Dolly of Palo Pinto
by Fred Pruitt
"One day you gotta drive to DFW to pick up a new hand. She's grouchy and she's grumpy and she hollers at you. She's not like anybody else in the world. You just want to take her in your arms and tell her..." His voice trailed off.
"Tell her what?" Dolly asked, interested.
"Tell her... you worship the ground she walks on."
A tale of a man, a woman, life, and hogs.
