Node Store reminds writer of her store, at Sulphur Well
Professor Lane's comment takes writer back to memories of "Don't Slam That Door!" - sweet music from her childhood and and reminiscences of tractor and horseback runs to the store for missing ingredients for the next meal
By Linda Waggener
I have to thank Gary Lane so much for sharing memories of the Node community of Metcalfe County, KY!
My Mom also thought Ione Stapp was a wonderful person. While the little Node store was nearest his home, the Sulphur Well store was nearer to the Marcum place.
I remember going to Sulphur Well, a mile away, with the help of whatever vehicle was available to my Mom - horse, car, tractor, etc. - when ingredients had to be shopped for in a rush to finish up the evening meal.
You and I had to go a ways to the store, unlike my husband Ed who only had to run a half a block up Jamestown Street to E. Campbell's store when his mother sent him for ingredients.
I can hear the pressure cookers hissing out steam just remembering the kitchens of those days.
I loved the madness of the kitchens when there were lots of people to feed, three meals a day to prepare, serve, clean up after, prepare, serve, clean up after and again, prepare and clean up after -- all with kids running in and out, hollering to the drum beat of screen doors banging and adults shouting, "don't slam that door!" That's still some of my favorite music in the world. -Linda Marcum Waggener
