He paused as if to catch his breath. "A few minutes later, a shadow fell across me. It was a tall, old man, dirty from working in the fields in 'baccer or somethin'. I just knew that it was the ghost girl's ghost father. Blackness hit me." He looked down at a root and was nudging it with his left foot. "Well, what happened? How did you get back? Did you ever see the ghost again?', I asked him. "I'll tell you. But if you laugh, I'll knock you up side that head of yourn," he demanded, looking straight at me with those intense brown eyes. He looked back at the other bank. "Weren't no ghosts. She was a real little girl, named after her grandmother, who was dead. She and her family, that man was her paw, lived on the top of the ridge past the graveyard. I got back when her father drove me aro...

THE GREASER He came along just before dark. Grandma was busily clanking the iron skillet across the top of the cook stove, setting the diced potatoes on a cooler griddle so they'd brown all crispy-crunchy. The old hound barked his signal that a stranger was here. We'd already been to the pasture to round up Spot and her calf. Grandma had wrapped the baby in her voluminous apron and pulled a shawl across her shoulders. Taking my hand in her calloused one, she hoisted me along the path, through the sugar bush and over the great patches of shale where I loved to play. Sure enough, Spot was waiting for the gate to be let down. She and Tiny stepped through and plodded up the pock- marked path toward the lean-to barn. Even though we walked directly behind, she knew where we were every step of the way. She swung her head first to one side and then to the other, those big bulbous eyes missing nothing. Grandma got down the threelegged stool and milked her. The calf was barricaded in a corner...

PAGE 16 MOUNTAIN LAUREL OCTOBER, 1987 Rob and his sister lived on a farm with their parents. His father kept two cows to supply the family with fresh milk and cream. His mother saved a lot of cream to make butter. "Butter tastes so much better than oleo," the children said. "Oleo tastes gritty. Butter is smooth." The oleomargarine wasn't as good as today's spread. Oleo came in a cellophane pouch with a tiny gelatin bead of orange color. "Mama, can I squeeze the package?" shouted Rob. "I like to squish the color through it." His younger sister, Beulah, interrupted, "No, you did it last time. I want a turn." "Wait, children," spoke their mother. "If you are going to quarrel over it, I won't let either of you do the squeezing. I'll do it myself. Besides, I'm sure God doesn't like quarreling." Saying that, she picked up the cellophane package and began to squeeze the soft stuff. "Mama," softly said Rob, "Beulah can have her turn. I'll wait till next time." "That's good, Rob. No more qua...

Momma always said she wished we could have Thanksgiving like normal folks. You know, with turkey, cranberry salad, candied yams and three different kinds of pie. She'd bemoan our plight every Thanksgiving morning while we kids sat huddled and yawning in the back seat of the car and Daddy drove silently through the early morning darkness. You have to understand, she wasn't complaining, just wishing, like we all do. But there it was, Thanksgiving would come and off we'd go to Pikeville, us shivering and sniffling, and Momma wishing. The reason for this pilgrimage was a tradition of its own. An ancient country one, with a little modern times thrown in. You see, every Thanksgiving PapPap butchered hogs. Not pigs - not the pink, chubby, curly-tailed characters in children's books. HOGS. Beady-eyed, ri...

So Pap-Pap knew them, but I was never too sure about us. It wasn't that he was addled or senile, or even unconcerned - I think it was just the way it was. Pap-Pap was like no one I'd ever known. He was a quiet man, living his life in the way he thought right, doing things at the times he thought right. He seemed to live such a clean, simple life; he had his hogs and his farm and his family, and for him, that was aplenty. He'd been blessed by God with everything a man needed and, accepting that, I doubt it ever crossed his mind to purely want. Beyond the brains, that is. But Pap-Pap's on Thanksgiving - the sights, the smells, the sounds were enough to make a kid giddy with excitement. All those folks, all that activity! The men walking purposefully with their saws, th...

Experience their hardshop and heart warming togetherness as they struggle through and celebrate life in the Ozark Mountains. Saturday morning was cold and clear with the pale sunlight being blown about by a crispy wind. Joan and Jimmy Jenkins got to our house soon after we ate breakfast. They wanted Jonathan, Andy and me to go with them to our smokehouse so they could see the batch of honey Mama had stored there after Papa and the big boys found the huge bee tree a few days before. Of course, they also wanted us to listen to their final plans for getting even with Dovie and Danny. They told us that we had to really convince those two that living back across the creek and far from town was really lots more exciting than living near the town road. And they said we had to prove it to them and make them think it was really so even if it ...

She said her cow wouldn't have got in the corn patch but Mr. Squires knocked some fence post down when he plowed too close to her fence. Andy told about the justice of the peace listening to what Widow Blooms, Mr. Squires and all the witnesses said and about him threatening to put Mr. Squires and Mr. Martin in jail if they didn't quit cussing in front of the ladies there. Then the justice of the peace ordered Mr. Squires to pay Widow Blooms ten dollars for the loss of her cow and for him to fix her fence that he broke.

In the late 1890's, a handsome young man from Lee County, Virginia went over to Jackson County, Kentucky to visit some relatives. While there he met a pretty young girl. They were married after courting a short time, as the mountain folks didn't seem to involve themselves with long drawn out courtships. From this union, two very special little girls were born, one being my mom. Mom's earliest recollections were of hard times but fun times and a loving family.Times were hard for everyone but there was not the greed and envy as we know it today. No one tried to keep up with the Joneses because the hill people were most all in the same boat; they lived, loved, worshipped and died in the same small communities they were born in. Along about 1910 when Mom was about nine years old, there came a man through Eastern Kentucky talking of the milk and honey in the coal field of Colorado, my grandfather being somewhat of an adventurer decided that's where his family should be, seeing as all the...

Needless to say, this made life a lot easier for her. I had already married before she got running water or indoor plumbing. Our bathtub was round and galvanized. Our swimming pool was the nearest creek. Our food was cooked in iron pots on a coal cook stove. Our water was from a spring. Our milk straight from the cow (unpasteurized of course). Our meat and vegetables were home grown. Our central heat was a fire place. Our central air was the wide open windows and doors. We knew who our neighbors were. Our pleasures centered around our home, school and church. We respected and loved our relatives, especially our elders. Don't think I'm complaining, I'm bragging. We survived and very happily. We had no idea we were poor until someone told us and they never convinced me. God willing, Mom turned 86 this Oct...

Stand still my love and speak sweet things to me. My heart raced, my mouth was dry, and my breath was gone as I dropped to one knee to caress the flowers and retrieve a pink ladyslipper from the forest floor. The object of my affection was not aware of my emotions as we gaily chattered and called back and forth to friends. We were on a Sunday afternoon hike, as practiced by the young people in the days of yore. One or two would start walking along a dusty road without a destination, until joined by friends at almost every house. When quite a crowd was formed a favorite high point was selected as the goal; of our trek. The fall season was most remembered with brightly colored leaves and a crispness in the air. A touch of the hand, a fleeting meeting of the eyes was more than my fourteen year old heart could stand. I turned to shove at a nearby boy and engaged in friendly play to release the emotions of love that held me in it's spell. As I furiously raced about in play, tossing hicko...
