West Virginia Stars
A preacher-friend of mine tells the story of showing one of his “big city” friends around his old stompin’ grounds in southern WV. After a day of seeing all the sights—the natural beauty of the mountains, the streams, and such—it began to get dark, and they started the journey around some of the back roads to where they were going to spend the night.
The “city” friend began to look at the stars, commenting several times on how bright they were, and how he could never see them so in the city.
As they snaked along a mountain road, the friend—looking up out his window as they drove—made the comment that the stars were just so bright and looked so close that he felt like he could almost reach out and touch them—to which my preacher-friend dryly commented, “Well, that’s because they're porch lights.”
