Mom in Her Writing Nook ...

She was working on the "About the Authors" section of "Echoes Across the Blue Ridge" when I captured this one morning. Though you can't see it, her coffee cup was within gentle reach that morning. Roxie is at her feet.

Wesley and Mary's Answered Prayer



Some years ago our daughter went to visit an ancestral grave in Campground Cemetery

in the Qualla Boundary, While there she noticed the grave of our grandfathers brother Wesley Vance Miller and his wife Mary. She noticed that Wesley died on September 4th 1921 and Mary died on September 5, 1921.

I discussed this with a cousin who does genealogy and found out there was quite a story.

Wesley and Mary always prayed that one would not… Continue

Memories of Uncle Bill

I have listed my impressions of William J Miller..who I am proud to say was my uncle.

Uncle Bill left his native Asheville when he was almost 18, immediately after his graduation from Lee Edwards High School. He went to live with a brother in Cleveland Ohio, and Louis Selzer gave him a job at the Cleveland Press.



William J. Miller was at one time the Editor of The New York Herald Tribune. He occupied Horace Greeley's old office.… Continue

Medicinal Remedies From Appalachia



As far as sickness goes-last winter was the worst we've had since the girls started school. Illnesses started before Christmas and lasted clean till May. Chitter and Chatter had strep throat about 5 times between them-of course they never had it simultaneously-you know when just one of those expensive tests would have been enough to prescribe medication for both of them-no they had it individually, usually a few weeks to a month… Continue

Cold As Whiz



Bitter cold has made it's way to the southern Appalachian Mountains. Tonight is forecast to be the coldest night of the year. The temp this morning was a frigid 3 degrees-in my opinion thats just about cold enough.





When describing just how cold it is, folks can get pretty imaginative like:



* Cold as whiz (I always say this when it's cold-I have no clue what it means.)

*… Continue

LOL In Appalachia

Some laughter by way of Pap and an old friend Ollie.





Horace was well known for being a prankster-never one to pass up a chance to poke some fun at someone. He had a new tool in is arsenal-a dog whistle. One afternoon Horace went up the road to visit Ollie. After arriving on the porch to sit a spell, Horace told Ollie to call his dogs-he wanted to see if they were any good. Ollie called to his dogs and one came bounding up the steps just… Continue

Mary Of The Wild Moor



This week's Pickin' & Grinnin' In The Kitchen Spot at the Blind Pig & The Acorn features a song of old Mary Of The Wild Moor. Like most songs-this one has a neat history. The song tells the sad lonesome story of a mother and child freezing to death because her father couldn't hear her cries for help-doesn't get much sadder than that.



It's hard to imagine a world where information… Continue
