My Uncle Fossill and I were sitting out on his front porch one night listening to the owls hoot down in the hollow and sharing memories about the good times we had in the past,I asked Uncle Fossill if he remembered that Bear that He and Cousin Buford had treed one time,He replied that it wasn't Buford that helped him,it was Cousin Leroy,Cousin Leroy ? i said,who is Cousin Leroy ?
Oh Cousin Leroy is married to Aunt Sal from New Mexico,they got married and moved up here to Tennessee.Oh I said,I didn't know we had kin folks out in New Mexico.
Well,we do.Said Uncle Fossill.I said do they have any kids ? yep,they got about 8 kids.Well i said i don't believe that I know any of those kids.yes you do,you know Buford.
Oh yes,i said I do know him.But Uncle Fossill,I said,what about that old Bear you treed ?
Bear ? said Uncle Fossill, what Bear? I thought we were talking about your Kin Folks from New Mexico.
