How's the zoo?
It's going strong. Right now they have electric critters for Christmas, I can see it from my house. I am proud of the fact Pueblo is one of only 3 Colorado cities that have a zoo!

You know, you're right, I didn't think about that until now.

In Washington State, where I am now I think the only zoos are in Seattle and Tacoma - both relatively large cities so Pueblo, being a relatively small city having a zoo is unique.

Ever been to Kansas? It seems like every city there from <1,000->350,000 population has a zoo

It's one of the cheapest (America's 100 Cheapest Places To Live - Forbes.com) and you know that Ft.Collins-Loveland is more expensive than Pueblo so...

Interesting list...

of course I could nt help that thgree other CO cities rated higher (meaning, better bargains) than Pueblo (#76)...
Ft. Collins/Loveland (9); Greeley (13); and Colorado Springs (42).

I have a hard time believing that the COL is lower in any of those places than in Pueblo, so who knows how they come about determining such misleading lists. At any rate, one thing is certain... Pueblo is fairly affordable for a city of its size.

I guess my response looked a bit flippant, but I'm really interested in how one can live on $625 a month. I am struggling to figure out a budget for two people on $2000 a month Social Security. All tips appreciated!

Thanks. Car insurance is another issue. I guess you could avoid it if there is good public transportation. Health insurance is a killer (no pun intended) for many of us. I hope all the fighting in Washington will result in something helpful for average people. All of the emergency rooms in the world can't care for the number of uninsured.
