Re: “Getting Lost

Whites was not gobbled up by a national chain. It was in fact bought by a man who was born and raised in Vesuvius. Born in the same house as his mother in Vesuvius, in fact. From what I understand, the Whites were good people. However, they had both been dead for 10 years by the time the place was sold. I grew up in Vesuvius as well, I am the son of that man. My family has been there for over a 100 years, and I'm probably related to 40% of the people that live there. I like Jeff Fowler consider it the golden age of my childhood. Riding my bike to the store, Clarence and Irene working between it and the Post Office. Walk out the front door of the store and I can see my Granny sitting on the front porch just on the other side of the railroad tracks. Pap Pap has his walker draped over the front of his riding lawn mower, and the trailer attached. He is picking up Walnuts behind Austin's old store. Well I've got to go, the church bells are ringing and that means dinner is probably ready. That, well atleast it was... Vesuvius.
