As an intern for the Gravestone Gazette, I was asked to cover the inauguration ceremony of Mayor Myrton J. Peck. 

Look at this outfit.  Can you believe he taped up his camouflage socks?  And his wife, LuLu Bell, and mother-in-law, Buela “Mamma B” Gladys McCoy,  don’t look much better.  Mr. Peck does look a lot skinnier, though.  I think he got food poisoning from the catfish he caught while Okie Noodling.

It is unbelievable that I have to live with these people.  My friend gave me a copy of a magazine called “Dallas Southern Style.”  Compared to our little newspaper here, the writing is Pulitzer Prize winning material. 

The ads in the magazine so intrigue me.  Lots of fancy restaurants (even a Lebanese restaurant!), pretty stores, pretty people, PLASTIC SURGERY!  Maybe I can go there one day and get this honker of a nose fixed.
