Age: A Paltry Thing

“I’ve forgotten more than you’ll ever know.”

Those are words my grandmother, Hazel Ragland Miles, has said many, many times when a family member, specifically one of her children, would try to correct or challenge her on a factual statement or an event that had taken place some years ago—even if it did involve only them and not her.

Bluegrass On The Hill

The air was crisp—not cold—just cool enough that we needed a sweatshirt before going outside after supper.

We could almost see our breath as warm vapor as we stepped outside onto the grass.

How Buckingham Are You?
Remember how I told you, about three weeks ago, that I took an online quiz that determined how deep my southern roots were, and I only scored 80 percent (which followed a massive influx of sweet tea and The Andy Griffith Show reruns)?

80 Percent Southern

So, I was on Facebook the other day, looking around at what everyone was up to and what my friends were posting, and I came across this quiz that determined how southern one is.

Yep! There’s an online test that will determine how deep your southern roots are—whether they’re as deep as that old oak tree that was blown down by that windstorm a few years ago at Sprouse’s Corner, or as shallow as that stand of pines we see in New Canton every day near Bryant’s Store.
