What a wonderful, lovely story! Makes my heart happy. They’re probably associated with Brown Grier road too. And that Dixie neighborhood? I believe that’s where the old Byrum’s General Store was. My grandparents lived in Steele Creek. My grandmother took me to Byrum’s once to buy seeds for the massive garden. I saw a pack for Morning Glory vines, which I spent many hours removing from said garden. I couldn’t believe that someone bought them ON PURPOSE! Love your stories!

I adore the story. So many times I have wanted to write down and publish conversations just like this.

This one was all luck! I talked to maybe 10 or 15 people at the overlook that day and I met them at the end.

Yes, when you get a little less intentional about your reporting, once you’ve covered the bases you think you need to cover, then sometimes better and brighter stories bloom right in front you.
