They think they live in the country...

but, it really can't count as such -- they are a 70 minute car/train ride from Manhattan.

The story relates tales of folks who moved out there, then couldn't stand the lack of "civilization" and "fled" -- back to the suburbs/city.

ummm--- yea. The complaint was that White Plains NY was 40 minutes away for shopping...

Super-mom's kind of country -- now, that's "country" -- 70 minutes in the car gets you close to Two Harbors, and leaves you about 50 minutes from Duluth. 40 minutes might get you Finland, MN --and a bit more will get you Ely, MN.

Funny thing is, a good number of folks up in Super-mom's area think Duluth IS "the city"... and "the cities", are just too much traffic.

I suppose it goes to show that everything is relative -- but, I still think the folks in New York state are kind of silly, and not really in THE COUNTRY.

Now that's country...

Ummmm, yeah, that is so not COUNTRY by any stretch of the imagination. But it's good to know where you belong, I guess.
