Small Town Living

After taking a little break from Facebook, I dropped in to post a few pictures from a neighborhood get-together.

Friends and neighbors got together Friday evening for dinner.

Some of us have lived in this little 'hood for more than 20 years.  We're pretty fond of it, and one another.  Protective.

We love this little neighborhood in the small community of Meat Camp, NC, north of the small town of Boone, NC in the mountains of NW North Carolina.

Small town living.  MY version.

Also at Facebook you can read about Jason Aldean's version of a small town.  And you can listen to his song - it's about lynching.  

THIS is why I take breaks from Facebook.

Some people want to spread the hate.

Some of us have no stomach for how a racist country music singer views small towns.  He's a pig.  (Change my mind?  HA!)

That song is a rallying call to bigots.  It is what it is. 

He forgets that some of us remember things differently.


There you have it.

I've shared some good stuff about our neighborhood in a small town.  

I've shared a bigot's version of a small town.

Choose your version.

You can live your life loving the positive, or you can live your life embracing the hate.
