What city and state were you born it? Do you still live there today, and if so, have you always lived there your entire life? Where do you consider your hometown? Why I'm posting this blog is because there are a lot of people on here that seem to be proud from where they come from, and I'm no exception....well, let me put that another way, I'm proud about where I was born , but not actually my hometown. I was born in Jacksonville, North Carolina at a Marine base. Was only there for the first few months in my life till my father was discharged from service to where my parents moved back to Ohio. For the last 36 years of my life I have lived in Portsmouth. I still don't consider it my hometown, I don't want to claim it because in my opinion it's a cancer. Seems like nothing but bad stuff happens to people here, ya know, just like that "Appalation Triangle". I consider New Boston my hometown. Where were you born, and what's your hometown?

I was born in Valdosta, Georgia on Moody Airforce Base. We didn't stay long. My father was discharged, and we moved to West Georgia (a city called Carrollton) when I was only a few days old. I stayed in West Georgia until the age of 24 when I moved to Tennessee to be with the man of my dreams (whom I met online). I consider Carrollton, Georgia to be my hometown, and I miss it greatly.

I lived in New Orleans 1 year and Florida for 9 yrs.
Now I'm back home, and I am very proud to be from NC, it's a great state full of great people.
I'm proud to be Southern, period.

I was born in Stockbridge, GA (well, technically in a hospital in Atlanta) and moved around Gwinnett County throughout my childood, with all of my teen years in Lawrenceville, which I consider my home town. Basically, I've lived in the dirty south in the shadow of the ATL for the vast majority of my life.

I was born in Albany, Georgia at the Navy base. We moved when I was about 2 months old. I hadn't been back there til I took a trip to southern Ga. to visit my step-son a few years ago. The base where I was born isn't there any longer. I don't really have a "home" town. We moved a lot when I was a kid, Illinois is where i've been the longest.

I was born in Bluffton Indiana where my folks lived just outside the city limits. By the time I was ready for first grade, we'd moved further into the country about 10 miles from Bluffton. When I was 9 we moved to a small town called Liberty Center and most of my school years was there. All these places was within a 10 mile range of Bluffton.

My dad worked for the electric company and when I was 16, he was transferred to Decatur....20 miles from Bluffton. I HATED if for quite awhile...and for many years considered Liberty Center my hometown. Sixteen is a hard age to move away from all your friends and an area that was all you'd ever known.

Although I've taken "jaunts" to temporairly live somewhere else, I've been in Decatur for the last 48 yrs. This is my hometown and I love it here and have no desire to leave it.

This was an excellent blog straddle...I enjoyed so much reading the comments. For you..TWO Kudos....
