A few Permies have expressed an interest in the tradition of story telling I grew up with in the southern Appalachian mountains. For me, telling stories and playing music is a big part of independent, more self reliant living. People spend a lot on entertainment. I've spent plenty on old instruments and books... but stories are free! I'm out of practice, and it is a little rough, but I hope y'all enjoy it:

Maybe sometime - I hope to put a new band together this summer.... a little old time, a little blues, country and jazz.  If it isn't appropriate to post here, I'll PM you if I do a video.

One day a fella knocked at an old farmer's door... and when the farmer opened the door, before he could even say hello, that man showed him a laminated card and said, "I am a government official here to inspect your farm. I can go anywhere and inspect anything and you can't stop me." The farmer answered, "Well, go 'head on." and slammed the door in his face. About 30 minutes later, the farmer hears the man screaming, "Help! Help". He looks out and sees his bull chasing that fella around the pasture. So, he ambles out there to watch the show. the man yells, "In the name of the United States Government, I order you to HELP me!" The farmer answered, "Just show him that little card you got there that tells all your authority!"

permaculture is a more symbiotic relationship with nature so I can be even lazier. Read tiny ad:
