      Wow! Such heart and respect spoken, by this woman, for the memory of their ancestors and the connection to the soil.

        As of 2014 the population was 2,154. Still a pretty small town.

        I’d love to travel through this part of the country and go back into the hills and mountains and sit on porches and just get to know some of the folks, those that have been born and bred there.

        Maybe some day.

    I thought living in a moldy leaky 1993 trailer with no indoor plumbing was rough.

    I guess I still got it pretty good.

    People nowadays are a bunch of fkng puzzys.
