Deering & Myrtle Fletcher grandson: Stopping at OG's a treat
It was a school bus stop for two ridges, for those who rode Mr. Lacy's bus or Peabody Murphy's. OG would break a box of shotgun shells to sell a boy what he could afford.
By James Murrell
As a child spending summers with my grandparents, Deering & Mrytle Fletcher, in the 1960's it was treat to stop at OG's store. this continued on through my early teen years when my brothers and I went to live with them on the banks of Harrods Fork.
Everyday on the bus ride home from school, Mr. Lacy or Mr Peabody Murphy - depending on which ridge you lived on - would stop and let everyone get some candy or snack.
I also remember it as being the gathering place for all the tobacco workers to eat during harvest times.
And just a quick note: OG would always sell me shotgun shells by the shell if I could not afford a whole box. If the limit on Squirrels were 6, then usually that's how many I bought and became a better shot due to that fact. -James Murrell
