Cranks My Tractor

Standing beside my Cousin John was what seemed to be a beautiful blonde haired girl holding a football and wearing a football uniform. The child seemed to be 11 or 12 years old.

I looked at the picture closer and didn’t make reference to my thinking the football player was a girl.

I love looking at pictures of Cousin John because his facial features look so much like my Daddy. You can tell by looking at him, he’s kind, but not the type of fellow you would want to cross.

Cousin John had on overalls, an Alabama hat and sunglasses and was holding his mouth in such a way that reminded me so much of my Daddy.

I said to myself, “These are my people; this is where I come from.”

Asking Cousin John’s daughter tactfully, “Who is that with Cousin John?”

She replied, “That’s Billy Bob! My son’s best friend.”
