  19. Hello this issue is really concerning. Keep it going friend !


  20. strangers imiples unfriendly strangers.Friendly people look for you and jam, because then you’ll break out the likker anyway. unfriendly people look for your still on ole’ rocky top.I understand a state song, especially in that state, that glorifies that. There’s a lot of resentment about federal moonshining laws, making crimes out of things that should not be, or should at least be up to states.
