I believe the place where a person grew up says a lot about them. Well . . . I grew up in Cornelia. A small town located in the northeast corner of Georgia; the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

103 Soque {so-ku-wee; Cherokee} Street {the house in this photo} sits at the foot of a hill and marks the gateway to my childhood village. This is the house where I spent most of my childhood days.

"Mama, I'm goin' down to The House!" I could shout out to her on my way out the door. It was ok, because "down to the house" was where she grew up and the home of her parents, my grandparents; Elvira Small "Mama Elvie" {this is her old bed frame} & John Gibson "Daddy John".

Right across the street from 103 Soque Street was the most active place in the village; Sally's Lunchroom; "The Café". The Café had everything from hot meals to a jukebox with all the latest hits! And this is where I just happened to be {at age 9}, one afternoon, alone with Miss Sally {a rare occasion} when James Brown stopped by {on his way to do a concert} to give her a hug.
