I spent many of my days in the good lords country. Heck it's where I was born and raised! Well, we'd go everywhere together, well me and my brothers Boomer and Billy. We go out to the farm do our daily duties or if we were lucky go down into town and get us some fix'ins. Ma' would stay home with Mary Beth and cook us up a fine meal for the days work we done. But one summer in particular was so unforgettable! When I first saw the love of my life Roxi. She had brains, beauty and a body! Some would say the total package, a good god loving women with legs as far as the eyes could see. The only problem was that her grandfather was the sheriff of all of Piscataquis County! And her father was no rabbit of Easter Sunday either! But I knew she was gonna be my wife. That whole summer was dedicated to her. Going to the swimming hole or to the local hotspots, even a hoedown or two. I was in love and I was only 17 years of age. But once word got out around town that i was seeing her, the her brothers were clean on my trail! And that is no picnic I wanted to be invited to. So i left town didn't say a word to her, just picked my things up and left. Not even knowing if i was coming back or not. But then about a few years after I looked up miss Roxi to see if that spark was still there. I soon found out she is now happily married to my good friend Hank and they have a baby boy and one on the way. To be honest I'm happy for them. And I wouldn't change that summer for the world!
