    Ever go down Stadium Drive around Bluefield College? The hollow I learned to shoot in was where i'm from. It got filled in after the the houses were razed for development. Curious.

    We drove by the college on the way to Deskins grocery. I went to several colleges. University of Ohio,UVA and Hollins. All great places to pick up girls. Never attended one tho. They built a nice hospital after they filled in that holler. I remember sitting on grannies porch and listening to that wall of rain coming towards the house.

    Pocahontas,Welch,Beckley. Glen Allen,Marion Va to boot. Haven't been since my last granny passed. As much as they bitched when they didn't get their names in the paper when dad died(oops) they didn't bother to come to the funeral. Rephrase that. The biggest crybaby's didn't.

    Leedy and Goodman.Granny on one side was half Cherokee and granddad was an orphan on the other side. Basic Appalachian mountain folks. Mines or the railroad,sharecropping was about all you could be. Mechanics and body men. Most went into the military. Wish I had that pic of granddad in his WW1 uniform. He had a temper. I've been told I resemble him a bunch of times.
