...the road hog in front of you on Main Street is a combine.

...you leave your jacket on the back of a chair in the cafe and when you go back the next day, it's still there.

...you call a wrong number and they tell you the right one.

...everyone knows all the news before it's published.

...you don't signal turns because everyone knows where you're going.

...you miss a Sunday at church and receive get-well cards.

...no social events can be scheduled when the school gym floor is being varnished.

...Third Street is on the edge of town.

...the telephone book only has one yellow page.

...the year's first baby is born in June.

Once in our little cowtown, two ladies were visiting one morning...

One said," Did you hear about the B-----s boy rolling his pickup last night?"
The other said,"No. Was anyone hurt?"
The first lady said," Don't know. I haven't been to the post office yet to get the details."

...you call a wrong number and they tell you the right one.
wasn't too many years ago, we were still on a party line.

...everyone knows all the news before it's published.
Only newspaper our lil town has is the school newspaper, if you
want real news you hafta go to the next town and buy a county paper.

...you don't signal turns because everyone knows where you're going.
This is Sooooo True. No redlights in our town, and only 1 4way stop.

...you miss a Sunday at church and receive get-well cards.
Or the next Sunday they ask where you went for the weekend lol

...no social events can be scheduled when the school gym floor is being varnished.
This is also true, I've had the coach tell me to "Take my boots off" :shock:

...Third Street is on the edge of town.
RR Tracks is the Edge of town here.

...the telephone book only has one yellow page.
What telephone book, same as newspaper, we hafta borrow the one from
the next town over.
