From A Cracked Pot

You hear soft footfalls behind you. Voices whisper your name. Doors close and floorboards moan, yet no one is there. You turn to look behind you, but nothing is there. Always, unseen eyes watch you from the shadows. You see them just out of your periphery vision; yet you can never fully see them. You see a flicker of movement behind you, but it vanishes as quickly as it appeared. They haunt you, especially at night when all is quiet. They haunt when all you have are your thoughts and memories of yesteryear.

Needmore Days

Most of the folks who lived around Needmore were good honest, hard-working folks. They believed in God, in family and in their country. A few were not to be believed nor trusted. But the community soon figured them out and their standing in the community was pretty low. Dishonest folks weren't tolerated very well.

She says it is a quiet time for her in the car.

It was the wildest night around Uncle Gordon’s house since the time Dooley put the Arthritis Hot Rub Ointment into the Preparation H tube. That caused some real excitement for Aunt Alvie, and eventually caused some problems for Dooley as well. But, that is another story and we will tell about that some other time.
