Me too! I'm also glad that there were no caves around, or they would have stepped right over your friend for another bandwagon ride toward trying to make up something about the commissioner, offering nobody anything constructive whole on their. Merry way.

Got "stuck" in the rain on shoulder of Twn Crk School road two months ago. Not ONE car passed that DIDN'T ask if I needed help. Ultimately some Good Samaritans with trucks and chains pulled us out... and neither would accept payment.

While I may not agree with the "politics" of many Blairsville folk, I'm darned thankful to have them as neighbors!

I try to come to Blairsville every month for a week. I can always tell when I need me some Blairsville friendly, I get uptight, quick smiling, and forget to kiss my wife. One day in Blairsville I am back to Mr. friendly. That was my business nick name for years.
Even though I am a Foridian born in Kentucky, you Blairsville people are my true friends.

Great post.

The folks in Blairsville are some of the nicest, kindest, most helpful people you could ever know.

If I stay at the Cabin there more than a few days, the pain of leaving to return to the outside world is overwhelming.

Are you white or black or a mix? Do you oppose education? Why do you only choose gay, Asian, and black friends? Do you dislike Latino and straight people?

I could not hate; never. A few people may have trouble with love; confused maybe, never have been, and feel they should stay away or give up. Of course you could not help. I only had questions I guess they were race ones that's ok, never meant to offend.

Beware, people will treat you nice most of the time but when you need them don't count on them!! I have lived here all my life and I have treated everyone nice that I have known. when I needed someone there was no one there! If you get sick watch out! make sure you have lots of money incase something happens because no body will be there! The nicer you are the meaner people get.

Except for a few excerpts, this has been a very educational subject. Nice to know there are some decent people in the area. I hope to find more when I visit Blairsville later. Hopefully there is enough to move there, but I never know until I see for myself.

Well, I am taking or should say she is taking me for a drive tomorrow. First time
Since having both knees replaced. She can't come to Blairsville in October, her knees can't be in one position over an hour. Maybe I can bring Teddy.
