We just returned from a lovely vacation to our beloved home-lands of Utah & Idaho.
We currently call California our home-land, which we love too.
There are just a few, minor differences between Utah/Idaho & California.
Here you have it:
U/I: people play with toy guns & even haul REAL guns around in their trucks
Cali: dare I say the 3-letter word near another human, I will soon be under investigation
U/I: we heard & saw freight trains all throughout the day
Cali: we hear & see sirens all throughout the day
U/I: we went swimming & I was NOT the whitest lady in the pool
Cali: we went swimming a couple weeks ago & I WAS the whitest lady in the pool
U/I: I saw about 15 gals, my age or younger, walking their children in strollers within a 15-minute span
Cali: I see 15 different folks walking their dogs within a 15-minute span
U/I: our nephew ran around in a hat that read "NRA"
Cali: you better hope you have a bodyguard if you say those 3 letters in that order
U/I: I took Avy to the playground at a baseball game. NONE of the other children had parents nearby. At all.
Cali: CPS will likely be alerted if you are more than 20 feet from your child.
U/I: Tyler went fishing, fixed sprinklers, worked on tractors, golfed, rode 4-wheelers...
Cali: the only outdoor hobby he can muster around here involves climbing our brick wall in the backyard,
scaling the massive tree behind the brick wall,
& sawing down some tree branches.
Oh, let's not forget the branches got caught in telephone/electric wires and he had to shake them to get the branches to fall.
That's totally safe.....right?
