Kentucky Color: The Noticer

By Billy Joe Fudge

Yes Pen, I do carry "The Noticer" label your Dad, Ed Waggener, put on me several years ago with some self gratification. However, noticing is not about The Noticer but about the noticed. So, I just can't help but wonder about "the hat" in the picture?!

Comments re: Bellview School in the late 40s

Well-seen, as advertised. It took me several minutes to find in the photo. If readers have an idea about the errant head-topper, use our Comment Form to weigh in. --Pen
