We live in on an island with about 8000 other people…it’s a relatively small, isolated place. There are many unique pros and cons that I have experienced living in a little town. Lets explore some of these….

We only have a few stores so — HELLO ONLINE SHOPPING! The only drawback is you have to wait…
The Police Blotter is R.I.D.I.C.U.L.O.U.S
After a while, you see people you know everywhere. This is wonderful – it is also horrible.
