I met you years ago.Jimmy wayne.is my cousin.You prombably remember my mom Linda Mitchell.Hope your doing good.Lisa Jo and Jimmy went to Smoky Mts., with Kevin and his family.If you dont know,Lisa Jo is in church now.Trust me,she is on the job for Jesus.The tracks never really scared me,but it was the 70s when Robin and me walked them.People talk bad about boxtowm.They dont know that in its day,it was a world of its own.Sure people were poor,but they were true friends and helped everybody.Now Scottsville is boring and alot of people think there better than others.The truth of the matter,people that grew up in boxtowm were better people.What little they had, they were thankful and if they had more and you needed it,they gave it to you.Now people wants everything plus. I go through boxtown sometimes and think, it was better back then.Have a great day.Got to keep the stock barn stories to myself or girl bags will go over alot of peoples head lol. Jamey Mitchell

The midget,thats what it was called and i think the fair is now 10 dollars everynight.They opened Beechbend back up.I went not long ago.Its nice,we got our tickets at JR FOOD store for 23.95 thats tax included.Now at Beechbend cokes are free.They also bought The Sea Dragon from Micheal Jacksons estates.Its nice.The square in Scottsville they have ruined it.Scottsville will never be the same.
