Letter: Thanks for sharing the Happy Chandler Road

Letter writes:
Billy Joe Fudge, thank you for sharing that awesome glimpse of your Dad by the side of his Happy Chandler Road in Adair County. Mom and I loved it, remembering when Earl Reid Marcum held a state job in Metcalfe County and hauled his family around in the evenings after supper to campaign for Happy -- it was expected of state workers then to actively campaign as part of the job. It was not required that we sing "Happy Days are Here Again" as we traveled the mostly gravel roads around Sulphur Well, Center, Node and Knob Lick, but sing we did, Dad in an incredible tenor and Mom in her pretty alto, with my brother and me awkwardly chiming in from the back seat. I think Dad got a little yellow rumbling state truck to drive on that job and $200 a month.
--Please keep up the good writing,
Linda Marcum Waggener
