    Modeerhunter....

    Wish I could but the deer and turkey on my land never listen to me, they just tolerate me.... ;-)
    When I think of Mt. Sterling I always remember Schaeperkotter's Store. It was 20 years ago or thereabouts when I went there to get some kerosene. Walking in the door was like stepping back in time.....back to the early 1900's.

    Yes I remember the wooden floors..... and the layout inside that was like an old General Store. And my kerosene was delivered through a hand pump that looked like it had been there for many decades.

    Do you remember the old general store in Bay? I used to go there with my grandfather and we'd buy ice cream sandwiches and dynamite. :eek::

    If it hasn't changed for generations then somebody must be doing something right, at least in my opinion.

    Consider......

    The Scottish say “The father buys, the son builds, the grandchild sells, and his son begs.â€

    Ha ha....what a combo....ice cream sandwiches and dynamite.... ;-) Safer though.....than, say......whiskey and dynamite.

    I've never been in that store.....wish I had. Somewhere in my archives I have an old poem written by a woman, can't remember her name, about the town of Bay. My memory is a little foggy here but I think she wrote in in the 1920's or 30's maybe.

    Well, that store is no longer there, not sure what happened to it, but I remember it very well as a kid. The ice cream sandwiches were good, and the rocks raining down on the awning of the house from the blasting was fun too. :D

    Yeah, the building is still there. It's about the same age as my house, maybe a little older.

    I found the poem I was thinking about online and here's the link to a page which includes the poem along with some historical info about Bay and Little Bay. The name of the woman who wrote the poem is Johanna Stoehr Gumper. August Gumper (along with Elmer Waldecker) was the manager of the General Store in Bay from the 1930s to the 1970s according to the information on this page. So Johanna was probably the wife of August Gumper, though it's also possible that August was her father in law.

    That's some great history that I thank you for. While I remember quite a bit of it, to see it in writing is something special. :cheers:
