"I am looking forward to being able to talk to the animals, so to speak. Of course, I talk to them now, but it doesn't do a lick of good. We will all be able to communicate with buffalo and wildebeest and underwater creatures such as the giant isopod. Flying is never a problem since gravity will be under our control. Heaven's dwelling places (or "mansions" in KJV) will make the saint feel at home. If someone lived in 1297, then his "apartment" or "condo" will reflect his time period, dirt floor and all. The Alamo will not be there, so you will just have to remember it now. There will be no keys to lock or unlock doors, but there will be doorbells so people just don't walk in unannounced. The doorbell you chose will be your Heavenly theme song. I have already picked the tune for my home in Heaven. It's a little number from WW2, sung by the Andrew Sisters. When you ring a doorbell and hear Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy, you'll know you came to the right house. I'll be dancing like Astaire with my cane as a partner."
