As a certified country curmudgeon, it's been said that I have an opinion on everything and a story for every occasion. Other folks just say that I'm a windbag. I, on the other hand, consider myself a purveyor of nostalgia, humor and social commentary from the country perspective. I also occasionally link to posts dealing with current events, politics, religion, prepping, history and homesteading.

I’ve got a book on wild plants that I’ve had for 43 years now. It’s not
the greatest, but it’s all I’ve got. It’s been on many a trip to the mountains
and quite a few outings for camping, fishing or hunting when I was a young man.
I still use it occasionally, when something rouses my curiosity. I decided
years ago that a plant which grows commonly in my area was heal-all, and have
told others that was its name.
