My Father's Father



It has been a slow posting week at lgc, so I thought I would share a cool pick of my grandfather. In the picture he's holding the gun with his right hand, not just because he was right handed, but because he didnt have a left hand, or arm. He lost his left arm in the coal mines when he was 14 years old. My other grandfather, who also worked the coal mines in the same hills, said everyone recognized my one armed grandfather as simply the meanest man that ever walked the hills of Perry County Ky.

Talk amongst yourselfs...
