Fighting toothlessness in Appalachia

This article reminds me of a gem Sharon had told Tyler several years ago on a trip from Indiana to Georgia.

Sharon: You know you’re in Kentucky when you see people who are missing their teeth.

A short while later, they pull into a gas station in Kentucky. Tyler saw a couple people sitting front, missing several front teeth. He was so excited that all he could point t them and tug at Sharon’s arm.
