Joani, Cute story about Chuck and Katie's daughter Jessie. I will have to tell it when I facilitate our General Meeting in November. I guess it just wouldn't be as endearing a story if it was a "common unit fly." Joani wrote <Not all coho communities are made up of single family or houses or homes like Winslow is.> Neither is Winslow, made up that is, with single family houses. We actually have 10 duplexes, one fourplex and one sixplex (we sound like a movie theater complex--now showing, one lifetime only, the horror of all horror films, two thumbs down by Siskel and Ebert, "You Can Move In But You Can Never Leave" -- based on the true life story of a family in cohousing ). And, of course, we also have a free-standing Common Unit. I felt alone about this "unit" vs "home" thing, until some of your kind responses. For the longest time I was the only person to refer to homes or houses here at Winslow (well, I still am). I am glad to know I am not all alone now. Some of you with older memories (or memories at all if you went through the development phase with your group) might recall that I wrote a piece called, "I Don't Live in a Unit," three years or so back. And yes, "Unit" is a production term and I certainly don't live in one. Mine is a nice, cozy, snuggly home. Thank you all very much for your opinions. Keep those letters and cards acoming! Tom
