I was born Kenneth Dale Bradford and for whatever reason, seems like country folks always wanted to call people by their middle names. When I entered the U. S. Air Force and met my wife, Maggie, my name was changed to Ken.
I spent my younger years in the Yellow Creek area of Dickson County Tennessee. My father was Roby Bradford and my mother was Alma Hamilton. Mama worked at the shirt factory and my Daddy was a farmer. They both worked very hard.
Even though we were very poor, country life was fun for me. I always looked forward to the spring and summer. There was just something amazing about the sounds and smells of spring in the country.
Some people would call my younger years a tragedy, but I call them a blessing. I learned the value of hard work from both my Mama and my Daddy. I learned how faith in God could get you through anything from my dear Mama.
Even though there were six of us, I was the youngest and spent a lot of time alone with my thoughts.The best part of being alone is that I was the only one to get in that #3 wash tub to take a bath.
To me, home was never a place; it was a feeling. It was the way people I loved said my name.
Aunt Pete, James’s Mom, and my Mom were sisters, so that made us first cousins. James and I spent some time together as kids and we never really did anything mean, but we just didn’t like to be bored. James is an important part of my childhood and getting to put this book together with him was a special treat.
I really thought that getting my age would take longer, but time just keeps on slipping away. Getting "Two Peas In a Pod With a Lot to Say!" published allows me to take one more thing off my bucket list. Hope you enjoy it!
