I grew up in rural Western North Carolina smoking rabbit tobacco, munching chinquapins, learning how to cuss, stalking rabbits and squirrels through the woods, jumping out of the way of timber rattlers, taking sips of moonshine, dipping my toes into the creeks and swimming holes, chasing corn-fed girls, and locking the wheels of my hotrod onto the shoulders of the curves so that centrifugal force would not throw me into the Ivy River.
What in the hell has happened to this newsgroup?
Just guessin' that the former denizens are either in rest homes or
cemeteries. It was interesting at one time. There were people from
Australia, Britain, and some Americans.
Plus the number of farmers continues to decline. I see all sorts of
abandoned farmsteads in east central Nebraska. I grew on a farm and can
point to some spots where there were farmsteads. Now there are fields.
