Ugh. Didn’t sleep last night, and someone is taking me out to lunch and I’m mad that I will be too tired to completely enjoy being taken out to lunch. Damnit. And cheese will be involved!
I’ve begun my singing coal miners research. So far I know that there was a huge wave of Welsh immigrants in the 19th century who settled in Pennsylvania to work in the mines, working in mines was deadly, and they brought their singing ways with them. Now I’ve got to find a story in there. Of course there are millions, but I have to find the one that fits with my book.
I watched this documentary about a former mining town that has been on fire since 1962. It’s called The Town that Was. Sad.
