Please Don't Flip Children The Bird

Small town life can be entertaining, depending on the small town of course. We have lived in a variety of places, large cities, small cities, and now a small town.
My husband was corrected by one of the 3 ladies that work at the town hall building when he referred to where we live as a small a it's a town.

There is a newspaper here that comes out once a week on Wednesdays, It's a lot of fluff, but usually an entertaining read. The police blotter is always fun.

This week on the front page was an article about the White Trash Food Festival and Cooking Contest at a local market+ .There is a large photo of the three food judges, including local author Tom Robbins, doing shots of whiskey...apparently bribes from some of the contestants. The whole thing is meant to be tongue in cheek, but a prime example of the weirdness here.

An oldie but a goodie is a letter to the editor that was in the paper last year.

It obviously is different from the kind of entertainment you find in a big city, but certainly has it's own appeal.

Wow, this makes me feel like I'm back home, where the police blotter usually consists of "Netty May Cantu's goats escaped their pen and caused a road blockage on the afternoon of July 17th" and the like!
