I guess I am an old geezer. I only missed one question about the gum. I
missed that one because my Mother wouldn't let us chew gum. She thought it
was a "nasty" habit.
I have been living away from the mountains of Eastern KY for a long time but
it seems you can't take the mountain out of me. I was doing some sewing and
"jobbed" the needle in my finger. My great nephew asked me what I was
talking about. I realized that was a word I had grown up with. Another
saying he gets a kick out of is when I say are you taking a cold instead of
catching a cold.
This time of the year I really miss the mountains. There is nothing more
beautiful than "The Breaks" in the Fall. The colors just seem to be more
vivid there. I roamed those hills when I was a child, long before it was a
State Park. Now that tells you I really am an old geezer.
