Kentucky Memories #1: Uncle Will's Soul|
By Sharon Brown on May 4, 2010

Writings from Kentucky: Growing up in Blackey by 2dCousinDave|
By Sharon Brown on April 8, 2010
The terrain and the people of Kentucky are so varied, those of us who grew up here never have the same stories to tell. Wonder of wonders, though, I recently met a gentleman who grew up only a handful of miles from where I was born. We were probably there at the same time, walking those same dusty roads, and climbing the very same mountains. Here's a story from our All Across Kentucky Cubit, written by my friend Dave. Please leave a comment for him on the threads that follow, and you are welcome to visit our Cubit.
