    "Pop Off Bench"

    My dad and his 2 brothers ran a general merchandise store in the 30's and 40's. That had a big wood stove in the center of the store. The men in the community gathered there during winter time to chat, play checkers, chew tobacco etc. your courthouse bench reminded me of them.

    The wooden porch swing..Another Blue Blog

    I loved sitting on a porch firh fanily and friends. Growing up on a dirt road we did that a lot. Now the road is a main highway and we have to keep all the windows closed to talk in the house. No more sitting in the yard or on the porch. I love the good ole days. I have no brothers or sisters or parents living who enjoyed it with me then,

    Mountain Folk...Part 1

    One day I think I will go back to that small town. Those small towns once you know the people and they know you are the best family one person could ever want in the whole world. So, when you begin to wright the rest of your story remember the kindness of that southern country way because I personally never found that type of love again. The community love, neighbors love, family love. I truly miss them and grief for the loss. I think if anything could keep me from not letting multiple sclerosis from taking my ablilites complety away! It's my dream of once living back once were I was and typing in my ole home were i started at nimberwill gap to CD.. amd watching my Son's suceed on..and having my friends back.............................................. ..............

    Mountain Folk...Part 1

    When you described your adventure it reminded me of my own home that I left not only 8 years ago. It seems a million years ago. I think I would give anything to go back to that way of life. I am handicapped now , but I remember the kudzu that surrounded me like a comfort blanket and the Appalachian trail was right down the road (I was the first house right before it) there was a gas station that no longer functional right at the end of the road . The college was a University I attended there for Nursing that I graduated and worked at the rural hospital there. That small town was my home Dahlonega Ga, I would do anything to have my home back,on nimblewill gap rd. and my family the weavers. I came to Michigan and my biological family disowned me except my mom after I loosed my career and was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis . I pray one day I can go back . I know its my home. I stay isolated here. and no one visits me. only if I call in need of snow off my drive with a bobcat. But physical hugs none..kisses on the cheek none.. isn't that what families do? when you feel sad ? I forgot what that feel 's like without asking my mom if she could and usually , "IM too busy"...,However , thats if she comes down. Now she does help me do my paper work. I give here my money and she will pay my bills and at times she even helped me with bills. but, nothing is like a spontanous hug, or kiss or saying I love you. She tell's me i should just know it , it doesnt need to be said. so does the same go for touch as well? I guess so.....

    My old Fleece Jacket

    I guess I'm not the only one with a beloved sweater. I have my Dad's. I wear it proudly, although it is obviously a man's sweater, and too large for me. It's blue with leather elbow patches...and it, too has that "special" kind of warmth.

    Thanks blue...

    Wow, what a lot of memories in that fleece jacket. I sure enjoyed reading that.

    I have a few things from my grandma that I stick my nose into so I can smell that nice smell of hers. I hope the smell stays a long time. I miss her greatly.

    Thanks, blue for sharing. My family had a porch swing and I remember staring up at the stars at night while swinging on it. This brought back memories. God bless.

    The wooden porch swing..Another Blue Blog

    Thank You so much; you have a way of reminding me of that which is important and you jog my memory and mine such pleasant recollections. "Red Rover Red Rover send Blue62 Right Over" We had a swing out on the "veranda" at the parsonage where I spent some of the happiest days of my childhood.

    The "potato peeling porch" was off the "kitchen el" on our old farm house between the main house and the barn.....it was a place to sit on the old wooden kitchen chair and peel veggies, snap beans or shell peas. The "veranda" was on the front of the house and had a swing and/or some aluminum rocking chairs.....it was where you sat when work was done....and could smile and nod at passers by.

    oh blue, how simply beautiful. In my minds eye, I was there, watching each scene unfold in living color as it happened. Thank you for sharing another great treasured memory with us.
