Larry’s article appeared in the Macon Telegraph on Sunday, July 3, 2016. Do they still have “fishing ponds” at the carnivals, festivals and fairs where you pay your money, get your pole, drop your line behind a curtain, and some unseen person attaches something (not worth as much money as you paid to “fish”) to...

  My Aunt Lillian Walker Maddox, Daddy’s sister, could just about out-work anyone I ever saw.  Efficient, too.  She could shell butter beans faster than a machine.  And although she lived in Atlanta, she came back to Washington County and helped with the hog killings and the syrup makings.  She could sew and cook.  And...
