Welcome to Tennessee. I don't live in Centerville, but it's not too far down the road from where I live, at least time-wise. You will certainly be out in the county.

Hi Alleycat,
Thank you! I just got back from Centerville yesterday and I was very surprised at how "out in the country" it is. It will take time to adjust to but it is so beautiful!! I also learned what the hala was. lol

For those in this area...is the "law" present...I mean, Hickman Co has one traffic light. I was concerned about the animal cruelty issues in the past, especially in Lyles.

Hi Pocketplayer! It was a shock to go from Orange County, California to Centerville. I kept asking my father in law "where are all the people? Are they hiding or what?" He laughed at me and said there's only about 3800 in this town. I'm so out of my element. I'm in trouble. lol

Think of it as an adventure; like going to a foreign country where everyone and everything is strange! You can send postcards back home from the "deep, dark hills of Tennessee". Please, no Deliverance jokes though . . . that might get you into trouble.

Just wait until some guy drives up with a dead deer tied to the front of his muddy truck and offers to share his venison with you.

;-)

That's a good idea! I'll Send postcards from the "hala" I think it means hollow=woods? I knew that there was hunting but dead bambi? That's so sad.

Actually, hollow (often pronounced holler) is the shallow valley between hills; as in "hills and hollows". In some areas the hills, or in some cases mountains, were too steep to farm or build on; the hollow was the relatively flat area between hills that could be cleared and farmed and where people would build their homes. Nowadays it's also taken on the meaning of just being back in the hills or in a rural, wooded area.

Tell your friends back is California that venison is a health food; it's free-range and low in fat. Well, it's free-range until someone shoots it with a 30-06. ;-)

You probably need to be careful where you live. Hitting a deer or wild turkey with your car isn't a lot of fun. I almost hit a wild turkey while I was doing about 70 mph one time; trust me, when you see a wild turkey about to come through your windshield it will look as big as a 747 or a flying elephant.
