Results of the "Tell Me Where To Move" contest!

A little while back, I asked readers to mail me a postcard with the ZIP code of a US town, and I promised to immediately move to the town I selected out of a spinny wire "bingo ball"-type cage. Well, I did the drawing, and guess what?

Life is great here in Abilene, TX (79601)! I'm sitting on the front porch of my house, and it's kind of hot, so I don't have a shirt on and my laptop is making my lap warm, but that doesn't matter because my new neighbor Chamorro Jim just brought over a six pack of Coors! Chamorro Jim is a repairman, and he is one of 32 Guamanians or Chamorros who live here in town. He's 31.1, which pretty much puts him at the median age for us Abalonians. Anyhow, we have agreed to get a pizza later, at Domino's or Little Caesar. I think they're both on Walnut Street.

Well, that's all for now. Chamorro Jim is right, it's rude to type on a laptop when your neighbor is trying to drink Coors with you. I guess I'm just going to have to adapt my California ways, because I live in Abilene now.
