News in a small town
[Return to Topics]

I bought a used tractor yesterday. It is bigger than my truck could reasonably pull on the trailer, so I drove it the 25 miles home and got home late yesterday afternoon. I stopped at the convenience store for a paper this am and got some grief about that "blue" tractor here in green (Deere) territory. Same at the bank at noon time. A client stopped in this afternoon to pick up some papers and mentioned her sister seeing me on the tractor on the road yesterday. On the way home I stopped at the hardware store and a fella I don't even know, said he'd sell me a front snow plow attachment for it.
This caused me to wonder how anybody could ever "fool" around on a spouse in this community? Or keep any other secrets for that matter?

In our small town of 4,800 you better not get in trouble everyone will know. If you caught drinking and driving it is front page news! Kids that get caught stealing they don't sat there name most of the time but you know who did it. The page that covers the crime report puts it all out there for everyone to see and that is good I think it helps alot in stopping a lot of it!! And yes you better not mess around it will spread like wildfire here! Mark H.

A couple of weeks ago I was buying groceries at our mom and pop store and asked the owner whether he knew of a reliable handyman to help my husband on one of his projects. He introduces me to a man I never saw before, said he was willing to work with Gerrit. When I was about to tell him who we were he cuts in and said " yeah I know who you are the americanos". He also knew where we live.

A few months after moving into our little place, I was bush-hogging my front field. It is quite hilly and steep, but I had gotten confident on my little tractor so I was mowing away pretty good.

Next day, I had two different friends/neighbors separately come over to tell me that their friends had asked them to warn me that I needed to mow more carefully/slowly before I became a roll-over casualty.

So they do notice everything, but I guess many of them care, too. Neighbor taking care of neighbor.

Hey S-H, you'd be well advised to get out of that town. Sounds to me like it breeds familiarity.

Could it be like Green Acres or Hooterville where everyone knows everything about everyone including the pig? Your real name isn't Ol-a-vier Douglas, is it?........gfp

You planning something?!LOL
You gotta be careful cause it's a small world, and even smaller in a rural community. First time you do something or go somewhere you wouldn't be proud of...
