Your hometown isn't far from my mom's, Michigan City. I went back through there earlier this year, I can see why you moved, but I'm sure it wasn't always like that...

You are right, that area, Porter County is not like it used to be. My mother is still in Portage in a nursing home and I was up there this past Sept. I still have classmates and friends and relatives who still live up there and keep in contact.

I was born in Ft. Lewis, Washington -- in an Army hospital.

 

Moved to Irving, Texas when I was 2. My grandparents had to move from AZ and was "placed" in Irving because my grandfather was in the witness protection program (no joke; but all is well, now). As a result of my grandparents moving to Irving, my parents (as well as the rest of our HUGE family) decided to move there, also.

 

I moved to D'ville (on my own) in July of 2001 and met my future wife. Got married in '02, then moved back to Irving, in '03 only to return (and purchase a house) in Dec. of '08.

 

And if I have anything to do with it, and I think I do, I intend to stay here! After all, having to go through Customs coming into GA is a PAIN! glare.gif wink.gif

Born in Atlanta but we lived in Austell, and in 1983 when I was 3 years old, we moved to Paulding. My husband and I moved to Rockmart (still Paulding) three years ago and I'm ready to get back to civilization, aka, Hiram. When we moved to Paulding in '83 there was nothing in Hiram. Even when I was a little older I can remember having to go to Dallas to go grocery shopping, and Cumberland was the closest mall. I'll never forget how exciting it was when Kmart was built. :rolleyes: All of my friends from church called Hiram the boondocks and now most of them live here.

Yes!! I just Googled Winfield after I typed my post on here, I had never really looked anything up about the town and knew nothing about it since we moved when I was so little. There's a pic of Central DuPage Hospital and I showed my daughter, she thought it was cool to see where I was born!

 

I like your vette, that's another thing we have in common. I don't have one but grew up with them and learned to drive a stick in one!

Born in D-ville cause you know they don't know nuffin about birthin' babies here in Paulding County. I was raised in Hiram, then moved to D-ville in 2002 when I married hubby (Z29media). Then we moved to Irving, Texas in 2003 and came back to Dallas last December. We bought a house and we are here to stay!

 

My family actually goes back all the way before Paulding County was even a county. I have documents where my family received land in the Dallas/Hiram area in the land lottery.

I'm originally from Savannah,GA, went to high school in Augusta,GA. I don't count the places I lived while in the military, too many to name, I went back to Augusta before deciding to move to Atlanta. I ended up in Vinings 6 years ago and was more than happy to move to Dallas recently. My wife is originally from Kalamazoo,Michigan and loves it here in Dallas.
