10/30/2012 A cold autumn afternoon….

Mingus Mill, North Carolina….. a cold autumn afternoon. The snow was just beginning to fall and we hurried up our walking trip. The history said that the millwright would keep a portion of the finished product for his pay. The afternoon we visited there were three “ole” men just sitting and rocking. They said that the mill still functions but I think there was more rockin’ than grindin’ going on.
