They move a House from one end of town to the other & it’s like a parade is going by. Ha Ha! It’s soo funny. Theres been about 2 different times in the last 5 years that people in our town have decided to sell a House and actually physically move the home from one lot to another. It doesn’t really seem to uncommon of a practice but everyone in our town is flipping out about it and watching this thing stroll through town!!! Anyone else live in a small town where everyone knows everything going on… gotta love Small town Charm 🙂

I’m from a SUPER small town in Southern California. People don’t even know how to pronounce the name of it! But yeah, I remember being excited about a second stop light being put in! It’s the little things ;]

When the Wal-Mart in my hometown opened the marching band and cheerleaders were released from school so they could cheer on an provide music for the blessed event.

Small towns are definitely fun sometimes. Everyone knows everything that is going on. Even though the privacy can be a little limited sometimes, I still love my small town.

You said it right on with privacy issues. It’s very annoying sometimes. But I guess we just have to deal. Yes; we now have a Walmart tooo & a Lowes! & no on can pronounce our hometown name either….

I live in a village. We’re not even big enough for the title of town. 😛
You know you’re from a small town when you know the names of the people that are driving the horse and buggy down the road.
…when you know who owns every house or farm within a five mile radius. You can drive down the road and say “Went to school with them. Go to church with them. Parents know them. Friends with them. Went to school with my sister. Get our produce from them.” etc.
…when you tell people where you live, and they respond with “…Where’s that?” And when you tell them the biggest town around, they say “…Where’s that?” And when you have to name a city forty minutes away just so people have a general idea of where you live.
…when there are no stop lights and you’re lucky if people observe stop signs. Gotta love that heavy traffic…
…when the last time your town was a hub of commercial activity was in 1850. Now we’re lucky to have a convenience store AND an antique shop!
…when you live just down the road from one of the world’s biggest corn maze “theme parks.”
I love my home. 😛

Jokes about my small town of 500 that I lived in for a little bit. Town of 500…
- “Vacation” means driving to Silver Dollar City, Worlds of Fun or Six Flags.
- You know all 5 seasons: winter, still winter, almost Summer, and Construction, then deer season
- You failed world geography in school because you thought Cuba, Florida, Versailles, California, Nevada, Houston, Cabool, Louisiana, Springfield, and Mexico were cities in Missouri.
- You think everyone from a bigger city has an accent.
- you get excited when a sign is put up that says “coming Soon….Arby’s”
- you say Branson, Missourah
- you spell camp with a k
- live bait is sold at gas stations
- Walmart is the after school hang out place
- You see people wear bib overalls at funerals and weddings
- Your idea of creative landscaping is a statue of a deer next to a blue spruce.
- your preset buttons are set to country or christian
- there is one elementary school
Oh and it’s all true.

I’m from a TINY town! They just got a grocery store a couple of years ago, and it’s a Super S – not even what I would consider a real grocery store! When I was growing up we didn’t even have a single stop light – I remember it was a HUGE deal when the first one got installed (now they have a whopping two stop lights!)

I went to high school in a town of about 700. The high school had kids like me from a bigger city nearby because of how the boundaries were drawn. It was CRAZY. Not only did everyone know everyone else, but most of them were related in some way, and everyone’s parents had gone to the high school as well. It wasn’t big enough for any stores except for a gas station, a pizza place, a post office, and a general store.
The saddest part? We had a really high mortality rate. It was bad combination of loooots of drinking/drugs and all country roads where 70 mph was slow.
