Here is an excerpt from Small Town Crazy:
“Went to find out what was going on and tripped over Rev and Pastor Mather, knelt in front of fireplace. Damn how many times told him wasn’t pulpit or altar, so asked them what the hell they thought they were doing.
“Myrtle busted out of kitchen, madder than them hornets. Felt sorry for them two. Never seen her so riled. Instead of correcting them started yelling at me. She told me to leave them alone and go put some decent clothes on.
“So did, then went and poured cup of coffee. As I sat down, Rev said that Pastor Mather was going with us. Damn near burned my prize, spilled whole cup on myself. Your mother told me time to teach Rev to drive. Nothing was said about Lard Ass tagging along.
“Myrtle came back from bathroom right then and wanted to know what was wrong. All of us tried to tell her at same time. Boy she got madder then. Thought been that way earlier, but I was wrong. First time ever saw her lose her temper but she sure did.
“Then she threatened to burn the biscuits if I didn’t start behaving. We both joked about that, but she never was serious before. Knew then she meant what she said.
“By then think would have given my left little toe for a drink. Knew no way though. Then remembered some pot hidden down at barn. Since knew was going to have to take Rev and could not avoid Lard Ass tagging along, told them needed to go check on hogs. Smoked one as feed and watered them. Then rolled couple to take with me. Knew would need them before the day was over, especially with Pastor Mather along.
“By time got to Special, Rev almost had Pastor Mather shoved in the back seat. ‘Word of prayer,’ Pastor Mather said as he got in.
“Screw you, thought to myself. Special must have felt same way because she burned rubber as left driveway. Last time done that was when got back from war. Felt like she was as happy for me to be back driving her as felt being able to do again. Think that’s when started calling her Special. Just seemed to fit.
“Gawd, what a car. Loved her.” Earl leaned forward and gently lifted the tire, hugging it tight to his chest.
“Know that big field past’s George’s?” It was an area larger than a football field that for some unknown reason had been paved over.
“Mean there’s nothing there to hurt Special. Hadn’t wanted to use her, but with Pastor Mather along won’t be able to all squeeze into truck. Of course by then was ready to suggest take truck and stick Lard Ass in back. But knew better by then than suggest that. And no way Myrtle was going to let us use her car.
“Anyway, when got there, jumped out. Had to smoke joint quick. Whole way there them two argued and screamed at each other all about Bible verses and what they meant. Shit, had headache like been hit upside head.
“Pastor Mather shot out of backseat like been greased before got joint to mouth.
