Cousins Final Chapter

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads, News | Posted on 27-07-2011


This Chapter is pretty close to true. While the Homer in this story is a fictional character, he is based on a real person(s) as there were two black kids that we buddied with some. One of them I played with and one I went frog gigging with. But this really happened on my first furlough home. Things were beginning to change in the south, but still a lot of problems with all the marching in Selma and a few other spots. Pretty close to the absolute truth…… So, far good or bad and for whats its worth here is the Final Chapter of Cousins:    Final Chapter

Cousins, Chapter 3, Homer and Frog Giggin’

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads, News | Posted on 14-07-2010


In the Fifties in Alabama the school were segragated…But we had a few black friends during our teen years, two that we hunted, swam, and fished with pretty regularly. I rolled those two guys into one character and called him Homer. Most of the stories involving him are based on fact and in the Final Chapter of the book  is mostly true. In chapter three, there are a couple of stories, one about the wreck of the Chevy Panel Wagon was told to me as a true story, but I changed the characters and then the story of about us working at the sawmill is dang sure facts. But anyway, I think this chapter turns out pretty well and I hope you will enjoy taking the time to read it.

Cousins, Chapter Nine, Alligator Gar

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads | Posted on 09-02-2010


From the book Cousins I have added another story to the downloads. I invite you to read it and I hope you enjoy it. I used the name Middle Creek in the book….It is really Coal Fire Creek…I should have used its real name, huh? click on the blue print…

We did have a swimming hole with a huge cypress stump out in the very middle of the creek. I don’t recall exactly how big it was, but several of us boys could sit on it at the same time. When Coal Fire Creek was running clear you could often see this big alligator gar swimming around the hole. I am pretty sure he was as long as us boys were tall. It was a scary sight to behold. Here is the story as one cousin told it, truth stretched somewhat, but ball park, kinda, well….,ok, here it is the way I wrote it….Cousins, Chapter Nine, Alligator Gar
