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

Cousins, Chapter Eight, Summer Vacation

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


From my book on the teenage cousins of the 1950 in Pickens County, AL, this chapter is about spending all summer working on a swimming hole and all that happened concerning that particular swimming hole. The story is true, to a point, with the writer taking many liberties and changing some names and maybe altering a few facts here and there….It was a good summer…Some of you Pickens County boys will remember this swimming hole. Click on the high lighted print to read,…Chapter Eight, Summer Vacation

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

Posted by Pete | Posted in Downloads | Posted on 19-11-2009


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. Ralph is a carrier pigeon that speaks English also and has been trained by the CIA for work in third world countries. Upon hearing they eat pigeons in the third world countries, he went AWOL.
