She passed away a few years back and is really missed. I took the time to research this and was in touch with the garden club there in Knoxville that she belonged to. Very sad.

Oregon. Affordable real estate in many places, if you stay away from the Portland Metroplex. Decent weather, long growing season. Little to no snow in the areas I've been considering. Plenty of rain and greenery if you stay on Oregon's right side. Which seems to be the left side (eg west).

No sales tax. Property taxes are somewhat high, but manageable. Seems like there are fewer HOAs to avoid.

And legal pot. Which means I would no longer have that as a reason to schlep myself to a doc to get my pain treated, nor have to worry about having to scare up a doc who will prescribe it, nor come up with the extra cash to pay out of pocket, doctors visits for said purpose not being on Medicare's list of approved services.

WA is a few yrs ahead of OR on Pot,

WA has Similar costs / climate and options. and NO STATE INCOME TAX! (that will save you some time and $$)

WA towns (affordable, west side, services) ... Vancouver, Woodland, Chehalis, Kelso, Olympia, Burlington, Mt Vernon, Lynden, Ferndale, Bremerton, Port Angeles

OR towns (affordable, west side (warmer climate), services)
Medford, Grants Pass, Roseburg, Sutherlin, Cottage Grove, McMinnville, Dallas, St Helens.

Check which area is best for you and needed services. Oregon has Terrible state fiscal policy, so I would not depend on state aid.

Meo,

You have a brother and sister-in-law living in Tennessee. Are they Southern Baptists?

Seriously, Knoxgarden mentioned that there were Wiccans freely worshiping in Knoxville. I'm guessing those crazy Lutherans would be welcomed, as well.
