Question for Yabbitgirl

Hi Yabbitgirl, I was reading another post and I saw where you said you were visiting your grandma (I think) in the Southern IL area.  I was just curious where in Southern IL, I'm originally from there!  Small world, huh?  Anyway, you can reply to this post or just send me a message!  It's always cool to find ties like that, Southern IL is a whole different world, is it not?  :)

I'm so nosy that I read Yabbitgirl's post!  :-[

I live in Hopkinsville, KY - not far from there.  I've been here for two LONG years.  How far am I from where you two are discussing?

I was visiting Louisville, which is a suburb of Effingham, which is a suburb of Flora! Such a small town they don't even have post office anymore, let alone a pharmacy. That was 10 yrs ago, actually 11. Went in to "the city of Effingham" to shop at Walmart and actually left my passport on the counter and didn't realise what I'd done till several hrs later! PANIC! See the yabbit being "talked down" by her 40 yr old disabled cousin who has the mentality of a child of 8..."Now, check your purse...It's not in your purse? OK, have you looked in your pockets? Empty your purse for me...OK, don't panic, we'll call Ben (his brother who lived next door.) Don't worry, Ben will fix it. I Promise." And, God bless him, Ben did. We didn't realise what had happened till after they were closed, but God bless the manager, they put my passport in the safe and when we called they said, "We were expecting you." They held it til the next day. I shudder to think what it would have been like trying to get a new passport before my flight 3 days later... :o

That's so weird, Effingham is just about 60 miles from my hometown.  I can relate!  I still live in So. IL but it's different because it's actually a suburb of St. Louis.  Small world! 
RobinMc, I'm not sure where Hopkinsville is at.  Is it close to Paducah?
