    ...when you walk into the beauty shop to buy Christmas gift cards, covered in deer blood, and nobody bats an eye.:smile2:

    I love this place.

    Dave. Amazing in this day and age ain't it? The little burg I am associated with is the same way. In addition, either boots, jeans or coveralls covered with cow manure or hog manure is the De Regor (sp?). Had some friends come out from Chicago to visit. Had known them for 20 years. Never had been to this kind of environment before. They could not believe it nor get over it. I loved it. They have never been back since. LOL

    Your signature is cool. Was that a while back from one of PeeWee's witticisms?

    It's like that here too. Nothing odd about seeing a dead deer or two hanging out of the back of the truck at the local Wally world. Everyone passes by without even a second glance except that the ladies and kids try not to step in the blood running down the parking lot. It's just how things are here.

    Geeze I love my small country town. There's not a big city in the world that can hold a candle to simple, friendly little towns like this.

    ......you forget to pay for gas on the way to the river and the lady at the gas station reminds you when you stop in on the way home from fishing.

    "Course I didn't call the law, I knew it was you and I know you stop every time on your way back from the river for a soda and candy for your boy" She knew I wasn't stealing, just air-headed from being a hurry to go fishing......


    .......anything in the front yard is generally for sale, sign on it or not.

    when i ran off & forgot to pay for gas they just called my stepson's dad cuz they knew who he was, he got a hold of my boy & we stopped in & payed on the way back!!!! No big deal!!!I love it-that's why i drive an hour to the city to work, the guys are like "Why do u drive so far to work?move closer", then i say "It takes u an hour to get across town in traffic, by that time i've already stopped for 2 (drinks) and got home"!!!!

    2 Ways I can testify to:

    1. People wave at each other as they drive by, even if they don't know them

    2. Wives are sitting in the "middle" of the bench seat closest to their husbands in the truck, just to be close to him.
    Honestly, I've never seen it before I moved to Weatherford, and I see it all the time now!
    I like it!

    I grew up in a small town in southern california, actually about 5 miles from the Rose Bowl. It was not unusual for someone to have a deer at my buddys butcher shop being processed. Could have done at home but was cooler to do it there and get a picture put on the wall. I was spoiled as a kid, not spoiled as being rich, in other ways. I could legally bowhunt deer about 1000 yards from my house, I had trout in a stream about 6-7 miles from home, mountain quail about 15 minutes from home. The ocean was 30 minutes away. I could go to the desert and hunt desert quail, dove, pheaseant, cottontail in 30 minutes. I also had major lakes within 30 minutes, Lake Castaic, Piru, Pyramid...Any lookers just google La Crescenta, California.

    Living in a small town is great! Where else can you walk to someone in a store parking lot that has a deer in the back of his truck and go to talking to him about deer hunting for an hour before you find out one or the others name. First thing you know there will be 4 or 5 standing around talking about hunting.
