On a back road, deep in a holler, is a small general store that has been there for one hundred years. Actually, this year was the 100 year anniversary for it to be open. Anyway, a friend of mine had a book signing there this weekend. He wrote a book about sour dough bread. Great topic in my opinion. This is not his first accomplishment. Soc Clay (he's the one in the red shirt and hat.) is a known writer/ photographer for many outdoor magazines. Plus, his photos have been used world wide. He's very good.
In the back of store they had Christmas songs being sung. (This is my Mom,Dad,cousin and family friend singing.) Notice the little girl on the right, she just sat there and watched everything with wonder in her eyes. She is soooo cute! I don't know who she is.
There was probably over 100 people that stopped in that day for the book signing. It was great!
I have decided to start looking for and appreciating things about the Appalachian culture. There is sooo much to appreciate here! I think I will do a few posts on the culture and natural beauty that is found here. Some is VERY unusual. So if ya ever wanted to know anything about the Appalachian Mountains or the culture of the people, leave me a comment. I'll see what I can find out.
So until next time,
