Today’s spooky story is brought to you by Granny Sue. She shares the Appalachian tale of Tailypo, also called Tailybones. Whatever the name, it is a scary story and Granny Sue is a wonderful story-teller who really brings the tale to life.

    I called our Christian Radio Station and talked to Tim Radford (the President of the Radio Station) and he was nice and received me very well. After I reminded him of who you all are,
    that Jerry Wilson was the Grandfather of Chitter and Chatter. He said it was so nice to have some of our local folks singing, and that he loved Chitter and Chatter’s harmony. After he played “Angels Rock Me to Sleep”, he bragged on them again. …Ken

    I enjoyed the story of Tailypo by Granny Sue. I met her one time and Larry, (I think) at a gig you all had at Martin’s Creek. I was sitting near the back and wasn’t paying too much attention to the folks around me when the door flung open and a Rollinator and Beverly and Roy came in. They sat beside me and we talked just like we’d known each other for years. Beverly asked “where’s Tipper”? And I told her was hid up on the stage somewhere.
    But Granny Sue told a story better than Archie Campbell of “Hee Haw” about Rendercella and her sad blisters. That was a good time! …Ken

    Tailypo! Ione of my daughters discovered this story when she was around 10 years old, and our family still says tailypo instead of tail. She is 37 now, but I had to send it to both of my girls.

    That’s a sure enough spooky story. I have to tell you, I never liked spooky stories. The problem is I believe them and that scares me half to death!
