    Those who grew up in small towns will laugh when they read this.Those who didn't will be in disbelief.

    1) You can name everyone you graduated with.
    2) You know what 4-H means.
    3) You went to parties at a pasture, barn, gravel pit, or in the middle of a dirt road. On Monday you could always tell who was at the party
    Because of the scratches on their legs from running through the woods
    when the party was busted. (See 6)
    4) You used to "drag" Main.
    5) If you said the "F" word - your parents knew within the hour.
    6) You scheduled parties around the schedules of different police officers, because you knew which ones would bust you and which ones
    7) You could never buy cigarettes because all the store clerks knew how old you were (and if you were old enough, they'd tell your parents
    8) When you did find somebody old enough and brave enough to buy cigarettes, you still had to go out into the country and drive on
    Back roads to smoke them.
    9) You knew which section of the ditch you would find the beer your buyer dropped off.
    10) It was cool to date somebody from the neighboring town.
    11) The whole school went to the same party after graduation.
    12) You didn't give directions by street names but rather byreferences. Turn right by Nelson's house, take the first leftafter that spot where Jimmy's Mom hit that cow, and it's two roads down on
    the left by the airfield.
    13) The golf course had only 9 holes.
    14) You couldn't help but date a friend's
    15) Your car stayed filthy because of the dirt roads, and you will never own a dark vehicle for this reason.
    16) The town next to you was considered "trashy" or "snooty," but was actually just like your town.
    17) You referred to anyone with a house newer than 1965 as the "rich people".
    18) The people in the "big city" dressed funny, and then you picked up the trend 2 years later.

    And you would drive by the cop shop and donut stores to see how many cop cars were there. If all were accounted for- that was the time to do burnouts and brake torcs.

    And even if you've lived in the same house for over 15 years, it's still called "the old Hewitt place" after the folks who were there before you.

    Too funny, and oh so true......back then their was only one cop car in our town. When he was having lunch, or busy with something, it was time to burn some rubber off the back tires.... [​IMG]
