Some background on my today's submission:
The events described in my story are true. It was a truly moving experience...for Bill. I should know, I was the navigator. Don't judge us too harshly.
Walk Tall and Carry a Big Stick
Bill has been looking forward to this trip for months. He’s doing the driving; I’m in charge of navigation and the radio. I open the sunroof for some cool, fresh air and ponder what awaits us at our destination.
We pass farmers’ fields and ramshackle homesteads. In this part of Tennessee, couches take prominent spots on front porches, and rusted out shells of old cars are lawn ornaments.
“Exit 181, ½ mile ahead. We’ve reached Redneck Mecca”, I report.
We pull into a parking lot and locate a space.
The Buford Pusser Home and Museum is open for business.
