The Mail Box Dear Readers, We are gearing up for an extra special Christmas edition of The Mountain Laurel. If any of you old-timers out there have special recollections of old fashioned Christmases and traditions, please write and send them to us. We'd like to let all our readers know the warmth and enjoyment of what an old fashioned Christmas was all about. Address to: The Mountain Laurel, Route 1 Meadows of Dan, Va. 24120. Thank you, Susan Thigpen, Editor Dear Staff: Your September issue helped to relieve a boring rainy evening Wednesday with the T.V. networks still trying to finish up their reruns and nature trying to give us some relief from this heat wave. As the media of today shows, the world problems and issues help make us turn to a life where people can still live and visit that is peaceful and full of beauty that we all have roots and heritage from. I guess the best way to phrase it is, that there is a little Mountain Laurel in all of us. Thank you for an evening of read...

Page 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL OCTOBER, 1983 Browsing Around "BRCWSING AROJND" is a regular feature of TOE MOUNTAIN LAUREL. In this section we feature various pieces of real estate that are for sale iti "The Heart of the Blue Ridge", and give some details and reasons why we find them particularly attractive. We do this out of editorial curiosity and The gravel driveway turns off the paved road and goes behind an old, two story white house and mill. The driveway is nearly a half mile long. On the right of it is a stream and pasture land; on the left are beautiful woods. It winds around and suddenly it opens up into the most peaceful valley. At the end of the driveway is the house. Origionally built in the mid 1940' s, it was the home of Daisy and Calvin Pendleton. She wrote for the Stuart Enterprise Newspaper and was quite a Patrick County historian and poet. I have been told this lovely farm was the source of inspiration for many of her poems and you can spot things on the farm mentioned i...

When I was a little girl, I remember an old mountain heme in the field below Mountain View Methodist Church. It was the homeplace of Jeff and Susan Hylton. One of the rooms was very large, big enough for two rooms. My grandmother told me that at one time, Mr. Hylton ran a post office in one of the back roans. There was a real old lady who lived there with the Hyltons for years. I always thought her name was so unusual; everyone called her, "Miss Pot". J STOP & SHOP Ay // !

He is soft spoken and a true individual, as most young artists are. He is creative and ingenious and his works are truly works of art. His creations are wood and he is meticulously dedicated to his work. Origionally, Kim was a resident of Pennsylvania but his search for a polution free environment brought him to the Heart Of the Blue Ridge, four years ago. He has been building furniture for eleven years and he is truly a master craftsman. The day I met Kim for this interview, I went to his home near milepost 186 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Home for Kim is 5 acres and an old farm house which he is remodeling and which also serves as his shop. Kim is a stickler for details and efficiency and his heme reflects it. Most of his door latches are wooden and each door gently glides open and shut due to a counter-weight system which he built. The examples ...

Page 20 MOUNTAIN LAUREL OCTOBER, 1983 "STAN THE MAN" Hardly anybody around Mayberry, Laurel Fork, Meadows of Dan or Vesta knows Cornelius Columbus Stanley. But mention the name C.C. or Neil Stanley to almost everybody and you're likely to see their faces light up, "Oh yeah, sure I know Neil" or maybe you're going to hear him called, "Stan". There are a number of words which might be used to describe his character or personality; integrity, ambition, thrift, cordiality, skillfulness, tenacity, etc. But the single word which best describes his productive career is, perhaps, illumination. It was by the dim illumination of a carbide head lamp more than 65 years ago in the dark coal mines of Kentucky that Neil earned his first real money; money that was to later pay for his high school and college education at Berea and Roanoke and send him on to a greater role in illumination. Since those days when he was a 16 year old kid from the outskirts of Bankstown he *s had a major management han...

My mother, bless her soul, used to tell me never to eat fish and drink milk at the same time. This combination, she assured me, would cause instant and painful death. I never knew why she thought this but anyone hearing her caution me could not have questioned her sincerity. She was so certain that veating fish and drinking milk with it was fatal that I was convinced at age six. 1 1 11 never forget the inevitable lunch that was served in my school lunch room when I was in the first grade. The meal of the day was fish and there beside every unsuspecting child's plate was a half pint carton of milk. As I went through the lunch line and collected my plate of fish and vegetables, I felt sure that today we would have something to drink in place of milk. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! I panicked and tried to skip the milk but Mrs. Greenway said, "Billy, you've got to take your milk." In a state of shock I stumbled to the table. All along the way were rny innocent schoolmates, devouring fish while t...

Page 22 MOUNTAIN LAUREL OCTOBER, 1983 BLUE RIDGE BOOKSHELF THE NOVELS OF WILMA DYKEMAN BY: PARKS LANIER, JR. There is no more eloquent speaker on behalf of the mountains, their people and their special beauties, than novelist and historian Wilma Dykeman. And there is no better introduction to the fiction and history of the mountain region than her work. , Her Rivers of American history The French Broad begins in the Blue Ridge MountajJis of western North Carolina at the headwaters of the French Broad, and sweeps northwest into Tennessee. Along the way, one receives the fascinating history of the mountain people told in a familiar, anecdotal style but with absolute accuracy. Material that would never be found in an ordinary American history book, or would be lost in a footnote, makes a spellbinding chapter when Wilma Dykeman handles it. Where else would one learn, for example, about the great hog drives across the mountains? No wonder this book has never been out of print since it ap...

We' 11 pass trout streams, historic landmarks, orchards, beautiful old homes and picturesque mountain valleys and ridges. Our trip will consist of total of 51.7 miles and will take a minimum of V/ 2 hours but 2 hours would be more enjoyable. The area we'll be traveling through is noted for its orchards so if you like fresh fruit, come prepared to buy. If you don't bring your camera, more than likely you'll regret it since the scenery is breathtakingly beautiful in this area. Be on the lookout for wildlife, especially deer, since this section has a high population of wild critters. The day we took this tour, we saw a doe and two yearlings on Route 8 between the old Compton's Motel and Tuggle's Gap Motel and Restaurant. They didn 1 1 run but just perked up their ears and stared at lis for a moment before resum...

Telia Mae has a hundred laying hens and she sells eggs to a lot of the folks here-abouts. In addition to the 100 laying hens, she and Bunny have 50 head of cattle and 25 head of sheep. You would think that managing a 60 acre farm and all that livestock would be about all they could handle but it's not. In addition to their regular farm duties, they have taken on an additional chore this fall. They're making molasses. Now they've always made molasses but not like this year.

Page 2 MOUNTAIN LAUREL NOVEMBER, 1983 THE SCHOOLMASTER His merry blue eyes twinkle and a warm and engaging smile wreathes his weathered face as he settles himself into his favorite chair to discuss his favorite subject, education. For education has been his life, even during the years when he was a prominent and prosperous merchant. It's not possible to talk very long with Fred Clifton of Vesta, Virginia and not learn something new. His quick mind is an encyclopedic computer of knowledge and facts that are often emphasized with humorous yarns and stories. He's a pleasure to know. And this writer has known him for more than half a hundred years. He first arrived at our old four roan school - grades 1 through 10 - at Meadows of Dan driving a rather sporty 1930 Chevrolet coupe. He was attired in a handsome three piece suit with a matching visored cap that topped him off very much like a typical English School Master. It was the first day of school in the autumn of 1932 and his reputati...

A SPECIAL THANKSGIVING MESSAGE TO OUR READERS With November being the traditional month of Thanksgiving, we've been wondering how best to say thanks to our many readers and subscribers. It seamed to us that a simple thank you just was not enough. When we dived into The Mountain Laurel in March, we had no idea what we were getting into. We had just enough money between us to buy a typewriter and pay the first month's printing and postage cost. We held our breath while we waited for that first subscription to come in. Not only would it be a sign that folks enjoyed our efforts but honestly, we needed the cash to get us through our next month' s printing and postage cost. Our very first subscribers were Mr. and Mrs. Cruise Howell, of Meadows of Dan, Virginia. I'll never forget how excited we were when their subscription arrived in the mail. Since that first issue of 5,500 copies, we have been extremely fortunate. Our monthly circulation has exploded to over 25,000 per month. That first ...

Page 6 MOUNTAIN LAUREL NOVEMBER, 1983 GROWING UP ON TOGGLES CREEK THE DESERTER'S CABIN About a quarter of a mile below our house on Tuggle's Creek, old timers pointed out what remained of a "deserter's cabin". This was well hidden in huge ivies (Mountain Laurel) only a few feet from the creek. About all that was left were two huge flat rocks that probably served as the hearth stones, a pile of smalles rocks used to build the chirmey and a pile of dirt resulting from leveling the floor. As a kid, I used to let my imagination run wild about it's one time occupants. The logs of which it was built had long since rotted away. Hie cabin perhaps was just one big room with a dirt floor and no windows. While it was called a "deserter's cabin", the name was a misnomer for the men who occupied it had probably never been to war, but were simply evading going. Nor could they be called "draft dodgers" because, actually, there wasn't a draft as such. Soldiers were taken by conscription and these m...

We were the "new kid on the block" and the folks at The Carroll News in Hillsville, Virginia made us feel welcome. I'll never forget the day we met Linda Stanley at Mayberry Trading Post. Linda is the News Editor of The Carroll News and we were being interviewed for a feature story. We each had on our heavy coats and we hiked to the corner rock on Hurricane Hill where the counties of Patrick, Carroll and Floyd all meet. We discussed our dreams for The Mountain Laurel and T.i nria gave us pointers and inspiration. Recently I had the pleasure of visiting the office of The Carroll News and while there, I gained a new insight into the workings of a small town weekly newspaper.

Page 8 MOUNTAIN LAUREL NOVEMBER, 1983 OLD FASHION CHRISTMAS CRAFTS YOU CAN ENJOY MAKING (Make and give a homemade doll to little girls of all ages.) DRIED APPLE HEAD DOLLS To make dried apple head dolls, start with a large, firm apple. Peal it and drop it into salt water to sit for about a half hour. This keeps the apple from turning so dark. Then, with a paring knife, cut away the apple to make a head shape. (Round in back and sides a little flat.) Carve out areas under eyes so a portion is left in the middle for the nose. Remember to leave the part of the forehead and brows sticking out. Shape the nose. Cut a slit out for the mouth. Hollow out a little spot between the mouth and chin. Even carve ears if you wish. You can carve hands out of pieces of apple too. Press apple onto a stick from the bottom of the apple and sit it somewhere it will not touch anything and air can circulate around it until it is good and dry. Each apple dries to have its own personality. The mouth might tu...
