My wife is basically required to carry on her Job. Wouldn't have it any other way.


Funny use to be I could carry a Loaded Shotgun down Main Street no one said a thing. Now days wouldn't get a block before being questioned.


Things change. I was staying over night at a sons house. In Springfield. Rental House next door a White Guy was there taking New Central Air Unit. Owner of the house asked him about it? Oh I was told I could have it. Owner went to front of the House and called Police.


Anymore have Security System at our House and Lock it. Never needed before.

If your talking about my wife she would be calling herself. LOL Plus she sets off the Siren for Tornadoes.

Came to Austin, TX and no even cares ( which is awesome). We're in our early 30s. So my question is how is Springfield? Is it pretty diverse? And is there things to do for people around our age?
I feel like I've already replied to this post before but I lived in Springfield, MO for a while and worked there as a nurse. I will tell you my experience. Springfield, MO to me has some diversity and many Asians from what I remember. There are things to do such as go to fast food places, chain restaurants, and churches. There is also some to do in the Ozark mountains when it comes to fishing and camping but to me it has nothing like what CO, MT, and ID have to offer. The christian world head quarters is there so do expect and respect the religious groups there. As for interracial couples I personally don't think it would go over well. I was and Italian Catholic who was single at the age of 24 which to the people there I was considered satan. The fact that I was a single woman with no children at the age of 24, many people told me I was "wrong" for that. I remember people telling me "You're not an american, you're not a christian, you're not a good person" and the list goes on. If you in anyway don't fit their ideal mold then you will not be tolerated there.

I am guessing this was shortly after the Spanish-American War? Things have changed quite a bit since then.

Nope, my experiences happened in 2013. I remember it like it was yesterday.
