I find I don't like living anonymously. I like it that our mail-lady not only knows our name, but knows my son has been waiting for weeks for the ants to his ant farm to come in the mail. And that she is aware that they write letters to another family on her route, and she has often hand cancelled a letter from the other family (they are first on the route) and delivered it the same day to my kids. And I like it that the librarians have our library card number memorized.

But our grocery stores are farther away, and my husband's commute is longer. Oh, well, you can't have everything.

Very nice! Living in a friendly town is a very new experience for me, and I'm still agog (and grateful).
