Kickin' back, musing, observing, and gathering inspiration from the hills of East Tennessee.

Where we live we don't have "next door" neighbors because we are back in the sticks and secluded. But we have neighbors down the road, and new ones. We met them the other day. They bought the old house at the corner of our road and another. It'll need a lot of repair/renovation, but the man had his own home renovation company so they should be able to do okay. When they arrived at their new home, they discovered that someone had removed all of the copper wire and copper pipes from their house! So my husband gave them some electrical wire so they could at least have one or two outlets. They returned to where they now live - Florida - but are going to come back up here over Thanksgiving.
Rabbits cookin' coffee -- that's what the locals call it. But here in this little hollow in East Tennessee, when the hills surrender their misty hostage to reveal the stalwart cedars growing by the stream in our pasture, I know there is no place on earth I would rather be. The welcome mat is out! Come and sit on the porch and chat with me awhile!
