Small towns are strange and wonderful places. Chock full of people who strive to live a good life and help one another along the way. Yet, they are also full of quirks, oddball folks, and ways of getting things accomplished that normal folks might not consider.
Take, for example, my daughter's friend. Recently a young man stepped on her foot, while wearing his cleats. Yes, it was painful for her and it also broke her foot.
Her father, who works with a local vet, took her to the vet office and did the x-rays himself. Yes, yes he did.
Then, he called the girl's uncle, who happens to be our very own small town podiatrist. Seriously. Except, the locals like to call him a, "foot doctor".
Uncle Foot Doctor came to the rescue with the reading of the vet office x-rays, treatment and then proceeded to deliver said girl to school after the appointment.
That is how things are done here in Smalltownland my friends.....
