I can't believe it's almost 2009! I've lived in Kentucky now for 35 years. I bought land in 1973 from a want ad in Mother Earth News magazine. It was right across the Taylor County line on Tallow Creek Road.
I lived there in a little A-frame house in the woods for several years.
I had been working in Champaign, Ill., at the university for a long time and really wanted to move to the country.
Boy, did I get the country!
We didn't have running water at first and an outhouse was a short walk from the back door.
