Spreading The October Love

Spreading The October Love

Time to Spread the Love for October. I’d like to send a great big THANK YOU to all the folks who commented during the month. I’d also like to say thank you to those who visit but don’t comment. My subscriber list is increasing, my traffic is up-and it makes me truly happy and grateful for those who are like minded- those who agree the wonderful rich culture of Appalachia is worth saving and worth celebrating. I thank each of you.

Enjoy the day,

    Congratulations Kelli! You’re going to love Pap and Paul’s music. I have both their CD’s and I adore them. Listen to them most every day and will be sure to purchase the next one they decide to produce.
    Tipper, good to hear more people are coming over to enjoy the good life with you and the family. It’s always comforting to come here and feel like I’m part of the family too. xxoo

    I was born and raised in the Appalachian Mts and love reading the stories and listening to the music on the Blind Pig & The Acorn. I have fond memories of living in the Mountains of Virginia, in fact the Mountains were me and my sister’s playground. I live in Alaska now and my sister lives in Tennessee but we still laugh and talk about our childhood and the fun we had growing up in the Mountains.
    My sister is 77 and I am 75 so it was many years ago.
