Brought Up on Tales
Bill Crider said the other day that he was brought up on tales of the Alamo. Were you brought up on tales? Was there a lot of oral story telling in your home? There was almost none in mine. My parents were not story tellers--even their own stories.
I wonder if story-telling is a Southern thing. Or a ethnic thing. Or a family thing.
My German-Scots-Irish, Pennsylvania background elicited very few stories.
If your family were story tellers, what kind of story did they tell? Family ones? Ones about the area you lived in? Historical stories? I am envious. Tell me your story.
