Jackson’s Favorites, July 2016 through December 2018

You can find these by going to the black Search box under a big picture on the entry page to Life on the Blue Highways.  There is a light gray Search box; ignore it.  Go to the white box next to the black Search box.  In the white section thereof, key in the name or a few key words of the blog you want to access.  Voila!

    1. If pressed, I would suggest Afterlife of a Small Town (decline of middle America), Crater Lake (best photography), Education & Football (self-explanatory), Dead Poets (my best teacher), D.C. 1993 (wrote this back then), Rollin’ Coal (environment and pop culture), Evening in New Orleans (I wanna be Scott Fitz) and Bugger (pets).

      Thank you for reading and commenting Kahuna. And I like all the posts mentioned in Jax Favoritos. But these are my favorite eight children from that time period.
