Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

You know you live in a small town when...

*It has an aquarium -- stocked with a live minnow
*The town newspaper is published monthly
*The town is named after EVERYONE'S distant relative.
*It was founded on April Fools' Day as a practical joke.
*The Ice Cream store has only two flavors, chocolate and vanilla.
*There's no hospital -- only a first aid kit
*For fun on Saturday nights, people drive up and down main street.
*There's no bank... as soon as someone gets enough money, they leave.
*The local phone book has only one yellow page.
*Hardware, Dry Goods, Grocery, Clothing and farm supplies are all sold at the same store. (the ONLY store!)
*Third Street is on the edge of town
*You don't signal turns because everyone knows where you're going, anyway.
*No social events are scheduled when the school gym floor is being varnished.
*You call a wrong number and they supply you with the correct one.
*The city limits signs are both on the same post.
*The 7-11 is only open from 8 - 5.
*The only road crossing Main Street is a dirt road.
*The New Year's baby was born in October.
*The one-block-long Main Street dead ends in both direction
*There's no place to go that you shouldn't
*"Night on the Town" takes only 11 minutes
*At the last beauty contest, nobody won 2nd or 3rd.
*The "road hog" in front of you on Main Street is a farmer's combine.
*You leave your jacket on the back of the chair in the cafe, and when you go back the next day, it's still there, on the same chair.
*Everyone knows all the news before it's published; they just read the hometown paper to see whether the publisher got it right.
*The City jail is called amoeba, because it only has one cell.
* The McDonalds only has one Golden Arch.
* The ZIP code is a fraction.
* Second Street is in the next town over.
* The mayor had to annex property to eat a foot-long hot dog.
*You speak to each dog you pass by name and he wags his tail at you.
*You drive into the ditch five miles out of town and the word gets back before you do.
*You dial a wrong number and talk for 15 minutes anyway.
*You can’t walk for exercise because every car that passes you offers you a ride.
*You miss a Sunday at church and receive a get-well card.
*Someone asks you how you feel and listens to what you say.
