    At one time these bookends sat in my grandfather's study. I have always love them. When my grandfather passed away my grandma gave these to me. They look beautiful atop the oak lawyers bookcase in the living room. I've never seen another set in all my years of picking. If you have please let me know.

      My brother and I were THAT close to being millionaires ! I had hurt my leg in an accident and had a little money from the settlement. We were going to start a pig farm up in the mountains. With the North Carolinians love of pork barbecue we were a shoo-in!

      I bought 10 acres up in the hills. While my brother went to pick up the hogs, I decided to walk the perimeter of the farm. It was quite an effort since I still walked with a cane from the accident. A little over half way, one of North Carolina's deadly timberrattlers lunged at me. Fortunately, it missed me, but its fangs sunk into my cane! That cane swole up so big we had enough wood to fence the entire ten acres! My brother was surprised to see the fencing when he returned. We turned the hogs out and went home for a good nights sleep. Next morning when we got back we saw an awful sight. The swelling had gone down in that fence and it choked them hogs to death! We was back working 9 to 5!
    25. officialfuel officialfuel, 9 years ago
      Savoychina1, that is the best one I've ever heard! I better get a few more benches after a story like that. I'm sure there are more to come. LOL
    26. officialfuel officialfuel, 9 years ago
      You've got to admit that was a good one! He wasn't lying, just stretching the truth a bit.
    27. officialfuel officialfuel, 9 years ago
      You guys are good! I guess we will have flip a coin too see who wins.
    28. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 9 years ago
      AR8 Jason...no reason to talk about my Dad !
    29. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 9 years ago
      He used to tell us 'bout when he got out of Divinity School. He was assigned as a circuit rider. Each Sunday he would go to a different small church. One Sunday he showed up at a new church and there wont (Carolina verb) but one farmer showed up. Well, Dad was young and full of enthusiasm so he gave the full program. There was singing before and after the sermon, an offetory and several prayers mixt in. After the benediction he stood outside to greet the farmer. "How did I do?" he asked, smiling.

      "Well," said the farmer,"Every morning I load up a wagon of hay for my 40 head of cattle. If don't but one show up, I don't give him the whole load!"
    30. Savoychina1 Savoychina1, 9 years ago
      We was doin' alright with Pa as a preacher. It was awful lean at first but then Pa come up with a new system. After church he would put all of the offering in one box. Then he would throw it up in the air and say,"Lord, you grab what you want cause what comes down is mine!" That worked for a while until one Sunday I guess the Lord got tired of that and He just took Pa instead!
    31. officialfuel officialfuel, 9 years ago
