Friday Five: Location Location Location

My daughter, her husband, and their toddler, Trinity Ann, are moving from Minneapolis, Minnesota to our place. It's a long story, but the short version is that they will be loading a Ryder truck on Saturday, and on Sunday afternoon we will unload it into a storage unit in our town. They will move themselves, their two cats and their BIG dog into our place. Yes, there will be issues, but this Friday Five isn't really about that. (Prayers for jobs for them and patience for all of us are most welcome, however.) This post is about locations. My husband has lived at 64 addresses in his life so far (16 with me) and he suggested the topic since we have moving trucks on our minds.
Therefore, tell us about the five favorite places you have lived in your lifetime. What did you like? What kind of place was it? Anything special happen there?

If you have lived in less than five places, you can tell us about a fantasy location.

Here are the instructions to create a link to your post.. Copy and paste the following: <a href="the url of your blog post goes here">what you want the link to say goes here</a> For a complete how-to, click here.

  13. I don't think I HAVE five favorite places. But I'll share what I have at my place .

    And -- bonus for visitors -- you can help me brainstorm ideas for some short-term schooling for a career change that will "work," literally, in rural America.

  23. I moved my butt and played

    I really hate moving. Or rather the preparing to move. The thought of having to pack up this house almost makes me wish for a career in one charge... (he says as he tries to find time to travel to a job interview)

  24. "I'm a movin' on up,
    To the east side,
    to a DEEEE-luxe apartment
    in the sky..."

    No, you won't find George Jefferson at my place, but you will find my play. Have a great weekend!

  28. I played today. I've had lots of moves that have gotten me new street addresses, but not a LOT that have changed towns - - at least not as an adult. Anyway, it was fun!!!
