Where are you from? ๐Ÿ˜†


Wales? :rofl:


Well I was born in a cross-fire hurricane.


Were you raised by a toothless, bearded hag?


and I was born on a Bayou โ€ฆ literally โ€ฆ


Well. itโ€™s alright now, in fact itโ€™s a gas.

@dave_dore Do you remember the 4th of July?


Not sure what you refer too, Iโ€™m sorry โ€ฆ:blush: Oh the rest of the lyric from CCR :open_mouth: lol yea I remeber now!




Well my birthplace was New Iberia, Louisiana in a hospital that was literally right on the banks of the Bayou Teche. I have lived a lot of places in North America but have settled in Jasper Arkansas area of the Boston Mountains.


Cool. Iโ€™ve been to New Iberia several times. My brother lived in that area for awhile, many years ago.
I stopped in Jasper last week. Visited my son in Fayetteville. So you are in Jasper now?


In the woods about 7 or 8 miles from there



My sonโ€™s Father-in-Law is a recluse โ€œmountain manโ€, way out in the sticks, on a rocky dirt road somewhere between Huntsville and Kingston. We visited him, and I later drove to Jasper to catch Hwy 7 to I-40, then home. Used to ride 7 and the pig trail on my Harley a couple of times a year. Beautiful drive.
My son is part of the architect team that designed The Amp in Rogers, so I usually get to catch a concert when I visit (sometimes VIP). We drove to Tulsa last Tuesday to catch Tool at the BOK Center.
I had no idea you were in Arkansas.


Hey Corky and Everyone,

I donโ€™t know why but i havenโ€™t shared it with many here till now โ€ฆ I was reared and educated in metropolitan surroundings in the U.S. and Canada but went to this same rural location over 30 years ago. I became a โ€œcountryโ€ liver who grew his food, and gathered his wood for heat. So you pass right by my valley when you go up the big Round Top mountain section of Hwy 7 just south of Jasper. I too have a longish dirt road to my home which is in a beautiful spot so I am blessed in that respect.

Thanks for the great thread @So_Godly!



Wish I had known. Would have loved to meet you. Yes, this is a great thread, even though I hijacked it again.


I was born a poor black child.

Are we allowed to do that joke any more? Probably not :smiley:



In a crossfire hurricane. lol
At least your opti-grab business did well.


Come-on guys, donโ€™t loose it :smiley:


Oh, I done loosed it


I can confirmโ€ฆFred done loosed it. Then I done loosed it, but canโ€™t seem to find it. Hopefully, Fred will find it, and tell me where it is.


:joy: dohhhhT
