I live in a smaller town next to Geraldine named Groveoak. Way out in the country, laid back, no hurry. Too far out in the country sometimes, have to travel 50 mile round trip to go grocery shopping, Doctor, Pharmacy.

I do not enjoy Geraldine. There is nothing to do here. Most of the teachers at the school do not teach us anything. There are only a few places to eat. There is no night life since the only thing to do in this small town is to go eat or get groceries.
Small quiet little town. One red light :) Pretty farm land. Some great small churches. Hard to find much property cause everyone seems to stay because they love it so much.
