Kevin Ansbro Great work, George.
Perhaps you should write a piece about your coal mining experience back in 1957? Great that you have mostly happy memories.

George A very pleasant fantasy, Kevin. If I ever did, though, I'd have to call it Five Rooms and Path. That was the first and only time I ever lived without indoor plumbing. Ten people, five rooms, a coal-burning fireplace, a water pump on the back porch, and one outhouse. It was an experience to remember. And to treasure.

I don't remember much about coal mining, though. I think most of the mines were already played out by then. There may have been a bit a strip-mining going on, back of Lily.

Can't believe that was sixty, brief, years ago. Back in 'ancient' times.
