Guy Babin relate some things he's learned about Adair County
Incomer relates: Being drawn to Dry Creek. Need to meet Billy Joe Fudge and the COF. A lesson learned Campbellsville for geographical faux pas re: Knife-ly. Epiphany at the Crossroads Store. And a thirst for Culture and Enlightenment BJF could endow, re: ' every tree, shrub, flora and fauna on our piece of paradise in western Adair County.' (Thus may test out on rigorous Adair Assimilation Academy orientation. See below - CM
Comments re article 64913 COF of Knifley welcomes incomers to Cool Springs Creek
By Guy Babin
We appreciate the welcome Mr. COF of the precipice overlookin' the fine community of Knifley. The recommendation on looking up Billy Joe Fudge is appreciated. I'll get back to him in a tic... Two reasons:
Putting every bit of my Louisiana obtained public school education in play; I was already marginally christened into the realm of being "from off".
First is the consumption of the writings of Janice Holt Giles. I wonder if you might not be kin to her husband Henry's clan as your articulations seem to parallel those described.You might be surprised that we know it's pronounced 'niffley vice a sound describing an Old Timer fingernail cleaner. I must confess that tidbit was only learned the hard way after a Gent in the Campbellsville American Legion canteen laughed at me for referring to a knife as I described where we had spent our day.
I really want to meet Billy Joe Fudge--what a great name by the way... I won't rest until I can identify every tree, shrub, flora and fauna on our piece of paradise in western Adair County. He sounds like just the man to help educate this from off'er. (I know, improper usage)
I'm really happy to learn there are so many in the area with a great sense of humor and a gift for writing. Thank you again COF of Knifley!
--Guy Babin Guy & Aline Babin, celebrated Incomers, have an amazing grasp of Adair County ways already, and may have already tested out on Adair County Assimilation requirements, per judgment of the Dean of ACA, Doctor Johnny Vaughn. Our recommendation: The Babins be given the coveted BAACOAACAAAC - Born Again Adair Countian/Once an Adair Countian Always An Adair Countian designation. They mastered the big difference. It's "Niffley" - despite public radio announcers say the blessed name of the Garden Spot of the Universe "Knife-ly" or "Kuh-niffley." It's up to Dr. Johnny, the final say, now - CM
