What Daniel is saying on ...

  • I have a ball cap that says "Tennessee Volunteers" on it. An old man asked me today why Tennessee is called the volunteer state. Well, I don't know, other than Tennesseans volunteer for every fight they can get their hands on. So, I looked it up to learn why. I found out some things I didn't know. The term "Volunteer State" came from the War of 1812, also known as the 2nd War of Independence against the British. It was a nickname Tennessee earned because so many Tennesseans volunteered to fight in that war. I also discovered that Tennessee was the largest contributor of troops to both the Union and to the Confederacy during the Civil War. I also discovered the my home town of Bristol has been nameed "The birthplace of County Music" in 1998 by the US Congress. Those idiots finally did something that I agree with! The name Tennessee is believed to have come from a Cherokee Indian tribe called the Tanase tribe. I grew up in an area of the Blue Ridge Mountains known as the Roan Highlands. One of the highest areas of the Appalachians. I kinds like that. It reminds me of the Irish "Highlanders" of old. A fearlessly independent bunch of farmers who loved the land and their heritage. I still describe East Tennessee this way, "If you ask a farmer for one of his melons, he'll give you the biggest one in the melon patch. Try and steal one of his melons and he'll shoot you dead." Well, that's what I learned today. Blessings!
  • Then there is that late 20s picture of Danny in the 70s. My kids say I look like a preacher. I don't think so.

  • Guess what I found...A picture of "Danny" in boot camp 2 weeks after graduating from High School in 1969.
