By the way I got a little curious and went to happy hollow and the dam today.Saw cars from at least 13 different counties.The most was from davidson with rutherford running a close second the williamson.No out of staters I was supprised at that.But I know at those two places alone there was at least 75 to 100 cars in all and I did not go out there till 3 o'clock.

I drive from La Vergne in Rutherford County.. Usually takes about an hour best I can remember. It has been a while. Last summer I would wade at Happy or just below the dam (not the pond). I've got a new boat that I want to try out but I'm waiting until colder weather sets in before I get back out there.

The tractor deal was way more 20 years ago. I lived at Cove H back in 82-83. Neighbors were Buddy and Grace and Caddilac Wilson.

That Laycock bridge use to scare the heck out of me. Wondered why they were rebuiling it. Back when Thelma had the little cafe in Lancaster, I use to drive over that sucker after a high cholesterol breakfast. I also had permission to put in behind the cabin across from Dick Sampson's store. I always stopped and knocked before sliding the boat down behind the house. One morning, some young lady dressed in a smile and nothing else answered the door. I bruised several knuckles banging on that door after that. Dick and I use to swap knives everytime I stopped in. He was a rare breed they don't make anymore.

Dick was something else he used to call me Herb,never new why..My grandpa and John Sampson,and Dick were all pretty tight.Dick Gave me my first knife,I still have it.As for laycock i heard a story about Redbone Vaden.One time he and my brother in Law were going across it and the bridge was in such bad shape they would have to take a board up from behind them and put it across the hole in front of them to get across.I think I would have turned back.
