Welcome to Columbia Magazine  

Suggests day-trip to Nancy, KY, could be informational

Contact informatiion for 'Anon' on file. Can vouch for this one, and will not reveal name if challenged by Charles Marshburn to arm wrestling duel to settle dispute

From Anon

My child bride of lo! these thirty-five-and-counting years says a lot of energy goes to my brain but that considerably more of it is dissipated in the form of heat than in light. Words like that could hurt a lesser man. lol!!!!!!!

Since Mr. Marshburn has an apparent aversion to googling (it took me all of three minutes to find the reference to verify the origin of the name), I considered concocting a tale about a band of French Huguenots fleeing to the wilds of Pulaski County.................... :)

Most of my father's families - Weddles, Tarters, Goses, Warners, Cains, and others, et al., - settled in the western part of Pulaski County, none of them too far removed from Nancy. (Much of that area was settled by Scots, Scots-Irish, and Germanic peoples.)

A visit to Zollicoffer Park, on the outskirts of Greater Metropolitan Nancy, would make a great day trip for you and your favorite first wife. I haven't been there since some years before the proud old Zolly tree gave up the ghost and the new monument was erected. As a matter of fact, the last time I was in that country was in the early '90s when I made a Saturday dash from Bowling Green over to Faubush to commune with my dearly departed kith and kin. - ANON
