Down home .....once again.

Post by B.M. Barrelcooker » Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:41 pm







When I was growing up one Sunday a month my family would drive a little over an hour to my mothers home county to go to the little country church where my folks were married have a home cooked meal at my grandmothers house and just " visit " for the rest of the day.

Now days I make that visit once or twice a year and visit those limestone springs and streams that my sharecropper grandfather shared with me. It was my introduction to flyfishing .......my introduction to adventure..... it was something I can never quite catch up with. But I try.

I left those sweet limestone springs on the highland rim near the Tennessee line and came back home to the swamp lands that I call home . It was a good day and time for a good steak.

A fine day.


I think the "BM" on this mound actually stands for "bowel movement"; one of Franzen's, if I'm not mistaken...
