This is a good story. He's right about moonshine burning with an almost invisible flame, too.

My grandfather never used his moonshine to run a tractor. (He plowed with a mule in his farming days.) Papaw made his 'shine strictly for medicinal purposes--- such as treating colds, easing muscle aches, warding off chills or pitching a good, therapudic, hillbilly drunk until you passed out curing insomnia. It worked on just about anything.

The good stuff still does, too.


That IS a good story!

Damn, here I am living in the heart of moonshine country and can't seem to score any. A friend of ours told of hauling a back seat full of the stuff through Hillsville recently and did she drop any off at Villa Macbean, NO!
