Small town life

One of the joys of small town life, other than everyone knowing your business and knowing your postmaster, grocery store clerk and librarian by first name, is our local paper. This weeks joys include:

An ad for a “1st Annual Mud Bog and Drag Racing.” I hate to admit my ignorance, but I have no clue what a “mud bog” might be, but it does sound like fun.

An FFA plant sale, with a tomato plant listing of “yellow pair.” I’m a gardening novice, but I am assuming they meant “yellow pear.” Otherwise they might be better listed on Bill’s Content with a headline of “fake tan, but they’re spectacular….”

A bar featuring Butch’s pizza AND $1 tacos. (Motto: “We Be Jammin”)

A barbershop/coffee cafe/pool hall/video arcade. It also has a great motto: “it’s a guy thing” because you know, women don’t get haircuts, drink coffee or like to do anything fun.

And my personal favorite:

NOTICE:
Am I the only one who got bad gas at one of the stations in Hanna City on April 14. Call xxx-xxxx

Too many obvious jokes for that one.

    Heh — those kinds of things do make me miss small-town life. Living in a big suburban area has its own quirks, but they’re definitely not the same kinds of things. 😉

    Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!

    Though I loved the time I spent living in “the city”, I’ve gotta admit…I really missed living in a small town.

    I like your blog!
    A few times when I would go into a gas station to buy something, a clerk would ask “do you have gas?”. I always wished I was quicker with the wit and had said something like, “no, how RUDE!” or something to that effect. Alas, I am forever late with the comeback, kind of like George Castansa!
