It got back to the other neighbor of his.

That borrowing of rake came to a screeching halt.

I think they forgot to teach capitalization of sentences back in the big city schools also.

Small towns are much the same, whether it is on the Canadian prairies where I live in the summer (pop. 321) or visit my girl friends cousin in Pasgacoula county, Mississippi.

People are straight forward, say what they mean but don't say it mean, and you never have to wonder if help is available as soon as you need it.

The only thing is I found the relatives in Mississippi a bit harder to understand.

It is easier to understand the 'eh's' versus the 'y'all's"

When we moved into our present location (most folks related to one another), it was recommended to us that we should be careful how we spoke, for in one small statement, we could step on many toes all at once.

Never complain about the Mayor. He might be the guy who works on your truck brakes.

I think the only damage our mayor could do is refuse to sell you a house or land, since he's also a realtor.

do not be surprised if there are firearms in the back window of the pickup truck and the doors are not locked. also do not complain to the cops if you see someone carrying a firearm on their hip, you might just get a "are you new here"? or
"that's not against the law" from the cops.

Because the owner doesn't have to worry because of the dog that's sitting in the cab.
