Grinder’s Switch

“As I grow older the place is no longer a little, abandoned loading switch on a railroad in Hickman County. Grinder’s Switch is a state of mind — a place where there is no illness, no war, no unhappiness — where all you worry about is what you’re going to wear to the church social, and if your feller is going to kiss you in the moonlight on the way home. I wish all of you a Grinder’s Switch”– Minnie Pearl
