My first pink diamond!

Wow, we had gone back to Hyden, Kentucky  and I was about 8 years old. There was this old family store and I had five cents in my collection.

Carolyn Davidson Hicks’ birth

Remember when? I do! I remember a white room. Everyone was dressed in white. Although I could not see clearly, I remember.

Ever heard of that place? My Dad worked there  and it was about 23 gates long on Highway 62, between Charlestown and Jeffersonville, Indian! More coming soon…


Dad Tried to Quiting Smoking…

My dad struggled to stop smoking before he was killed by a gun. That is another story I’ll need time before I am ready to write about it. Anyway… The story goes back a few years before he died, when he would ask me to light his Winston for him. He’d say, just put it up to the fire and …Continue reading →
