Back in the Day

Have you ever heard of a gnat smoke? Back in the day, we loved sitting outside on a summer evening at my grandparents' house in West Virginia, but the bugs would eat us up. Mammaw would put an old rag in a coal bucket, then set the rag on fire. She let it burn for a few minutes. After she tamped it out, the smoke would keep the bugs away, which was why she called it a gnat smoke.
