The Appalachian Mountains from way up in the sky

It’s funny that you’re joking about isolation. Alot of my family used to live right on the edge of the grid and some just a little beyond. It was in the tri-state area…Virginia, Kentucky and Tennessee. They had electricity but were on their own for everything else.

What’s funny about the isolation is that sometimes old timers would come down out of the mountains, walking, with pigs, hogs and sometimes chickens in tow to trade/barter with.

What’s REALLY funny is back then, a lot of those guys didn’t even speak English. They spoke “Appalachian”.

I remember meeting one guy who came down out of the mountains…(I thought I was about as far up as one could go but I was wrong), and he said something like, “Bing tang, bitten ar bitta titten bom, bar ber.” Totally sounded like gibberish.

I looked at my 7 year old cousin and shrugged. She said that he had some corn liquor to trade for sugar. You know what happened next.
