Trick or Truth? Part Two

As I was driving to Athens this past weekend to see the DAWGS and Vols play, I could not help but notice several families decorating for Halloween.  Decorating is a great family activity for all generations (especially if you are Clark Griswald).  I saw what looked to be a grandmother and grandson putting fake cob webs around a tree.  Their faces were lit with joy and happiness.  On my way home I stopped at the store near my house and I noticed the aisles filled with costumes and candy (Reminder, John: buy candy or will be in trouble with neighborhood kids).  Handing out candy to my neighbors children on Maxwell Ave is always a joy.   Nothing tells us its fall like Halloween.  Leaves turning orange and the nights getting cooler.  Continuing my story from last week……

The Winn’s had built a wonderful home where Winnwood Retirement Community is today and they were enjoying spending time together.  William Winn was busy working for the railroad and Catherine, his wife, was busy taking care of their new home and children.  A true couple in love. Mr. Winn, being a conductor, would stop his train every night while coming through Marietta to pick up dinner from his lovely wife.  Catherine would make her husband good vittles, grab a lantern and head through the woods to meet her husband on the tracks near the Marietta Square. Tune in next week for Part Three……
