Mountain living

Worth reading the post on Fred First's Fragments from Floyd blog about a book signing he did at the Chateau Morrisette winery.
First, for the great photo of the wine-tasting room there, a massive thing and an impressive place to visit.
Second, for the stories he tells about people's reaction to his book and their feelings about living in the mountains.
Fred adapts a T-Shirt slogan someone told him about. It was about another Appalachian county, and he thinks it fits Floyd just fine. I don't know how many versions of this are out there, but I saw it just a few days ago on a plaque by an artist at the Folk School show:
No, I'm not a native of Cherokee County, but I got here fast as I could!
