Reader Queries

Each month, The Kentucky Explorer magazine receives literally scores of letters from our faithful readers. Among those letters we often find queries, ranging from requests for words to songs and poems to trying to locate former classmates and military buddies of long ago.


Here are a few queries from May 2006




Formerly Of First Creek
In Perry County

Dear Editor:
A photo of the First Creek High School Basketball Team of 1941 of Perry County was published in the March 2006 issue of The Kentucky Explorer.
I was a cheerleader at First Creek High School for three years, graduating in 1940. I attended grade school at Blue Diamond in Perry County.
I would like to hear from any reader who knows the history of Blue Diamond at First Creek or remembers the George and Isadore Childers family. I have relatives who lived in many towns in Kentucky.
Keep up the good work with the magazine.

Words To Song Request
Dear Editor:
I enjoy The Kentucky Explorer and have found its readers to be extremely helpful.
My request is for the words to a country song that was popular most likely in the late 1940s to early 1950s. I believe the title may have been "Life Gets Tedious." I can't recall who sang the song, but I think of some of the words from time to time and smile.
