Many of you here are aware of my blog St. Vincent Memories
, but I wanted to mention it here for those of you not. It is an ongoing project of mine begun over five years ago and now has nearly 700 posts on a wide-range of subjects all with one thing in common - they are all about St. Vincent and its surrounding communities/neighbors, emphasizing the local history, but also touching on more current news when it seems appropriate. Many individuals and groups have helped me locate information, brought stories to my attention, or helped expand knowledge on topics already discussed. It's been a joy to rediscover my history and share it with many others - expatriates, current residents, or just interested strangers. It's really helped me understand where we came from and why, how very special our area is (I always felt it was, but now I know more about why), etc. It's also been a joy to spotlight local writing talent such as Charles Harris Walker, who I am proud to be able to have called a friend. Chuck had a passion for local history that rivaled my own, and a deep knowledge of not only the general history of our area, but the histories of many of the pioneers, and brought them vividly to life in his books Sheriff Charley Brown
, and Bordertowns
