Long ago, like decades, I read a short story about a married couple coming back from the Moon.

They had worked there for years because the pay was so high but they saved their money to buy a house on Earth. When they were leaving the Moon everyone was telling them that they would be back and they thought it was nonsense. The bought a house in New England but they found they could not stand all of the backward people still on Earth and went back to the Moon.

Does anyone recognize and know the title of that short story? It wouldn't surprise me if it was by ACC.

If it was the one where they were trying to get the heating fixed but no local would di for them because they were outsiders, then I think it was in Analog or Worlds of IF.

I'll try and look through my collection tomorrow

Yeah, I remember them having a problem getting something fixed during the winter.

Thanx!
