If one desires to live a lifestyle worthy of being the " talk of the town" either...........
#1---------don't move to a small town
#2............don't live a lifestyle worthy of that title.

Simple !

Take your pick as " it is what it is "

The closed-mindedness, the insularity, the gossip, the nosiness... I could go on and on.

A busybody's haven. And that's the men! Ugh. No thanks. I much prefer the relative anonymity of the medium-sized city I live in now.
That's your personal preference only, not necessarily the truth.

You caught me EVA, I thought I remembered seeing the population sign for Springfield, Mo. as being 5,760 when I started driving there about 1950. I was estimating what the population must have been in 1935 when I was born there. Depending on whose web site you check, the estimate was aprox. 57,000 while the population for 2013 is between 255,000 to 180,000 determined by how many bedroom communities are included in Springfield proper. That is what happens when one relys on memory. LOL
