In a previous post, I was asked if I am the Jeff Noble who is a weatherman for WBKO in Bowling Green, Kentucky. I have been asked this before. I am not, nor do I want to be confused with any other WBKO weathermen who have been in the news lately.
Nor am I the Jeff Noble who serves as the 3rd District member of the Breathitt County Fiscal Court, and is a resident of Lost Creek. Back in April, when I took a trip down to the Hillbilly Days Festival in Pikeville, my return trip was made through Breathitt County and I stopped along the way on KY 15 well south of Jackson, the Breathitt County seat, and met that Jeff Noble's mother. Breathitt County is home to a large number of people with the last name of Noble, including at least three or four more named Jeff. One is the editor of the Breathitt County Voice, who may or may not be the same person as the County Magistrate - I really don't know. Another one, age 27, was recently arrested on drug-dealing charges. Another Jeff Noble in Breathitt County makes his home in the hamlet of Ned, Kentucky.
Over in Perry County, to the south and east of Breathitt, are at least two more of us, one in Hazard, the other in Bulan along KY 80. I know of one other Jeff Noble, a student at Morehead State University. I do not know where he is from originally. And I met a very young Jeff Noble at the 2004 State Democratic Convention in Lexington. He was from London, Kentucky as I recall.
My first week of college at the University of Kentucky, I met two guys from Colerain, Ohio, outside of Cincinnati. They had gone through high school with yet another Jeff Noble. That Jeff Noble and I had the chance to meet two weeks later in September as he was making his way through Lexington on his way to the University of North Carolina. Not only was he a Jeff Noble, he was, like me, a Jeffrey Thomas Noble, which was chilling. Then we compared Driver's Licenses. At that point, amid some trembling, we each found out the other was going to have a birthday soon thereafter. The day after tomorrow, both of us will turn 47.
To my knowledge, I am the only Jeff Noble in Louisville with a birthday the day after tomorrow.

- Never married, liberal Democrat, born in 1960, opinionated but generally pleasant, member of the Episcopal Church. Graduate of Prestonia Elementary, Durrett High, and Spalding University; the first two now-closed Jefferson County Public Schools, the latter a very small liberal arts college in downtown Louisville affiliated with the Roman Catholic Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. My vocation and avocation is politics. My favorite pastime is driving the backroads of Kentucky and southern Indiana, visiting small towns, political hangouts, courthouses, churches, and cemeteries. You are welcome to ride with me sometime.
