Neighbor lady (aunt) just came by with a bag of potatoes saying thanks for plowing the recent snow from her driveway. Last time it was a big bowl of soup beans. She is worried how she is going to get the lawn mowed and garden tended to this coming spring. I'm a thinking that ain't going to be no problem. She done put in more effort walking up here with them potatoes than I did plowing her drive.

Most of the folks here are of the same attitude as you don't hurt none to take the extra steps needed to help someone out and not expect any sort of payment for it....that's just another difference between country and city folk.:^)

I would not put a lot of hope into this generation of youngsters doing the same for you....

Can't say I agree with you. I am part of a younger generation. I was raised with good morals, as was my husband. Not everyone who is young has low morals.

i don't understand the attytude here of many people that somehow country "folk" are better and more moral than city "folk". i have lived in both environments and have found that there is not much different in the two peoples once you take the time to know eachother.

most of the old timers are gone now from our farm community, replaced by folks from town or cities,this place is probably now one of the worst places i have ever seen to live, nobody helps anybody unless there is something in it for them, you never hear from anyone unless they want something. not a nice place to live anymore, is it the town folks , i don,t know , im sure there s good and bad everywhere, all i know is it,s not like it used to be, and i think we,re all poorer for it.

same here, i grew up on a farm. now almost all the farm land is houseing developments and i hate it. but as far as the people is concerned they aren't much all that different. i coached little league baseball here for nearly 10 years and met all kinds of people and let me tell ya something, it didn't matter where anyone came from the kids were all the same, great! one year i had a kid on the team that no other coach would take, he was a challenge but we worked it out and we both had a good season. it didn't matter if parents were long time locals or "outsiders" any parent could be a pain in the a** at times. i wish the area hadn't changed so much over the past 40 yrs. but you gotta learn to roll with the punches.

my plan as soon as i can decide on where i want to go is to ,roll right on out of here, trouble is finding another place isn,t all that easy anymore.

sure is , good that you helped her out and good to know that she appreciated it.nice to be able to help isn,t it.

I agree, being able to help someone is a blessing to both. My elderly aunt up the road is always trying to pay me for the little things that I do for her. I might be the same way when I have to depend on the youguns to do for me.
