By Mark Hale
The other day I took a cell phone picture of a local legend and
People from all over know Johnny for his abilities to build a fence and tell incredible stories. No other community has what we have in Hardscratch in the one and only "Jonnny B."
Mr. Bledsoe leaves future stuff to whippersnappes
He loves to talk of times past and present but he leaves the future to us whippersnappers.
His wisdom is beyond explainable.
Recently one of the locals was visiting family in Michigan and struck up a conversation with a stranger who said he sounded like he had a Kentucky accent.
Traveler in Michigan found local who only knew one Kentuckian
The lady from Michigan said she knew of only one person from Kentucky, from a little place called "Glens Fork," and that was Johnny Bledsoe.
People from far away know Johnny and his talents as a fence builder.
Hardscratch is proud to know Johnny Bledsoe and we say if you need to know something about anything just ask "Jonnny B."
