There was an article online this morning talking about living in a small town compared to living in suburbs or a big city. Even though I lived on a farm, about 10 miles from a small town and went to high school in a small town, I could definitely relate to this article. I knew everyone in my high school graduating class. The big "hang-out" place, on weekends, if you had a car, was the Azar's Big Boy Drive-In Restaurant on the edge of Ft. Wayne. I wasn't able to do this until I was half-way thru my Senior year and finally had a car. And, since part of my class was made up of teens from farms, like myself, we had farm work to do during the daytime hours. Getting into trouble..........very-little-to-none. Just wasn't part of the "small town" or farm ways. Don't know how many on this forum were raised in a small town or farming area, but it is a pretty cool way/area to be raised in.
