Did anyone ever tell you not to prowl? Maybe it was at your Grandmother’s or Aunt’s house where you heard “don’t be prowling around in the back room.” Granny never liked us prowling around in her dresser drawers-Steve was forever warning me and Paul not to prowl through his things when he was gone to work or out hunting. Earlier this week I got to prowl to my hearts content through someones things. 4 boxes of stuff he collected and saved over his lifetime. Even though I had permission-I still kinda felt funny-like maybe I was prowling in Granny’s dresser and she might come in and catch me at it. What did I find? Fascinating stories-most of which occurred right here in Brasstown. Some quite scandalous. Don’t worry I’ll share all I learned.
