I wish I had known about this before I drove to St. Louis yesterday, I would have gone today instead to get some donuts!
Daisy, my relatives are from a small Ohio town, and I can still remember the year they got Walmart. That was like the greatest thing ever, my cousins were all like "YEA, we're an actual city now, we're getting a Walmart!" :)
It took me a while to adjust, but now I'm used to it. We live about 65 miles from the closest Walmart, it used to be 80! There is a McD's and Wendy's about 7 miles from me, but I dare not eat at the McD's because it is quite possibly the most dirty one in the country. Oh and there is a Pizza Hut that we go to once and a while, otherwise everything is local Mom and Pop type businesses.
