We've got enough wildlife in the backyard that we don't really need one inside. We have a three foot (yeas-really) garter snake that hangs out on a pile of stacked lumber, little Brown snakes that hang out in the gardens, at least two Lacertas that hang out on limestone slabs, Italian wall lizards that hang out everywhere...we live near a creek, so occasionally we see foxes around, there are dozens of raccoons that live in the sewers, red-tail hawks regularly steal squirrels, and I once found a Great Blue Heron snatching the goldfish out of my mom's garden pond. And we live in the middle of the city!

Awesome, my 4 year old nephew would be in Heaven there. So, is the "city" of Topeka really urbanized? I go to Salina, KS every year (family) and it is so bare in the farm country, and there are a few stores in the center of the town. McDonald's, Walmart, Sam's, a mall, and a few eating places. The city I live in (second largest in Georgia) is crammed with stores and buildings.

It is a city, not a town. Salina has a population of around 50,000, and Topeka has a population of about 120,000. Basically, if you double Salina, add a couple major highways, add another airport, and put me in, you get Topeka. Topeka is definitely much more urbanized than Salina, although when our house was built in the 1940s, our street was a dirt road, and the park at the end of the block was a dairy farm.

Sheesh, Salina's only a little over two hours from here! You should stop by! Granted, that would be "meeting someone in person that you have only met on the Internet," so we probably shouldn't do that in case one of us is a predator or a serial killer or something...

How did you know that?!?

Sounds cool. I hear that y'all have some good casinos over there, are they in the middle of town, or the outskirts?

No casinos in town, that would be against state law. There's a few up north on Highway 75, and some in Kansas City, MO, and a strip club on I-70, and anther one on Highway 40 that we used to drive past every day.... So are you a predator, or a serial killer, or a something?

Some days I think I married one *sigh*
. Oh man! If I ever get ahold of Mrs. Goodhart's e-mail addy, you are toast!!! You'll be sleeping on the couch 'til you have hair on top of your head. Might even send her the name of my lawyer friend downtown. heehee
I said "some days". I am sure she feels the same about me at times... :-)
