I know what the country is, thanks. I have seen Deliverance, too. You don't play the banjo, by any chance?
Hahaha, I live about an hour or so from where they filmed "Deliverance."
I can't even play a radio good. My Dad could play a banjo, though, and so can several other people around here.
One thing I have discovered is that a lot of people think they live in the country until they come out here. When I say country, I don't mean suburbs
or sub-suburbs... I mean country
. We still have wells for water and septic tanks for sewage. There are no 'services'... an ambulance takes 15
minutes minimum to get to us, and the police will arrive within 30 minutes if someone is dying. The game warden has to ask for permission to patrol
the land. I have never heard of "cat rescue people" outside a city... heck, in the closest city to me, if you drop kittens off at the shelter, they
just kill them as soon as you leave. The local Humane Society will (and has) tell you to kill any kind of dog if it sounds at all dangerous.
We live on our own... no services, no excuses, precious few other people.
You may think you live in the country, but from everything I am hearing, it's not the same thing I live in.
