Since so many have requested version 2 of the book, I have started working on that. I had no idea how much information I was going to receive from all of you, and what a wonderful surprise.

The first copy took almost 5 years to write because it involved so much research. Now, much of you have contributed tons of wonderful living memories of our ancestors, and facts that really tell our story!

I will be keeping everyone updated on details as I pull them all together! The next copy of the book will be a hard copy, not an eBook. I have had so many folks wanting a  hard copy and they were willing to help with the cost that, I felt it was time.

Hugs to all,

Carolyn

This past weekend, I made new friends! It wasn’t just social, it was cosmic! We connected in ways only we and them could understand. Friendship that will last a lifetime.

I dropped out of high school, got married and had my children. I had always wanted to graduate and go to college but chose a family instead. Years later, my dream came true. I studied hard and realized you never get to old to follow your dreams. I graduated in 1999 with honors and earned an MBA!

Chickens! Kentucky Fried…

One wonderful morning, I watched my grandmother ever so carefully pic just the right chicken for dinner and what a FAT one it was. After all, she needed to feed about 10! She walked up to the perfect BIG fat chicken and placed her hand behind it’s neck and with a quick jerk, the process began. We plucked, and plucked and plucked! You know the rest…

Flour, lard, salt and pepper to taste and dinner was served along with veggies and fresh baked bread.

Just another memory of dinner with grandma!

Like pork? When I was very small, I remember stepping outside and watching a ritual I will never forget. Exactly how do people in Kentucky begin the winter. First hand witness, I can and will tell… story to be continued.

Education… hmmm

Well, my mother graduated from the 8th grade. My Dad from the 3rd. Where did that leave me? I needed more out of life so I started my journey. I finished high school years after my kids were born because it was a lifelong dream of mine and yes, I was a high school dropout! I started collage solely to give my son a ride to college. In the process, I earned a A.S., a B.B.A, and an M.B.A. and still feel I have not filled my mind with the knowledge I desire. Thus, this blog was born…
