Travel, Forbus General Store: Clerk & Author Kay Conatser|
2013-12-22 - 3902 N York Hwy, Pall Mall, TN - Photo by Ed Waggener.
Fifteen minutes before this photo was taken I knew there was something very special about the woman on the left (and 48 years before the photo on the right was taken, I knew the woman on the right was the most special in the world). When I had entered the store, Kay Wood Conatser, the head clerk of the day at the Forbus Store, had made me feel as welcome as I'd ever felt. "Take any pictures you want to take," she said, and later caringly scolded me for still wanting to buy some of the sugar filled homemade fudge they had after I told here I was diabetic. When this picture was taken, we were buying the hot-selling book she, Kay Wood Conatser wrote, "Billy Dean Anderson, A Criminal Life." She's already sold 2,000 copies of the book, at the store. Linda is looking at the signed copy of the copyright 2013 book we bought. The inscription was "Kay Conatser, Ecc 3:1-8" the verses popularly called "A Time for Everything." Adair Countians can easily recognize the photo in the center, the stars of Backyard Oil - Rascal Haskell, Jimmy Reliford, Brent Yates, and Travis Coomer, as popular at the store as in Adair County. The jar above the photo is "Tips for the Cook" - a quite wonderful idea, too.
