Bubbleland Rises Again
A Motel reader just emailed to let me know that my article on Bubbleland
(aka the Kentucky Bend), written in 1995, has been referenced in the Wikipedia article on the area
. (See the last link in the External Links section.) I am so pleased and excited that the term Bubbleland has semi-officially become a term for the area.
Back in 1995, we viewed Bubbleland from the Missouri side of the Mississippi River. A few years later, when we were living in Austin, I got an email about a family reunion there, inviting me to attend. I didn't go (it seemed too far and hard to go), but I kind of regret that now. One day I will make it to Bubbleland.
