    We have one bank, a little tiny post office, a restaurant

    My Dad grew up on a farm here. My kids went to the same school I did, and my Dad started here in the one room school house.

    I really envy you having lived in the same place all your life. We moved around some and I found it difficult having to make new friends all the time. I made sure my children lived in the same place all their years through school.
    I had a guy tell me once at a store "If you're not a (maiden name) you should be" I guess we all look alike. I only have 85 first cousins on my dad's side!

    My husband and I bought a house a year before we got married, we'll live here forever

    Can you tell I like this place?

    It has been nice, and I admit to being lucky it was possible. My kids? Oldest son has his roots here, youngest is in the Navy, and seems to have more 'wander' in him, and my daughter? Who knows!

    No Curry? Other than a good Curry, sounds like a typical High Street.

    I live in a small town. Like another poster, my town used to be a huge, booming town with 4 railroads coming through about 100 years ago. We have a few stores but not much. And the sidewalks roll up by 7. We have to travel for most everything. My daughter says she loves that she grew up in a small town - but has no intention of staying here. Ha I see her in new york. I love living in a rural area. :D
