There She Is!

So I was having this funny thought today. It is kind of related to small town NH, but I think it rings true in any small town USA.

In a small town there are people that are “known” for one thing or another. Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes it’s not so great. There are also the people that put a good deal of effort into flying just below the radar; they don’t mind that everyone knows they are around, but they don’t want it to be because of that time they had a little too much to drink one night and wandered the streets in nothing but their sneakers.

I have been around here for a while so I know that most people have, at least, heard of me, but my thought process is more geared to when I’m older. I can kind of see myself as “the crazy cat lady”, but with dogs. This is not to say that I don’t have a few eccentricities at my current age. In fact, anyone that knows me and just read that while drinking something is now wiping said beverage off anything in a 5 foot radius while saying “A few!?”  I am very aware that there are people that already think I’m a little “out there…” I think it has to do with how much time I spend talking to Jack & Buddy. What am I supposed to do, just ignore them when they ask me a question?! That would be rude!

Anyway, I want to be the little old lady, with the cute dogs, that is always doing good things in the community. Sure, I will be pulling my dogs around in a little red wagon that is decked out to look like Snoopy’s dog house, but I want to be known as the “good deed doing-little old lady.”

That is one of the major perks of small town living; you can be known and you can really make a difference! Sometimes it’s just that you bring a smile to someone’s face when they see you out and about, but that would be good enough for me!

Jack & Buddy go trick or treating :-)

    I can easily see that in your future. You are already a ‘good samaritan’ by making tons of people laugh with your lightning wit! Do you already have a snoopy wagon? If not, I would be happy to help you build one!
