I'm just back from a visit with my aunt and uncle in my Southern Ohio, Appalachian birthplace: Portsmouth.
Going home means stories of my relatives from at least one hundred years back.
My grandfather was a mean drunk father of 9 who worked in a steel mill all of his life and beat his wife.
How ironic he was called 'Chick.'

How to cheer up!

Good advice from my baby!
