You could sell your yuppie house and move into Denton. Pretty nice small city, and more accessible people than what you describe in your neighborhood.
Also, if you don't mind a little drinking, I recommend the Eagles or Elks or Moose.
Close, but little further east. We looked at selling and moving to Denton, even found several nice places, but DW didn't like the drive to her current set of interests. Rush hour traffic on 35E is similar to rush hour on the 5 in SoCal, and the perpetual road construction just makes it worse. She hates to part with the known and familiar. Also, she has a continuing obligation as her mom (91) is till in Plano area, and she wants to be "relatively" close to her to assist her when, and as long as needed. Still in consideration though.
It may be a struggle, but I could be forced to not mind a little drinking
, so those groups definitely have moved up the list. May have to do some wildlife scouting this weekend, and see if I can find an antler bearing member.
Thanks for the tips and Goonie, I tried those links, I'll have to get some separation data about my dad, I've submitted the request.
