OK, Mayfield just rose exponentially in my mind with a Lowes. Can't live without one closeby. I an a "Closet tool junkie". Not that I know how to use them, but I love having them and thinking someday I'll learn to use them. How sad is that?

You've made comments about Mayfield Hispanic population before so get off your high horse. I can't voice your opinion I'm just not that negative.

I don't think you will go wrong with Mayfield. They have the usual fast-food joints and a bunch of good BBQ restaurants if you like that. If you need a mall, you are 20 mintues from Paducah, which has even more chain-type restaurants. As far as safety, Mayfield/Graves County have their usual happenings, but NOTHING like on the scale of Phoenix. You will enjoy the area.

Check out Murray too before making your final decision. It is also a nice area.

I'm sure we will check out several of the surrounding areas. Your input has been helpful and entertaining. If you can think of anything else I should know...feel free to let me know.

I got to read this one a little late but I grew up in Mayfield. First graduating class in the "new" Mayfield High School (Class of "74). My parents still live there and I enjoy going back to visit. Mayfield is one of those small towns where everybody knows each other. Growing up in town, if there was a death somewhere on your block, usually somebody in the neighborhood would take up a collection for flowers. On our block, my mother usually volunteered me! lol I know it's changed a lot since then but it still has that home town feel. When my wife and I were house looking we checked out several in town online. TS, even without a Lowes, it was a good town! lol

Kygman,

I agree with you. Mayfield seems like a very nice town and we are very serious about coming out there and taking a look around. My comment about Lowe's was very tongue-in-cheek, but I may have ended up having to live thru Lowe's withdrawals...lol

They still collect money for flowers and in the small outer towns (Farmington, Lowes [the town, not the store], Fancy Farm, Wingo etc.) they'll have a jar with a note taped on it at the store for flowers. They also do it if someone is sick and in need of money or help. They'll even have the jars at the mom and pop stores in town.

Wow, that money collecting business is very foreign to me. But I certainly like the idea of neighbors caring for neighbors. Mayfield just keeps sounding better and better.
