Small Town

Rush City, Minnesota.  Population 3,079.  My graduation class was about 54 kids.  Known for catching the worlds largest walleye.  Home to an endless array of gas stations, zero stop lights, and formerly the hometown of ME.  As I revisited my past, I became overwhelmed with acute nostalgia.  It is so hard to believe that I have been gone for nearly 13 years.  It is as if nothing and everything has changed.  Maybe it is just me that has changed.  When I grew up here, I couldn't wait to get out.  At 18 I was out the door and on a plane to LA.  Now looking back I am so grateful for what this small town has done for me.  Living in such a small community, everyone was like family.  At the time, this was the very thing that drove me crazy!  Everything I did or didn't do would be gossiped throughout the town within 36 seconds.  However, that also kept me in check.  When given an inch, I took a mile ...and had it not been for such a close knit community, I would have probably ended up in a gutter somewhere, or in an orange jumpsuit.  I can't help but smile when remembering all the fun times I had here...roller-blade water skiing behind cars, Friday night football games, getting my license, Homecoming dances, working at the pool, going to the mall every weekend senior year to make sure I was a clean sweep for "Best Dressed"  -awww the good ol' days!
