Getting the Scoop in a Small Town, Missouri

Lawson, Missouri

Story Narrative:

What's your favorite memory of living in a small town?

"In our small town, there are about 310 people, but I think they counted the chickens and the dogs. Even now when our family goes back for family reunion, we double the size of the population because there were 12 of us kids. We all go back with our families. I know I always liked it when the fire alarm went off because all you had to do was call my cousin Frankie's store once it was about 15 minutes later and she'd tell you everything that had happened. Who's barn burned down or who had a wreck, so you always knew. In the big city you don't know when you hear a siren what's going on. Back the, going to the movie theater, we'd take a dime and get pop from my cousin's grocery store. Then go watch the three stooges on the big screen. That was Saturday night."
