Cousins, Chapter Eleven, Airplane Crash

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads | Posted on 10-12-2009


Chapter_Eleven…We had one store in my community back in Alabama. It was situated on top of a hill. At the bottom of this hill was my uncle’s corn patch, beautiful rows of tall corn. The airplane crash happened and several of us cousins were there. This is that story, kind of, as I might have souped it up just a little, but not much…It was an exciting few days around our community.Read about it here in this download. Click on the blue Chaper Eleven to read or just click on all the downloads over to the right column. thanks, Pete

Bernie, also starring Ralph and Carlos

A few years ago I had just completed a book about a little white mouse. I was excited about this story. While visiting no. 1 son and no. 2 son they were asking me about my new project and I told them about my English speaking white mouse, “Bernie”, and they said, “Dad, have you heard of Stuart Little?” “No,of course not, I have been to busy writing.” So, because Stuart Little beat me coming out,  I have done nothing with my story, not even a good edit, yet. So, I am going to put Chapter One of Bernie, Also Starring Ralph and Carlos in the downloads and let you tell me if you want more.

Cousins, Chapter Ten, Running Away

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads, News | Posted on 18-06-2009


Yeah, we did try to run away. This story is kind of true. That dad-gum marine belt for sure is true. Pop used it to sharpen his straight razor and to wear out my butt. He only shaved two or three times a week, so most of the usage was probably on my bottom. I’m sure I deserved every one I got. We had too many kin folks watching us to get away with much meanness. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the running away story……Cousins, Chapter Ten, Running Away

Cousins, Chapter Six, Big Momma

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads, News | Posted on 12-06-2009


chapter_six_big_momma  Cousins is a work of fiction. Chapter Six is almost all factual with some name changing, etc. My grandfather dying is actual. Big Momma is real. The story of her baptism was related to me as being factual. And her place in my heart remains unchanged, I loved her and part of her will always live inside of me. I hope you enjoy the story.
