Prompt for the Day: “City”

The apparently country born people at the Daily Post group of Word Press wants to be forewarned by our personal takes on the word “City“.

Music First!

Song was written by artist Glenn Frey of the Eagles.  Was used as the theme song for the T.V. show “Miami Vice”

Grew up in the middle of nowhere southern Illinois.  Cities were a foreign entity to me as a child.  Knew everything about everyone in the tiny area in which I lived.  Knew that one of our neighbors (few fields away) smoked marijuana.  Played with his kids periodically, since we went to school and rode the bus together.  Getting far away was a constant desire of mine.

Wanted to get away and earn a decent education far away as possible.  Unfortunately, the scholarship I won was for a college (thankfully in another state) that was only a few hours by car trip away from the dreaded place in which I grew up!  Was a bigger city than I was used to residing in, but not as big as I was dreaming of.

After completing college, moved with my husband back to the state in which I grew up, but in the Chicago-metro area this time!  Had finally made it to a big city!  Only lasted there for 18 months due to the high taxes and cost of gas there.  Relocated to the Denver Colorado area.  Another big city to reside in.  We actually only lived in a suburb called Aurora, but it was a beautiful place to live with great neighbors!  Stayed there for a little over 7 years.

Moved many more times with varying degrees of success.  Now we have permanently resettled to a state capital city of Minnesota.  Have no plans of relocating ever again, since this is the perfect city for me to live out the rest of my life in!

Please Help Fight Hideous Disease

The medicine my neurologist prescribed for me to treat my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
