Unbased Opinion – Jan. 23

Wind. Crows. I watched one take off into the wind and fly backwards a few minutes ago. They’ve been in front of Big House, but soon they’ll go since wind is freshening.

Old Glory on her pole in front of Big House is flapping. Faded, threadbare.

I’ll change her in a while. Big House is brighter now since I had it painted and deserves a bright new flag.

I’ve got one handy. Got several when I bought new flag pole. I get both flags and poles from American Legion emblem sales. New flag pole is cool. Light aluminum and extendable.

    Really enjoy all your unbased opinions and all the history articles on Hardy County . My Maternal grandfather was George H.W. Simon and Maternal grandmother was on the Hinkle side. He was the first Postmaster of Milam,was also a Justice of the Peace in the area. My sisters tell me he also owned a retaurant at one time in Moorefield, Paternal Grandfather lived at the top of mountain on the WV-VA border. My dad taught school at the Mountain Top school jointly owned by both states. He also owned a country store later in Bergton during the 30′s and 40′s. I remember riding with him on the Huckster Rroute up crab run road to Rt. 259 back around to the Bergton Road.. Folks would call in their orders on the old crank wall phones on Monday, and he would deliver on Wednesday. He would takes Eggs and live chickens in trade, than go to Harrisonburg on thursday and sell them. I just subscribed a Month or so back and in the process of reading all the 2011 back issues getting ready to start the 2012 issues. Do fill a little guilty about getting all the free issues, but not enough to send any extra money(joke)
    Thanks.
