Kenneth Giles: Hallie's Store, Knifley, KY, was his Mom's favorite
Recollections of Hallie Chelf Knifley, Leon Christie, John Dunbar, and Travis Corbin and more sweet memories of a time past - but whose spirits still thrive that most resilient of American communities - Knifley, KY
Comments re article 65600 Old Knifley Bob Spires remembers watermelon by the slice
By Kenneth Giles
I also remember our going to Knifley to do our shopping.
Hallie's was Mom's favorite store.
We would walk to Knifley - through the woods. Or, maybe we could get a ride and buy a bunch of groceries.
Also, we purchased feed from Leon Christie to feed the cows. There were even flowered sacks for the cow feed and it was used to make things. She would try to get sacks that were of the same print.
It is interesting to remember how self-sufficient we all were in those days. I can't remember the name of the store close to Hallie's where we would go for a slice of bologna or cheese with crackers for our lunch.
Also, we would sometimes go to Leon Christie's for the same food.
I went the first year of high school to Knifley High. I remember the principal's name was John; he insisted we call him John rather than Mr Dunbar. I think his last name was Dunbar.
I spent the rest of high school at Clark County High.
Thanks for bringing back those memories. By the way, Travis Corbin would also share the visit to Leon Christie's store for lunch. - Kenneth Giles
