Small town life

When I was a child we lived in a small town. Do you know what a small town is? That is one where they put up a stop sign in the middle of it, so you wouldn't miss it when you came through. A small town is one in which everyone knew whose check was good, and whose kid wasn't. Does anyone else have any definitions that they really like about this subject. Thank you, in advance.

Thank you for your comments. My town was so small that the town square was a triangle. Our town drunk had the position for several small towns in the area.

Small towns are wonderful! My MOM is from Kentucky. Some of the towns were so small that the only way you knew you drove through them is because there is one school. My Aunt's town is so small that the post office is next door and the little store just down the street. My cousin graduated with like 30 other students. Everyone knew everybody and everyone their business.

Coming from a very large city I have never had the pleasure of living in a small town. Although the subdivision I live in is almost like a small town and I like the close knit feeling.

I liove in a relatively small town. There is one stop light. It means things are easy and private. Relaxed and laid-back. Small towns all have their own identities. I hope to continue to live in or near one the rest of my life.

Small towns are great. You're not afraid to wave hi to someone and they think you want to be "picked" up. people are still willing to help out a neighbor. Heck you know your neighbor. Where my husband went to high school the kids drove their tractors to school instead of cars.

Thank you. I really appreciate it when a friend picks up one of my old discussions, and breathes new life into it.

You're welcome. I find that since I have a number of friends that I don't always get a chance to respond right away when they start a discussion. I appreciate when someone takes a look at my older topics and respond to them so I figure others would like the same.

When I was growing up, we moved from a HUGE city near Washington DC to a very small town in the Shenandoah Valley. There was ONE stop light and I thought that town was SMALL. WRONG LOL I now live in a small town...there is no sign to say 'you're here', the is a post office and a volunteer fire and rescue dept and there is a resort community at the end of the road through the town. I live next door to the post office and the house I live in used to be the post office til 1963 when the new one was built and opened. Everyone knows everyone else. And you ALWAYS know what your kids are doing. And if they did something that they should not have, the information ALWAYS reaches me before they even walk in the door LOL

I am very aware of how information reaches parents before the kids get home. While bringing my sisters home from the movies one night, I passed a car that was driving slower than I wanted to drive, so I passed it. My Dad knew it before I got home. I got a short training session on how to pass other cars and get back into the right lane in a safe fashion without endangering others. I did not get in trouble for passing. What I got in trouble for was getting back in the travel lane a bit faster than I should have.
