Music Monday - John Mellencamp

I am a huge John Mellencamp fan and had a hard time just picking one of his songs to feature. Pink Houses, Jack & Diana, Hurts So Good, Dance Naked and Authority Song. They all remind me of my youth. I decided on Small Town because that's where I was born and raised. I did love growing up there. My friends from Refugio are like family to me. As a kid, I always thought I would stay there and raise a family in the deep traditions of the town. But, that was not the way it worked out. And while I love the diversity, variety and options that are offered here in the city, there are times when I miss that small town feeling. Where your neighbors stop by without calling and you know where everyone will be on Friday night.

John Cougar.... Seymour Indiana.... not too far away from where hubby grew up. We've been through there many times... I think we even went to a wedding back in the '80s.... Jeff's small town.... less than 1,000 in the city.... I grew up in a town of over 85,000 and where we live now is 38,000...I know I don't like the big city (Milw, Chicago, NYC)... farm life is too lonely and quiet... I'm a suburb girl....TMI :)
