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.

Thanks for that 2dCousinDave, I to grew up in Blackey, been across that swinging bridge many times and played at the depot. Went to school up on the hill, before it burned. I have fond memories of Blackey. Enjoyed reading your story!

Did you know there was an earthquake in Blackey just a few weeks ago? My brother still lives in Whitesburg. First time I can remember that there ever was an earthquake in our mountains.
