This morning a friend I grew up with shared this article about a well-known character from my hometown. I remember seeing his car around town when I was a little girl, because it was hard to forget: it was covered in animal skulls and bones.
No one batted an eye when the Bone Man drove past. In the deep South, we're used to our eccentrics...they're just part of the landscape. Reading this article took me straight back to my childhood, and I thought some of my international readers might be interested in hearing about a small town witch doctor. Enjoy!
Interesting article. I wonder what Gilchrist's son is doing now.ReplyDelete
My second trip through the artist's artifacts was even better than the first. Excellent article.ReplyDelete
This is a fascinating article; I wonder if his son returned to keep up the practice.ReplyDelete
Fascinating link. Thanks for sharing Osker's story.ReplyDelete
My first impression was 'what an old scoundrel', but I wouldn't have stopped him from practicing his nonsense. People like him make life interesting; each to their own.ReplyDelete
Every town should have a guy like this.ReplyDelete
That is a very interesting story! I appreciate your posting it. Thank you!
I also thank you for visiting my blog. I have appreciated your comments. They have been helpful during my difficult time.
Finally, I wanted to comment also about your watermelon. I have many relatives who love to salt their watermelon as well. I have never liked it that way, but it is indeed a popular method! :)
His place sounds like a complete junkyard! Our place has stuff lying around where it shouldn't, maybe I need to say it is for power or medicine :)ReplyDelete
I'm also very curious about what his son is doing now
Interesting article of the bone man.ReplyDelete
I must try the salt on watermelon, also so I can watch the face my husband makes; I like salt and he always tells me I would put it anywhere, even on my ice-cream, if I could!
