesterday and sold this place today, for our asking price. I regret that I won't be able to attend the SE shoot this year but I read somewhere, long ago, that the best laid plans of mice and men are often lead astray.........robin :confused:

    Sorry to see you go, but I'm sure it's probably for the best. Best of luck to you and yours, and if you happen to be back in the neighborhood for any reason, please stop by. It doesn't have to be a special occasion for us to enjoy the company of friends!

    Best to you Hawken and your family. Don't be a stranger around this forum.

    You are doing the right thing for you and your family. Enjoy the grandkids back in Indiana.

    Sorry to see you go, and will miss you at the Shoot. But your reasons for moving back are the right ones. If y'all ever find yourself around East TN, give me a heads up! :up:

    Best of luck with your move.
    I am sure it was a difficult decision, but for you and yours I am suremit is the correct one.
    We will miss you at the shoot, but lucky for us, you will still be able to continue to share your knowledge and experiences here

    Best wishes to you and your wife, I understand your reasons as I had to leave CO. for Fla. also for health reasons.

    Since I'm not familiar with computer jargon please tell me what TKOTCB means ?

    Take care of the wife, and enjoy the grandkids. My wife has peeps in Northeast Indiana, not far from where you will relocate.
    It's because I hate Trump.

    Best wishes.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    Sounds like a good move for you both Robin. It just means I have to drive a few extra miles to come and visit but it also means I get to see some new country..............Win Win all around in my view.
    Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    Robin you will be sorely missed at the shoot but you know that just gives you a reason to come here at least once a year, so don't be a stranger! Best of everything to you sir, you have been an inspiration to us all!

    Good luck on the move, Robin. Sorry we won't get to see you this year.
