This site is about my life growing up and growing older in Mathews County, a rural, water-bound community on the way to nowhere in particular.
How exactly does one pronounce "Redart". I have always said it RE- dart like RE- do. You'd think I'd ask that sooner than 30 some years after starting to say it. I also have an issue with Remlik which I have all my life called RE- MILK. Like I have to go milk the cow again.
Actually Jamie, it's pronounced like the words "red" and "art" run together.Always liked the name, which is the word Trader spelled backwards (apparently, there were a lot of post offices that wanted that name, so the person in Mathews went a different way with it). Just like Remlik is Kilmer spelled backwards. And, Moon, where I live, was intended to be called "noon" (the time the mail was posted), but the postal official read the application wrong. I may be easily amused, but I find the names of post offices fascinating.
