“Now when I first come to this creek, we broke up our land with a mule and a single-footed plow. We made plenty of corn t’do us all year long—never bought no corn when I first come t’this creek. Take what we called a single-footed plow, break up th’ground and then go and lay it off, cover it with a single-foot plow, drop it by hand. Now it’s changed so that my grandchildren couldn’t build a fire in that wood stove ’cause they don’t know how. Well, I don’t know how t’drive a car, so I guess their way of doin’ is just as good as mine. But I like my way of doin’ the’best.”
