• Shelby’s influence at Willow Springs

    Don’t get me wrong I love the era I live in, the technology that we have and the opportunities it gives me. But if I had a chance to rewind the clock and spend 5 years in the 1960’s I wouldn’t for a second think twice about it. The more time I spent in Southern […]
