Default Hello! New here from Shelby county TN!

Hello everyone! So much here I love. I raise chickens, garden and am learning to can. I'm a retired mom of 6, homeschooling them for 12 years and now they are all grown and busy. I love camping, kayaking and hubby and I ride scooters for wind therapy. I'm also an active American Red Cross Volunteer.

Welcome.

I was stationed in Millington for 13 months way back in 1970/71.
Nice area at the time.

Welcome! I'm somewhat familiar with Shelby County.

Back in my more rambunctious days I once visited the Shelby county Sheriff office. Because of my excess velocity on the interstate they "allowed" me to make a cash contribution to the county coffers. They also offered to provide accommodations should I desire to await a date with the judge. I chose to pay the cash.

Been there but it was in California.

There was no one on the street in that little town but what's a sailor to do.
Pay now or wait in jail for the judge on Monday. That was a Friday.
Pay up and get the hell out of town.

I did Red Cross disaster relief work in Lincoln county this past spring after they had an EF-3 tornado. It's gorgeous country and the local people are wonderful! The Prichards distillary there is owned by some friends of ours. They offer a nice free tour with tastings, lol. I actually live just outside of Millington. The Naval base is only a couple of miles away. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Looking forward to learning new things from you all.

Default Hello from West Virginia

Sounds like we have much in common. Aside from raising chickens and gardens, and doing the outdoor things, I have been a Red Cross Instructor for quite a few years now. I don't have children, but when my sister came to live with us many years ago, with her two small children, we did homeschooling, and we all loved it!! When they went back to public school, both children were top of their class. I think it's great when a parent want's to take the time to home school. It takes a lot of self-discipline and time, but I believe it is so much more beneficial to your children!
