Blind Pig & The Acorn Book


I’m still hearing good news about my book- Appalachia Through My Eyes. So this month’s prize is another digital download. If I keep giving them away-surely the good news will keep coming my way!

The winner for April is…Crockett!

Don’t forget to click on a commenter’s name above and go for a visit-all the ones in orange have a website of their own-I know you’ll be glad you did.

    I read your blog early in the AM and sometimes I forget that you don’t know that. But I always do. I tried to buy your book online but didn’t really want to sign up for the company because I guard my email with my life. Would it be possible to send you money and get it right from you? I would really like that. Thank You for what you do. Sandy

    What kind of chicks do you have…
    Ain’t they just a “ball of fluff”..but it don’t last long as them little feathers come in quick!
    We have…4 Ideal236 (white sexlink)….
    4…Old English Bantams(hen/rooster mix) very sweet…One just started crowing yesterday morning…so funny..we thought we had three hens and one rooster but we have two roosters and two hens….
    Two Wyandotte pullets…Black and white one is named Dottie and one is named Speckles per me..Was supposed to be two hens…but one is crowing..They say not to name your chickens, that then they are hard to kill..errr put in the pot!
    What is that about “A crowing hen always comes to no good end!”
    I’m going to take that doggone pullet back and let it crow for the party I bought it from!..The only difference is ones’ waddles are getting redder and longer than the other…feathers are all the same and no spurs yet, a sure sign of a rooster….LOL I have heard that a dominate hen will try to crow???
    What to do, what to do?…LOL Well, if it lays eggs, I guess it can crow all it wants! LOL
    Thanks Tipper,
    and ED let us not get into axons, dendrites, neurons and synapses…I just know mine don’t always fire right…actually some of mine are completely dead, like an old C battery….LOL

    Tipper-I bought your little treasure and it’s worth every penny and much much more. It really is a look at mountain life from another person’s prospective. Anybody that hasn’t gotten it just don’t know what they are missing.
    Now, all seriousness aside-
    Shotgun shell…Winchester 12 Ga. hanging in a Noose…Young lady playing a fiddle in the background…I think this is a subliminal message to some young feller. Try and fiddle with my daughter…Lights Out!!
    What’s a synapses? Is that when both of my brain cells get together. That’ll have to wait ’til the other one wakes up.
    Oh! and does anybody but me connect the name Crockett with Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling?

    That list of names gets longer each month! Congratulations, Tipper. You do such a great job keeping us all entertained. There is something so comforting about mountain lore and the people who live it. Happy May to one and all…..

    LOL, B. Ruth, sounds to me like things are connecting very well.
    Tipper, It’s a great book. I know one day soon it will take off, leave the nest, and go viral!
    Did you have a birthday party for the Deer Hunter?

    All seem to go together…and another thing…I think that shell has a string to turn on the light of love…
    Thanks Tipper…..Guess it’s just too early in the morning for my brain to be connecting or synapses firing…LOL
