a good plenty giving goes on in a rural town.. neighbours look out for and watch over each other.. where people drive tractors into town or snow mobile thru the woods to go visit.. where canned goods are traded and favours are bartered.. when ya have a bon fire, ya meet friends of friends and everyone's welcome.. if the old man down the road doesn't get to plowing his driveway, ya swoop in with your plow.. and front doors are never locked..

a whole lot of giving and no score keeping.. for me, this is the only way to live..

Yep, sounds about right. A few years ago I got a telephone call from a neighbour who told me he had seen that we had a slate that had come loose on the house roof. When I told him there wasn't much I could do because I was in Australia at the time he told me not to worry. He went and fetched his ladders, climbed on our roof and fixed it without me knowing!

i love it.. 
this morning i got a call from a friend, he said "should i come plow you out now? or after the next round of snow this afternoon?" knowing the fella is on "no duty" while he heals up from his operation.. 
and i find it's always the people that have so little, that give the most..

This is a beautiful photograph and you are enlightening me regarding the reasons why I live here instead of the big city.  I miss California, but when I go shopping here and everyone is really nice, I realize that the best places on earth are in smaller packages. Happy Thanksgiving!
