  • On Walker’s Bend, in the 1960s, when a loved one died, we didn’t have a proper funeral home; we had Brother Rannie. He was a mortician and part time taxidermist. He didn’t advertise it, but if you used him for your funeralizing needs, he would mount your next deer head free.

I also consider myself to be a recycler/reuser par excellance. My husband may see junk where I see possibility.
