The mines paid a pretty penny for them too.
Owch that accident was a doozy man, little Imposter almost bought the farm that time....lost a bunch of teeth and took a great wallop to the noggin, but the good Lord pulled me through it. I was back to work within weeks.
Man Oh man that was ages ago. Things were a lot simpler around here back when the whole country needed coal and everyone wanted to build a big old house. Such is life I guess. Always changing.
I must admit I do chew from time to time too, but not every day, I got off the cigarettes with scoal ...spot on old boy, as usual, spot on.
Now MissE wont want to see my mug LOL.
You know nanny better than that!

I left my top ones in a lady's apartment once. I didn't even try to make up an excuse I just rang the bell and said " Hey darlin I left my teeth in there last night and I need them back." LOL
Man Oh man. I found them down in the couch, dont ask how they got down in there lol.
She still called me the next evening though!

Btw. Our group met several months ago and had a blast!! Then recently on my lonnng trip I had lunch with one of the group that lives close to my better half. That person had driven many many miles to join all of us earlier. Nice times.

I know what you meant Nanny, you look deeper than the surface, like me. You know Imposter loves you.

I need my Nanny bad right now. So sick, have you ever had that weak, sick feeling sick, when a glass of water feels like it weighs a hundred pounds? No amount of high dollar cold remedies will ease it much. I need a warm blanky and a good Nanny to wipe a cold rag over my forehead.
I need a good story too.. OH! the one about humpaburn and that nasty old twenty foot tall grizzly bear that ate his arse off! That would be so good right now.
Wonder what ever happened to humper? I hope the old chap is alright and smoking the good stuff too, if that's what makes him happy.
Goodnight people, please pray for me to beat this bug soon.

You are right on. That is why I keep them in the fridge. I started doing that when we had that glut of lady bugs and woke up with a cup full of teeth and bugs. YUK!!!! There are quite a few of those bugs again this fall-winter but not as bad as a few years ago.

Plus, I only wear the lower plate when I eat and is why I forget them sometimes since I don't eat out very often. Just the lowers are fake, uppers are still real for now.

Sounds to me like poor Imposter needs a nurse-caregiver worse than a nanny. I hope his condition does not require chicken-noodle soup. The only time I ever got really drunk, I tried eating that stuff a couple days later and when it came out with grease floating on top... I was sick again for 2 more days and now I do not drink whiskey or eat chicken-noodle soup. LOL

Good thinking in the disclaimer. This world has become a litigious one.
Miss E, please speak American. That lit.... word is not even in my Random House Dictionary...But I think I get your drift!!

BTW, anyone around y'alls area ever heard of Newman's Ridge, Hancock County or Alex Stewart? What a very remarkable little ole pioneer of a man he was. Some 7 years ago we visited the Musuem Of The Appalachia and I bought a book about this man. Second time of reading it is just as good as the first. What can anyone tell me of the Melungeon people? Seriously........

Up drinking more dayquil. I dont know much about the Stewart guy but I know a thing or two about Melungeons. The ones around here claim to be Portigee -that's Melungeon for -from Portugal.
They are a tough lot, even more...down home? backwards? Lol I dont know how to put it.
They're even more hillbilly-ish than a regular hillbilly.
Often prone to hard liquor but not afraid of hard work. They usually marry other Melungions. They hardly ever get sick, they're good to have as friends and bad to have as enemies. They can eat old meat that you and I would likely die from LOL and not get the least bit sick.
They party like hell Saturday night but always show in (mostly Pentecostal) church on Sunday. They get mad easily but are willing to make up fast after a tussle.
Its hard to outshoot, outhunt, outfish outrun or more or less beat a Melungeon at any sport especially wrestling, they have there own style of fighting/wrestling and it works....I know that from experience. They are darker skinned than a regular poor white trash hillbilly but will fight about it if you tell them as much...All in all- an interesting, although dangerous lot.

I am up putting another log on the fire. I agree with everything you posted here although what I read is that the Portigee claim is a ruse based on bigotry and actual DNA studies have reflected that the Melungeons are descendants of sub-saharan African Males and European women mixed in with some Native American. A lawsuit from 1865 was the basis for the Portugese claim based on the fact that blacks could not own land, etc. while being Portugese was more acceptable. Some of the surnames listed include those from my maternal grandmother's side and she did have some of the physical traits of the Melungeons and was from the Appalachian area near Wise Virginia. I am not claiming to be a Melungeon although it would seem possible. Have a good day and Get Well soon.

Melungeon? Over by Wise? Hmmmm. I know a few people that claim that as home. Now I've got to research that a little bit.
About 3o minutes ago i got a text from my nephew (21). And he was bemoaning the fact he "lost" a little keychain pocket knife checking in at the Orlando airport. The little knife had been a gift from us. They let him through with it when he left West Virginia but its gone now:-(

Well if you have a little Melungeon in you then you have some tough, long living, healthy stock. I think the trait of being kind of racist is a cultural thing, probably handed down and stemming from what you mentioned about how the Portugal thing got started. we still have a lot of that racist nonsense around here to this day believe it or not.
I have to say that the Melungions I'm familiar with are- for the most part- pretty racist.

Another interesting little clan, some live out Hazard way, are called the blue people, ever heard of them? Their shin is a translucent blue for some genetic reason.

Hard life lessons. LOL
I'll have to put in my nurse outfit and go make a house call to poor Imposter. Hope I take the right thermometer-- always get those two mixed-up

I want to hear more about the Melungeon clan too. Interesting indeed!
If litigious isn't in that dictionary, we need to get you a new one and then sue the dictionary company. They should be aware that we really do live in a litigious society--
