PAGE 10 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1987 Editor's Note... The following is one of a series of articles written by Grace Cash. She lives in Flowery Branch, Georgia. Watch for more of her stories in the future. Tenant farmers in the 1920's - and even long thereafter, on into the Great Depression years of the 1930's - frequently moved from farm to farm. The year I remember most vividly was in 1924. That Fall when we moved, we hadn't lived at the rented redland farm a full year. We moved from the Macedonia community to a farm four miles to the north. Papa and my brothers loaded our twomule wagon, and an uncle came with his wagon. It required careful handling to pack into the two wagons our bedsteads, mattresses and feather beds, tables, chairs, a dresser and a homemade cabinet - at Christmas the hiding place for cakes and pies - and a variety of kitchen utensils. Little hands and big hands worked rapidly to find a corner for toys, vases, a special cherry-printed platter, dishes, tableware - v...

CHILD OF THE 1920'S CONTINUED FROM PAGE 10. the big three-story schoolhouse, and go on to other schools. We hadn't seen the house - none except Papa. It looked more inviting than other tenant houses we had lived in. The house on the hill - a much lesser house than the one we left - wasn't painted. It had only four rooms and two porches, but it was surrounded with a white sandy yard! We had gotten away from tracking in slabs of red clay, whether on the feet of adults, children or visitors, dogs or cats. Regardless of how often Mama scoured with the corn husk mop, she couldn't keep the floors clean. Now when she made new corn husk mops and fresh brooms from straw we would gather in outlying broomsage fields, she wouldn't be a slave to red mud, and soon the two fireplaces would be plastered snow white with white mud from the verdant bottomland. Unloading the wagons at the twin chimney "new house" was a time of exhilaration and hope. We scouted out the rooms, choosing "the girls' room" ...

PAGE 12 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1987 It was in early Spring, a beautiful sunny day, not a cloud in the sky and the sky was so blue it almost hurt the eye to look up at it. The air was just crisp enough for a light jacket. I was visiting my youngerbrother who still lives in the Brushy Mountains of North Carolina about six miles, as the crow flies, from where we were born and raised. He, my younger sister and I were sitting around discussing the use-to-bes of yesteryear, reminiscing I guess you would say. It was such a pretty day that we decided to take a walk down memory lane. It had been a long time since any of the family had been back to the old home place. The last time we went there was no road up the hollow. Just a gully overgrown with bushes and briers, we had to almost cut our way through. We said this time we will go down the mountain by the Re id Hubbard and the Haywood Estep places. We put on our walking shoes, climbed into my brothers old jalopy and headed down the mountain...

Carson I.A. Ritchie in his book, "INSECTS, THE CREEPING CONQUERORS" gives some fascinating information about crickets in captivity. The ancient Greeks kept crickets in great cages made of reeds. In Spain, crickets are kept in cages to sing during Mass. Pairs of crickets are also hung from the ceiling in homes, in light, two-storied cages. In early American pioneer days, many immigrant German boys kept crickets as pets, a carry-over from Germany. In their native Germany, most boys had several boxes for keeping crickets. In the Far East, the keeping of crickets in cages reached the dimensions of a cult or art. In ancient times, there were even cages made to wear in the sleeve of a garment, so the owner could have constant musical companionship. No home was too poor or too rich to have some sort of a cage for a cricket. Cricket cages in the Orient have varied from crude wooden boxes to embossed gourds with elaborately decorated stoppers of jade or tortoise shell, to pierced boxes of wo...

*~* I c | J' These maps are lettered and numbered by block. The attractions and services listed in the Blue Ricjge Digest are also listed in lettered-numbered sections that correspond to the map. In order to locate the services available within a specific area simply determine the block number of the area you're interested in by using the numbers on the left side of the map and the letters across the top of each map. After determining the block reference, (example: H-l 1 included the area around Meadows of Dan, Virginia), check the Blue Ridge Digest listings beginning on page BRD2 for the services available in that area. Each of the blocks encompass an area that is approximately a 45 minute drive left to right and approximately a 30 minute drive from top to bottom across each block. For instance, Floyd, Virginia is in block H-10. If you are going to Hillsville, Virginia from Floyd, it will be about a 45 minute drive (see chart on page BRD8).

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL JULY, 1987 We lived at Meadows of Dan in 1908. My dad, Putnam Boyd, was a hunter. Not for the sportsmanship of it, but for the survival of his family. Many mountain people hunted and killed wild game for food for their tables. Most people had vegetables, milk and butter. Meat was hard to come by. My dad had traps everywhere that people would permit him to have them. There was a large family of us children. Our job was to go to the traps every morning to see what we caught overnight. We children would take Rabbits and some small animals out of the trap. Our dad had to look after the larger ones. We caught Rabbits, Squirrels, Opossums, even groundhogs. We did not always eat the game we caught. By our Mom being a good cook we managed to eat very well, we even ate Possum. The way she cooked it we ate it very well. She would boil the Possum until tender, then she would put it out flat in the bread pan and salt and pepper it good and brown it. She would bake sweet ...

My ancestors crossed the mountains, forded the streams, invaded the wilderness, and learned to "make-do M with the food they could catch, kill, pick wild or grow in forest clearings. They successfully prepared for winter's onslaught to such an extent that it became a part of the genes and chromosomes to be handed down through the generations. These pioneer ancestors of mine, all buried in Carroll, Floyd, Grayson and Patrick Counties, would turn over in their graves if I didn't follow the "lay-by-and-store" principle, so at the beginning of each summer, I dutifully push my hair back under a bandana, tie on a crisp, fresh apron, enter my workshop, which is called "kitchen" at other times of the year, close the door and "fall to". I stem, cap, peel, pare, core, dice, break, seed, pit, scald, blanch, strain, sterilize, pack, slice, quarter, silk, skin, shell, look, discard, inspect, hull, crack, pick-out, snap, trim, scoop, pinch, shuck, grate, and steam.
