We made it! We moved!
At church this weekend I told one of our ushers where our new house is. His eyebrows shot up.
“You’re in hillbilly country now!” he exclaimed.
I’m not sure that I know exactly what a hillbilly is. Judging by our neighborhood, keeping old upholstered armchairs on the porch may be an indicator. And perhaps the 8 by 10 foot banner that says COUNTRY BY THE GRACE OF GOD is a clue.
“But maybe you like that?” he added.
I nodded. “Yes!”
“Well,” he said, “some of them are good folks.”
Spring has sprung – it came like a covert operation – a crocus here, a daffodil there, then boom, the hills are covered in green. Now we can go out and meet some of our hillbilly neighbors. What will they think of us?
UPDATE: So the banner mentioned above is really only about 4 feet by six feet. I guess it left a big impression on my mind.
