My "mail" town
My mail comes out of here, three times a week. So my postal address is in a town 40 miles away.
Population under 200. No grocery store. Coupla bars. A hardware store. Hey, we got a little library!
Like so many small towns on the High Plains it's struggling to hold itself together in the face of forces it didn't make and doesn't completely understand. But who does? The country is changing at a mighty rate and some of us are just barely hanging on.
