Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart, when I can heart it beat outloud! - Shakedown Street

I'm learning the differences between living in a small town and a huge city. I'm learning fast, I think. With 2800 rather than 10 million people, you can feel the pulse of the community. It's sort of like the "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" syndrome and every knows what everyone else did, does and is planning to do. Maybe it's gossip but I prefer the consider it a big family of sorts. I know if I ever needed help, it would be here without asking. It is safe, if you are sound.

I know what you are talking about (the small town not the big city). I live in a town of 1500 and everyone know everything about everyone; and half of them are related.

I liked in the city. But when I got married we moved to a small town... Still not used to it!

I like a small town over a city. The feel of the people is just so much nicer. Hubby always wants to move to a city and i bed for us not to. Been there done that.. didn't like it. I am comfy in a small town.

The sunny side of the street is dark. well, well, well, you can never tell.
Maybe that’s cause it’s midnight, in the dark of the moon besides.



I miss Jerry...

Small towns are like families...it's easy to just be yourself because you don't have any choice.

I love living in small places. When we were down in Cornwall our "town" only had a couple hundred people. I really started enjoying the smallness after a while--everyone knew everyone, and we all stuck together.
Thanks for stopping by! :)

Old country adage: There ain't much to see in a small town but what you hear makes up for it.
