Several years ago the wife and I watched a series of marriage enrichment videos. One of the catch phrases used by this particular presenter was, "It's not wrong--just different." Both of us have tried to live by that motto. Makes life go a lot smoother and eliminates a lot of the petty little things that could lead to a bigger issue.

Here in Dallas the only reason you'd need a fire pit would be to prove you have a defective brain. Our weather in the summer makes this seem like the waiting room for hell and the mosquitoes are so plentiful they need air traffic controllers. Glad you can enjoy a fire pit up your way.

Yes, it has changed and for the worse. Too many people, too much construction (concrete), too many vehicles and the resulting heat island effect has eliminated winter. For example last "winter" we had 3 or 4 freezes in Dallas (proper...not the suburbs). Now these were not deep enough to kill even tropical plants...meaning it got to 31 or 32 and that was it. Basically "capping inversion" means we now suffer high pressure domes all summer long and low pressure (which typically brings rain and cooler weather) skirts us heading off to Oklahoma or the middle of Texas.

My brother and some of Air Force buddies bought lots there with the intent to build when they retired but a lot changed with the makeup of the community where the lots were located so he sold his lots and I think the others did too.

Dallas would be a questionable choice for a place to retire, honestly speaking. At least for a thinking person it would be. I'd guess a person might reduce his/her retirement days by quite a bit doing that. For one thing the freeway system has become (over just the past 10 years) so complex and confusing it is no place for older people to attempt to drive. For another thing, the weather is horrible. Also it is basically an ugly, poorly kept and very flat place...not inspiring unless you really enjoy chaos and trash and sports teams which consider a 40 or 50% win season really and truly excellent. And finally there is currently almost no law enforcement. Pick a calmer and more sensible place which takes some pride in the community.
