This is the song of my people. Grandpa ran ‘shine way back when. It’s how he got into auto repair and racing. NASCAR was founded by ‘shine runners – a competitive bunch, to be sure.
My great-grandparents were doing the same. Then I went and married a family with four generations of pastors. It’s an odd mixture of family histories, to be sure. Astute readers might see these influences in The Churchians…

When I was Rather Young and Grandpa & Neighbor likely figured I wasn’t paying attention or wasn’t aware, neighbor spoke of bootlegging during Prohibition. I did know at least some chemistry by then, so it was a bit of shock that they colored the product with Paris green, so as to make it seem “not booze” somehow. I don’t know how much if any filtering further distillation, or other purification might have taken place after delivery. I do distinctly recall the Neighbor’s claim that it “…never seemed to hurt anyone. It was poison against poison anyway.”
