Here is an email that I sent to a friend of mine in NC.

Dear Missy,

How are you? I heard a rumor that your new house flooded. I'm sorry to hear it. Everything is fine here. The girls are well. Gwennie started school and we've already had a teacher's conference because she is a troublemaker. Emma is a little angel as always. Sings like a bird all the time. Jethro is ok. He just finished his hardest trimester, so we are over the worst of it as far as schooling goes. Now if he can just pass all of his boards. But you know Jethro. You never know how things are gonna go for him. Anyway, just dropping you a line to see how you are doing. Let me know.


"Zelda" (I used my real name)

I got this reply.

Dear "Zelda,"

Who the hell is Jethro?



"Jethro" no longer seeming like an alias. I wonder if that is good or bad. I always did kind of like that name.

I'm still not quite up to snuff. I'm just sweating out the worst of it right now. I hope I start feeling much better tomorrow, but somehow, I think this is going to require a trip to the doctor and a shot of something or other.

Who the hell is Jethro?lol!

I hope you get better without a shot of something; though I've found a shot of the "medicine" men give verrrrry helpful when you're sick.....

LMFAO! I had that problem for a wee bit but now most everyone knows me as Seeker so its all good. Just tell anyone that asks....

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?.
