    All of my closest relatives were deep-rooted Kentuckians. Can you did this video?

    A bit of Hillbilly humor. Funny stuff, to me. How about you'ins?
    Boy, the old days were even more ornery than we are today.

    And a young and plain-looking Dolly shows up, too.

    Oh for the good old days when country gals had gobs of hair and a time when Dolly still had that small hole.
    * Well, I tampered with that vid, so now here it is again.

    Great lineage. A very tough woodsman he was.

    Boone founded his own town, located S.E. of Lexington, called Boonesboro.
    All my relatives, and on both sides, mother & father were each born and raised within 20 miles of Hopkinsville, Ky., almost being the complete opposite side of Kentucky, [ West ] where Boonesboro lies.

    The Kentucky long rifle and the men that used it had a great deal to do with American winning Independence.

    There is just something about Kentucky. It seems more special to me than 90% of all the interior states.
    My relatives came to western ky. back in the early 1800s, originally from Ireland. Mother's side. Dad, it seems, had a Scotch-Irish name so I am leaning to his original ancestry's homeland being Scotland?
    A time in Kentucky when they possessed clean rivers and lakes and nearly untouched mountains and streams.

    All of my Kentucky relatives were rural farmers and not anywhere close to a town or city. The days where your source of water came from natural springs or your own dugout wells. And sure, and outhouses, too. Well, except my mother's dad, my grandad, he never had any use [evidently] for any outhouse, though, his mother up the hill had a 2-seater.
    Naw, Grandad had these huge woods behind his house and that's where he would disappear at times.
    Mysteriously, we never knew what he was doing deep in those woods and we never asked either.

    He was the MAN in those days, the standout of all his brothers and sisters and not someone you would want to approch and say, "what did you say?"
    You would be on the ground in a matter of seconds.

    He looked a lot like John Wayne's sidekick, the actor, Ward Bond. The face and body frames were quite similar.
    The days where you would observe many different different characters and standout personalities.
    And there was normally a card game or checker game on the menu.

    The most valued modern device: A radio to listen to the Cardinds and Kentucky Wildcats.
