Small town?

I have to laugh when I hear people say they grew up in a small town...only twenty or thirty thousand people. In New Hampshire, that would be considered a pretty good sized city.
When I was growing up here, the population was in the neighborhood of 500. Now there's probably over 2000. Way too big for my liking.

Yup, I know what you mean. My hometown was around 700 when I was growing up, now it's down to about 600. I useta work with a Japanese feller from Tokyo. He was showin' hometown pictures to us, and I told him about my hometown. His was about 20,000 times as large as mine.

We're not big enough to be called "city" , they say we're a "township" maybe 450 pop! Not even a caution sign......out doing the rounds today and ran in to a fellow from Concord N.H. by coincidence where we were gabbing was Concord N.C.....Phlatt

Why, 500 people is mighty big around here! Jakes Corner where I live is only 1 1/2 people. That's counting me and my girl friend, Naughty Fingers LaRue. We only count her half cause she only lives here half the time. The other half the time she's runnin' the Purple Gopher Massage Parlor and Shoe Repair over in Whitehorse.

The town to my east, where my mail comes, has 780 people. And the one to my west, 2 1/2 miles away, has around 350. I know what a small town is! That's the kind I grew up in, too.

Come on now everything is relative. Reminds me of a story i heard a coupla years ago might even have been here. Seems this couple from NYC in an expensive foreign car pull into this little hamlet in upstate New York and pull up to the gaspump at a Generalstore/baitshop/gas station the old guy fills their tank and the husband say's "Wow must be paradise living way out here in the country like this" The old guy scretches his head, "Would'nt know. Lived right here in town all my life!"

Where? Not within 5 miles of Casa Les, I wouldn't think...

I live in the extreme north end of town. Most of the people live in the southern end of town. Lots of wilderness surrounds us.
I once calc'lated that I could walk from my house into Maine and only cross 2 paved roads. That's a distance of 40 or 50 miles.
If my house was on the west side of Route 3, I could probly walk to Vermont (a similar distance) and only cross 2 or 3 paved roads.
