No way, Carol! I had thought you were an Aussie!
As of July 5, 2019 I'll have been in Philly for a decade. I am, however, planning a move to a greener, less urban area and Lancaster is calling my name!
Yes, I have heard about H. Hospital closing up. (Not trying to spell that one!) I'm in Fitler Sq for the last almost 9 years. Not far enough from the refinery that almost exploded last week and is now being closed down. (Add another 1000 out of work.) I've observed the city's barometer increasing in the last decade and it's time to abandon ship.
It would be wonderful to meet up sometime but I know, though the distance is not long the voyage takes forever. My first year I lived in Mt Airy and was always walking the area with my standard poodle. We probably crossed paths a few times!
