Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Occupy The Cove

Last night some travelers came through Collinsville, unseasonably cold night. They had been on the road for several days coming from Asheville and Durham. One fellow said he was in occupy San Francisco last fall; and had grown up around Roswell Georgia and wanted to go to culinary school. Was familiar with my niece's friends establishment, The West Cobb Diner. Constable Ada came out from town to check out their credentials and could find no fault with them. Late I understood the Ministerial alliance to give them warm shelter for one night. I made a call To The Shed as it turned out, but no harm came of it; and had good fortune this morning to tell a Will Campbell Story. Got me thinking about the Cove by my friend Ron Rash and how it could inflect this real life incident. One of the fellows, since they had experience around Asheville said he was gonna read it when he got settled. I believe him. They weren't around exit 205 when I came through town this morning. Said they were gonna try to get to California and regroup and rest there for a while. I hope they make it. All this on a day started on NPR with a report on Kris Kobach and the Bama Immigration bill, with Gov Bentley and 3rd grade children from Crossville in Montgomery. Almost brought tears to my eyes when I got to thinkin about it all. I sent the WMU an email
