Full moon in appalachia


My favorite post by far this month-was Undone In Sorrow. And I’m thankful you guys stuck around for me to tell you about Ola Belle Reed and the story running around in my head: My Name Is Cora Lee Mease -before I finally shared the video with you.

I also enjoyed the re-run of Southern Moon along with Pap and Paul’s tight harmony. So the giveaway for August-is an altered photo of that southern moon shining down on my house nestled here in the mountains of Appalachia.

And the winner is…. Rhonda Haslam. Send your address to me and I’ll send you the photo Rhonda.

If you missed any of the hoopla surrounding the video Undone In Sorrow-just click on the any of the words in orange above and you can jump over and read about it and see the video. And don’t forget all the commenters names in orange-have a website too-jump over for a visit and I know you’ll be glad you did.

    Tipper–Keep spreading the love. Even better, keep spreading the word. Incidentally, tomorrow is Christmas in September. Bet you aren’t familiar with that and I must admit I wasn’t until I moved here to South Carolina.
    It’s opening day of dove season–part family reunion, part all-day fun with dinner on the grounds, part renewal of the ages-old rites of fall hunting, and all fun. By 7:00 p.m. tomorrow I’ll likely have a limit of doves and know I’ll have a belly full of chicken bog, hull pie (scuppernongs), barbequed pork, and more fixin’s that a rotund fellow like me ought to eat. I’m guessing it’s one part of the hunting equation the Deer Hunter isn’t familiar with. I’ve hunted with the same family for more than a quarter of a century and they’ve hosed a hunt for 75 years and over four generations.

    Tipper, I look forward to reading your post each day. Your topics have brought back so many memories of days gone by and loved ones passed on. Thank you for your hard work and dedication to keeping the rich traditions of the “mountain folk” alive!
    God Bless

    My husband and I moved to Tennessee a year ago, we just had to come back to our “roots”. I really enjoy your site. Just wished we had come back years ago. But the Lord knew when to let us come. Thanks for your wonderful site.

    It was an exciting month that included your birthday and mine along with Ola, Cora and Undone.
    Looks like we have some exciting days ahead as well!
