So, after a nice career with a SE Mass agency, in 2005 I moved to Mississippi, where I fell into a nice second career as a campus cop. But, all good things come to an end. Some time in the next 3 years or so it will be time to pull the pin again, collect another measly pension, and join the ranks of the retired. Not being all that much in love with Mississippi anymore, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I are looking at northern New Mexico or Western Mass. for our next move. Anyone here able to give some dirt on places like Franklin or Berkshire counties? Real estate prices in both are reasonable for our means. Anything closer to salt water seems to go rapidly up... as do the taxes. Anyways, SWMBO and I will be up that way the end of the year - over the New Year's holiday, if anyone out that way from MassCops wants to have a beer or coffee and trade war stories.
