“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Who says Florida's not Southern?
Monday, November 1, 2010

Consider this true scenario from my Fort Myers neighborhood.

A woman's cat dies and she asks her friend if she can bury it in the friend's yard. Even more interesting: These two women are friends but not super-close friends.

The gracious friend says yes and has her hired man (who is black) dig a hole in the yard, which he lines with a blanket and thoughtfully surrounds with chairs for visiting mourners.

Meanwhile, the cat is FROZEN, awaiting the ceremony.

Our Southern author-friend Flannery O'Connor certainly couldn't dream up anything better.
