I'm in Salem Iowa SE corner Henry Co. Lived here all my life. Grew up around my grandparents farms. Both sides farmed. I grew up in a little house in the country where when the corn field grew tall all you could see on three sides was corn! The fourth side was the highway.

I love living in a small town for the most part. It is quiet and you know who is walking by usually and don't worry about crime a whole lot. Not that there isn't any but it is few and far between. I like being close to country living. We have lp tanks here instead of city gas. The houses are wide apart not jammed up against one another. The neighbors will help you if you need help. My mom fell and broke her wrist one winter and it was during a blizzard! Our neighbor John drove us into the hospital as there was no way I could drive in that snow!! It was close to a white out and the roads were shere ice and blowing drifting snow. Thank goodness for good neighbors!

Tho I could do without the gossips! I always say they know what you are thinking before you think it!
