no room for hipsters

the occupation of Ashley and Levon

[ from a. addair who is listening to Yo-Yo Ma, Mark O’Connor, and Edgar Meyer (Appalachian Journey) ]

Now that we’ve decided to make our home back in good ol’ East Tennessee we’ve often been asked “Well, have you learned your lesson?”   We get this mostly from fearful grandmothers but there are a few bona-fide haters in there too.

Don’t get me wrong, one of my favorite things about coming home is encountering the fine Southern tradition of knocking high-falutin city kids off their high horses but I can’t help but to want to string the bacon on the table around the person-asking-this-question’s neck.

No, we didn’t learn our lesson.  But yes, we did learn many lessons.

Tantrums aside,  it is a real pleasure being back in Old North Knoxville.
