wELL..

I mean "nEver" unless I caught you in a trap or something, and I only do that with friends.

My Grandfather, or my "Paw" as we called him, was especially fond of old time music like that.

He taught me everything I know about the mountains, woods, trees and such. Everything. We used to spend a lot of time together. He was born in 1911 and worked in the CC during the Depression.

He died cutting some trees at my Uncles place. They found him in his truck and he'd stopped to take a break to have some "sody" crackers and tea.

Anyway. He liked that kind of music.

Yeah, she'd love it.

The good parts of that way of life have almost vanished, but it's still here and there.

When I was 16 years old, the county I grew up in had a total population of 10,000 people, and 3,000 lived in the city limits. Our closest neighbors still plowed with mules. We kept goats and that's where our milk was from.

Good times.

I bet you miss him. I miss mine too and that I wasn't with him when he died. When they led me out I looked at him and he was smiling.

... clearly anyone knows why taking the high road would be considered a positive. When the post to you repeated your statement in question form: "Why bother?" ..as if you were saying you saw no value in doing it I shook my head. Most people obviously have a limit on what they will take before responding in kind.
You're rationalizing for Rider. Here are his words again:

"I wanted to point that out because when people here take that road it is very rarely acknowledged, and I know thats why its not taken nearly enough. When people dont take notice, in my own case anyway, its like why bother... "

It's clear what he meant.

Like I said, his words speak for themselves. Why do you feel the need to try to come in and sugar coat them? His honest admission is the beginning of self-understanding and self-improvement, but only if his errors are recognized for what they are and dealt with as such, however painful. You do him no favors with comments like, "Most people obviously have a limit on what they will take before responding in kind." You're justifying his mistakes. Let him see and confront them.

I don't know much about shine but I did grow up in Korea and China. There are some "hills" there. The Appalachian chain runs through the state I live in. I've hiked from Maine to Jersey. I know a little about hills but not much about hill folk. I would like to learn :)

I miss him a whole bunch. Whenever I'm out cutting or walking in the hills, and lots of things, he's always right there with me.

hahaa...

Every so often when I'm out cutting, I'll hear ...

"You best clear you a path cause that's a biggun, case you need tuh run from it, ye don't wanna be trippin over at creepin ivy n' saw briar and all. Never fergit, that tree wants to kill you, and it it can"

Or something like that.

It varies, depending on what's going on.

I could tell you miss yours from what you wrote. Just keep him close.

Well, sis ther some of the best folk I know. I spent a lot of my time in the NY an Jersey hills. Other folk came in around Paint WV, and some farther south from Boon country. They was all good folks. NEVER took ta store bought stuff much...lived off the land...which was tough. I had a uncle who had a oil well, and wouldn't sell even one barrel of it. That's just how they were. If I was there, we would get up every morn'n at 3 oclock and go on out hunt'n squirrels, rabbits, or deer for meat...every day. Gas bags hang'n offa pipes for lite in the house, and wood and coal for the stoves....all came right off the land. It was a good life. Biggest entertainment was the "train station"... 2 miles down a washed out road to the tracks. They had a "penny candy counter". The kids all sold some hides ta buy the candy. That was it. Persimmons, gooseberries, wild strawberries, and blackberries--oh blueberries too. Sugar trees made hard candy in the fall snows.
What more could ya want!

You would do well to recognize that that is a common pattern for you.... It's suboptimal to just keep making the same mistakes again and again, and coming to the same conclusions again and again, while never growing.
Like you do?

You could never do what I just did

You could never admit you were wrong

You could never admit your ego got the best of you

You will lie, deny, equivocate, use semantics, justify, rationalize, and defend any position you ever take no matter how wrong

You have been here almost 9 month. Have you admitted you were wrong about anything? Admitted any culpability? Done anything but make grandiose claims and excuses for why you do what you do?

It's hard to imagine how you thought that. Did she attack you? Did she call you a bad person? No. She answered your question in a constructive, nonjudgmental way. If you got something else from that, that's you. You're as defensive and suspicious as your cohorts:

Trifecta now: "Some writers here posing as atheists may be actual Christians and some Christians here may be atheists. That is how cynical and suspicious I view this billboard."

Skombolis wrote: "People have fakes bring nice because they think its funny to get Chrustuans to trust them but they don't it fot long"

The unbelievers here will help all of you if you can put down your guard for a moment and consider that we might be more than demons. You may be out of Christianity now, but Christianity isn't out of you.

I think it's the hive training that makes you three all so suspicious and defensive of us "ungodly" people, a word used as an insult in that worldview. It is a divisive worldview, one which depicts "the other" as a morally bereft enemy of god and goodness, and probably accounts for why you read into her comment that Happy Lesbo was taking a shot at you. I don't see that at all.

You are rationalizing HL

Anyone could see what he meant. She used a technicality to pretend she didn't know otherwise. She knew she did it or she never would have claimed her post was just a compliment to Epi when it started off questioning Larry why he said "why bother"?

If she really thought he meant it like she presented it, she wouldn't have denied calling him on it. Instead she pretended she didn't because she knew it was a crappy thing to do to someone who had just made some very nice overtures to her

Not only you can't admit to being wrong and neither can some that came here with you, you guys defend each other's wrongdoings.

Your group's people skills are atrocious

Forget the trolling. How about simply the fact you guys can't engage in any exchange with someone even when they are being civil without being condescending and snide?

You guys can't seem to talk to normally to anyone that isn't part of your co-dependent support system

They still call it "white likker" in my region. The people I know do anyway. Not sure why. I do know that when someone talks about "moon shine" here, it clues you that they aren't from the immediate area,

There's all kinds of little things and "speak" that lets you know what you need to know. What seems like a 5 or 6 word mumble to someone else can convey all kinds of information.

You know how it is.*winks*
