JimmyMAC: Coveting Coeur d’Alene

JimmyMAC (Anti-McEuenite Gookin attends dedication): My wife overheard the following conversation between a husband and wife in I'm guessing their early to mid 30's who were also sitting on benches next to splash pad at McEuen Park on Saturday afternoon. It might not be word for word EXACTLY but this is pretty much on point with what my very honest and very beautiful wife indicated she heard while I was chasing my ear-to-ear smiling Gracie:

  • Mrs: “I'm serious. Sandpoint is a ghost town. This is where we need to be living.”
  • Mr: “You really want to? You'd pull the kids from school and seriously move? You?”
  • Mrs: “Look at them (their children playing). Look at all of this! We could sell the house and talk to (so and so) and find out about schools. I'm ready to move down here.”

That's the extent of what Mrs. Mac picked up on but if the old adage of “happy wife = happy life” is a reality in that household, I'd bet that the Kootenai County population grows by four before fall registration.
