Woodward gave visitors of the gourd show free seeds to plant their own gourds.

  • “I have not seen or heard from my son in four weeks. I know he was alive a month ago because he stopped by his grandparent’s house asking for food and money. You see, my son is running from multiple warrants for drug possession. I know that he has guns, and I’m afraid he’ll kill himself or someone else–including me.

There were some huge boulders and many colorful small pieces. I may as well make it clear immediately that I was there by invitation. The property on the knob is all private. You can’t just drive up there because locked gates won’t allow it.
