Hills of Kentucky

Post  Josh on 11/7/2011, 5:58 pm

My Dad was born in Kentucky, and we went to see where he once lived when he was little. I really like Kentucky, I would like to live there someday. I see how Sqat_Johson has such a good garden now...the weather!....just kidding.... But for real everything was still growing really good there!

I saw some pretty cool things while I was there. My Dad showed me a fireplace my great grandpa (who was a Comanche) built, and it's been standing over 100 years.

Then he took me to a place called Pine Knob, and we went up a huge hillside,

I am so glad you had an opportunity to visit where your Dad lived when he was little. Nice memories for both of you.

Nice photos too!

Yup, the weather is different, huh?

Oh, and in Ozarkian/hillbilly speak, KNOB = MOUNTAIN. They try and tell you it's just a small hill......don't fall for it. A knob is going to be a lot of work to climb.

Kentucky is a beautiful state. I love the pics and the family history lesson. I bet that fireplace still works like a charm.
