Jon Halsey: Had hoped for a Black Gnat address

' . . . I truly appreciate the colorful, descriptive names in Adair and surrounding counties. - JON HALSEY

And a lovely name it is! Years ago I looked at a map to see where in Kentucky my company was moving me and was enthralled to see that I would be close enough to Black Gnat that I might actually end up having that as my address. Having had Frog Jump TN as a former address (Gibson County in the Western third of the State) I pined for another colorful address. Alas, it was not to be but I truly appreciate the colorful, descriptive names in Adair and surrounding counties. - Jon Halsey
