Artist's Description

Open the gate and walk through the old corn crib. Let you imagination take you back a couple of centuries, to a time without cell phones. They didn’t have any phones, TV, radios, electricity or inside toilets. They had luxuries like the old wagon out back. They had family and friends that helped out. Their kids grew up leaning how to “make do” instead of playing video games. At supper time they all ate together. School shootings were contest of marksmanship not killings. They had worries but not like we do. If the stock market crashed, it meant the roof fell in on the barn in town. The kids still worried about their shoes, not if they were a popular brand, but if they would have a pair come winter. When your daughter went out on a date, it meant some boy sat by her in church. They lived a rough hard life, but is ours really all that better……..image taken at the Tipton Place in Cades Cove, GSMNP
