#61

Wales? :rofl:


#62

Well I was born in a cross-fire hurricane.


#63

Were you raised by a toothless, bearded hag?


#64

and I was born on a Bayou … literally …


#65

Well. it’s alright now, in fact it’s a gas.

@dave_dore Do you remember the 4th of July?


#66

Not sure what you refer too, I’m sorry …:blush: Oh the rest of the lyric from CCR :open_mouth: lol yea I remeber now!


#67

Yes


#68

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.


#69

Cool. I’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

@dave_dore

My son’s Father-in-Law is a recluse β€œmountain man”, 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 don’t know why but i haven’t shared it with many here till now … 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 β€œcountry” 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!

Dave

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


#74

I was born a poor black child.

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