    Oh, dear! What will happen to your squirrely friends? Will there be a clause in the contract that will require the new owners to maintain the lifestyle they’re accustomed to? Where are you going to move to? This sounds like an awfully drastic step to take if it’s because you don’t like your neighbors.

    At your new place, will you continue to have a webcam? How will we all know? You do realize that we rely on your charming pictures to get us through the day…

    Z I don’t know what will happen. I wish I could make sure they will be taken care of but I can’t. I’m going back to Oklahoma first but from there I don’t know. It’s not my dislike for my neighbors, that causing this move but the expense of living here. Our local electric company is raising my electric rates another 7 percent this fall. The cost of fuel to heat my home is beyond my income. I’m sorry but I can’t afford to live in Alaska any longer. I’m also sorry to say but the charming pictures I take don’t don’t pay the bills. As far as any place new, I don’t know if I’ll put the cam up again or not.

    I’m sorry if I seemed flippant, and I know it’s not because of the neighbors. Costs are going up all over. Chicago has raised it’s sales tax and it is now over 10%–the highest in the country. I’ve thought of moving as well, but I’ve got obligations here that I can’t really leave.

    Going back to Oklahoma will be a bit of a shock to your system, climate-wise. It will take a few years before you start thinking that 50 degrees is cold. I hope it will all go well for you. It would be great if you started another blog and hopefully the urge will overcome you.

    Please let your faithful readers know how things are going. I’ve got a feeling that you’d be surprised at how many people log in to see how you describe life in Alaska. It’s a little slice that stimulates imagination and dreams.
