Thank you everyone including newcomer to this thread, vrexy. I think we are going to get a place in a town and forego the farm produce business. I'm interested in getting back into hypnotherapy anyway, especially since I can't even stand worms, and mom and husband are on the way to being too disabled to work the ground. Maybe we can have a small patch, just for our own use. Maybe we need to get either in the very center of a small town or into a large town in order to avoid the snakes. Can anyone suggest an appropriate town within a 45 min. drive of the beach? We are wondering about Florence. It would be nice to be local to the train station because I'm not one to take a long drive alone and there could easily come a time when I need the interstate train. I would hate to pay outrageous taxi fare just for access to the train.

That was funny about the garden hose because all my life I have mistaken ordinary inanimate objects for things I have an aversion to. I think this happens to those who try hard to avoid things they feel we can't tolerate seeing.

Debbie, I will be contacting you again. Sherry

I know what you mean about the inanimate objects at times being able to freak you out before you realize what they are. I'm not particularly afraid of snakes, I just wouldn't want to step on one. For some reason, though, I really don't want a spider near me. At times, a leaf or something has fallen on me and I have a moment of pure panic, thinking it's a spider. I really don't like anything that has more than 4 legs! Four legs is my limit!

Since I'm new to this area, I don't know where any train stations are, but have you considered moving somewhere within walking distance to the beach? That's what we ended up doing and we love it. You might be surprised at how affordable some places are. Anyway, it's something to think about.

vrexy, yes, the problem's not just limited to sights, but feelings -- i hate when something lands on me and I don't know what it is -- always think it's probably something negative but usually it's not. We'd love to live near the beach but the less costly areas like MB city are higher in crime. Otherwise, we're limited because we need the open zoning and enough square footage to have a few renters, certainly in my own living unit, and maybe some other units (apartments or mobile homes). Mom would like to start an on-site eaterie and either she or my husband also need their own unit because they need "space" apart sometimes. Another thing I will need is taxi service because at any time I could end up with a dead vehicle and no one to help me. (I have very few family members I bother with, no children) I hope for the best but try to be prepared for the worst. I think we need to be open to many different areas due to our specific needs. If all we needed was a single home or a couple of condos, we'd have it a lot easier. Thanks for all your help.
