Small Town Problems

The view of my small town square through the upstairs window of an antique store.  


Often times I paint the picture of small town perfection.  Though life here is good, it isn't without its problems.  

Take last night, for example.  

The girl of the house had her annual softball banquet.  Parents and players gather for a wonderful meal, awards are give out, and a good time is had by all.  I was seated by a lovely parent who has been somewhat unlucky in love.  She let us all know that two of her ex-husbands were seated together at the end of the table and her current husband was next to her.  

She said if she lived in New York City she wouldn't be having such problems.  

And, there you have it.

  5. A sign of the times in a small town. I do run into it a lot. Met one lady who had been to the alter 6 times, and thought is that all they do around here? LOL

  6. Oh, small towns. Everyone is related it seems. They need to make a Real Housewives In Small Town America. Be a lot of scrapping going on.

  8. Oh wow, LOL.. poor girl! I'd still rather live in a small town though..even with all the grapevine issues..it's head and shoulders above living in a big place, with neighbors within ten feet of each other. Been there, done that, and I hated it. The trade off is having everyone know all your business in the small town.

  9. LOL.. well I've lived in NY and now in a small town. I happens everywhere, because you still tend to travel in the same circles, truth.

  10. That's funny. I have to say, I wouldn't have enjoyed being in her position. Imagine the conversation between the two ex-husbands? Eek! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  13. Sounds as though her evening was a barrel of laughs!

  14. LOL . . . Difficult place to get up to some Hanky Panky undetected . . . ROFL.

    I am surprised the two ex husbands were sitting next to each other, or are they a couple?

    I hope she is still not unlucky in love with her third husband . . .

    Like the quotation and the story . . . :)

  19. Ouch...that's tough! I do love the small town atmosphere though. Around here if anyone does anything wrong...everybody knows about it. So, it's good motivation for everyone to try to stay in line.

  20. There is no escaping your past in a small town, that's for sure! Sounds like the man to woman ratio might be a bit lop-sided, too! Lol! I can relate - my town is about the same!

    ReplyDelete
  21. :))) So funny,...awkward situation for the girl though. It would make a good scene in a comedy film.:)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think small toens know more about their neighbours.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Too funny! No, she would probably be on her fifth!

  25. I love the quote!!!! I don't think I would point out my exes. Maybe punch them not point out. Not that I have a lot of exes just one.

  26. Wow - that must have been an eye opening conversation to have - and at a girl's softball banquet at that! Love the quote :))

  27. Perspective is everything. *wink*
    I am so far behind; stress. Just not feeling well. Hugs.

  28. LOL, apparently no secrets in your small town. Especially when the lady involved tells people.

  29. Hey, in a small town she has been successful in finding three men to marry. It can't be that bad.
