Appalachian Phrase of the Day

This quote describe mky small spot of life, to a "T". Even with the political upheaval, a possible recession looming on the horizon, and much despair on the news each day, life presses on here. Biscuits are still baked each morning at the local gas station/farmer's hangout each day. Crops are being harvested and a nice thunderstorm popped up this afternoon giving us some much needed rain and a break from the heat. School is in session and all matter of family folk help with the children.
We are but a tiny map dot pressing on each day.
"Human nature cannot be studied in a city except at a disadvantage ~ a village is the place. There you can know your man inside and out ~ in a city you know but his crust; and his crust is usually a lie."
