4 September 9, 2009 Your Hometown Newspaper Bath County News-Outlook The mornings have always been my fa- vorite time of the day. Even when I was a young boy coming here to live with my grand- parents, no other part of the day was better than when I would roll out of bed and join my grandpa and dad out in the fields. Grandpa was always the first one up in the house and would already be out- side at the chicken coop rounding up fresh eggs for breakfast. The sun wouldn't even be break- ing over the hillside before grandma began cooking. It was that wonder- ful aroma that would wake me. All the smells blending together in the air, but you could always tell what was on that stove top. When my grandparents had lived here by them- selves, before grandpas' heart attack, I'm sure they still ate a lot in the mornings...grandma always preached that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. Hickory smoked bacon, sausage patties, fried taters, eggs any- way you could possibly want them. You would never go hungry, that's for sure? Finally the sun would begin peaking its soft The Smokers Lounge By James Smith orange glow upon our home just about the time we would all sit down at the table, and after cooking so much for so many I was al- ways surprised that grandma actually had the strength to eat. Ev- ery time mom would offer to help, grandma just wouldn't have it. She would say that she had been doing the same thing all her life and was still capable now as she was back then. She was a very proud woman, a little stubborn at times, but she always meant well and I know that it gave her a sense of achieve- ment as well as happi- ness and appreciation. We would all stuff our bellies full and then compliment her on just how down-right deli- cious it was. Through the years morn asked to help more and more, and af- ter grandmas arthritis became almost unbear- able for her, she began to let morn help out. Like I said, she was a proud and stubborn lady, but even the best know when it's time to To Contact the Newspaper Office call 85%28%6125 or email at melissa~thecarlislemercury.com PUBLIC NOTICE The Bath Fiscal Court will hold a public hearing on September 16, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. At the Bath County Ambulance Service for the purpose of obtaining comments from the public regarding the proposed tax rate.

Time kept up its wicked little game, and eventually morn was the one up before the sun cooking for us after we lost grandma in the winter of eighty- six. Funny how good things go away, but the memory of them never does. After a good, hearty breakfast, and my dad and grandpas first smokes of the day, it was time to go to work. My little brother would never go out with us into the fields or the barns unless he was made. Farm life just never was for Jimmy, but for me it was Shan- gri-La in disguise. Jim- my would just become annoying and bother- some so much that dad would have to send him back up to the house, but not before spend- ing a little time in the woodshed for a little butt blistering? Me, I loved it...every- thing about it just in- trigued me. From the crops to the livestock, harvesting to feeding. It's not easy at all. It's a full days job from sun up to sun down, nothing ily of ducks made their but pure hard manual home right here on this labor! But it's honest land. I would mostly labor, money made the watch and learn until I right way. grew up and began do- Grandpa and dad ing it all the same as I wouldn't let me do too much at such a young age, but there was a lot I did get to do. Mostly it was feeding, which was just fine with me because of my love for the animals. Chickens, pigs, cows...even a fam- do to this very day. A farmer's income comes from two dif- ferent places, his live- stock and his crops. My grandfather barely ever sold any of his animals and never really had to because of the endless rows of corn, beans and other vegetables. Then, one night in the early fall of eighty-nine, a ter- rible frost came down from the north while we slept and destroyed almost every crop in the fields. We were all dev- astated and terrified at the same time. The bank payment was already late and now there was nothing to sell. To be continued...
