This photo looks west from our yard. Just looking at this view, you'd think we lived in the middle of nowhere without another house in sight.
But actually, we have neighbors near at hand. Willis and Kathryn, their eight children, and Willis's unmarried sister live just to the right of this photo, about 1/4 mile from us, and Clarence and Elsie live nearer than that to the southeast. Within a mile as the crow flies, there are ten families or more and even the very small village of Honey Grove.
This country seems thickly populated to me, compared to the ranch country of Nebraska where I grew up. But Willis says that compared to Pennsylvania where he used to live, Kentucky seems like the wide open spaces.
