..but worth repeating. This forum and others has pretty much replaced gathering around the old pot bellied stove at the feed/general store in every rural area in the country where every topic in the world was discussed. It was generally centered around country things and country life but there was a lot of gossip, chain yankin and leg pulling.
There was also disagreement's, hurt feelings and sometimes downright mean things said. I remember my grampa not going to town for weeks after some new comer sat on his stool at the local watering hole and wouldn't move. These things were soon forgotten and life moved on. Don't hear much about potluck suppers, quilting bees, barn raising's etc. anymore. People are just too darned busy.
Sorry, just ramblin
