Little Country Towns
Good God man - it's good to be back in the great state of wide open spaces. I moved into town, the big city of Nixon-population 1,985. haha Things were so cramped in Florida and folks don't realize it down there. When you come out here-even the houses are spaced far apart compared to Panama City where I was. I really have enjoyed being back in this little town I grew up in. Everyone knows each other and each others business. There are no secrets in little country towns. But that has it's good side too. Your kids are watched by one and all and you feel safe letting your kids do things without a parents watchful eye. Sort of. People are so friendly and everybody waves and stops to talk no matter where you meet. People park in the street and dash in to Super S and grab soda and bread and dash back out without getting a ticket. There are good people no matter where you live - and I met the best in the state of Florida - but there seems to be even more in little country towns. I love it. AND NO HURRICANES either.
