Remembers trek on Greyhound all the way to Campbellsville

Billy Joe Fudge writes:
Sometime around 1959 my paternal grandma, Emma Fudge, and I loaded on the bus in Columbia and rode all the way to Campbellsville. We went over to visit my Aunt Eula Jessie, her husband Uncle Tite (Titus), and my two cousins Keeteth Howard and Kimble Parker. Aren't double names a pure joy?

I remember every inch of the old road up to crossing the steel bridge and somehow I must have blacked out from there to the railroad tracks. The railroad tracks brought me to my senses, because I knew we had to get off the bus at the first street on the left across the tracks.

I remember jumping off that bus and getting our luggage and ourselves across Hwy 55 as the bus pulled away. The 300 yard walk up the street to their house seemed like a mile. I can remember it like it was yesterday. My, my, how time flies when you're having fun. -Billy Joe Fudge
