correctness is a disease. You can take an aspirin to help with the
headaches but it is like a virus or cancer. It is everywhere. This
story that I am about to tell shows that you can never escape from
it no matter how remote the location.
springs and Snake Run are two neighboring places in rural Greenbrier
a County. Neither place has more than 30 residents. My Mom's family
has lived in that area for more than 5 or 6 generations. Mom lived
there the last 30 or so years of her life and my daughter, son in
law and grandson live there now.
Mom was in the
Humana hospital in Fairlea where the state fair is located . Mom
moved from a double room to a single room but in the process the
orderly was a little heavy handed. Mom told him" I will have you
know I am from Blue Sulphur not Snake Run. I need to be treated
better.". I told that story at a historical society meeting in
Lewisburg and the crowd seemed to think it was pretty funny.
Well I was
feeling pretty good about myself as I departed for Charleston. I
stopped in at the Go Mart on 219 in Lewisburg and saw someone I knew
and said, " haven't seen you in a while. Weren't you just in the
historical site meeting in Lewisburg?" He got a very stern look and
pointed his finger at me and said," My mother was from Snake Run.".
I can tell you for certain that there are no holes at that Go Mart
that are big enough to hide in".
