    I promised you guys a Nash Buckingham story that has never been published in book form ....

    This story is about a trip back to the "University of Tennessee" campus to visit his daughter to witness the birth of his first grandchild in 1944. Buckingham was 64 years old at the time he wrote this story in the form of a letter to "General Red Likker", an old UT football player and friend from the 1900-1902- era---

    As Nash is awaiting news from the hospital, he wanders about the UT campus and reminisces about his college days, friends, hunting the farms and rivers around the campus, and the sundry misadventures of a callow young man.

    On a serious note ---
    This story is not politically correct :l ---- It has religious overtones concerning war --- racial innuendo (common of this period).

    On a lighter note --- Gambling, drinking and typical college misbehavior --- Some hilarious hunting stories --- And a lot of Knoxville tidbits /local people, places, and things. ---

    The writing style is from a day long ago, but trust me, it's worth the effort to "Google" the words and phrases that you don't understand.

    You will want to know what "School-Butter" means :l --- Where's the OLD "Cumberland Hotel" and what is "Hot Tom and Jerry" --- hunting spots up and down the Tennessee river are mentioned --- and most of all, how to cook up a fine mess of "Hell Divers" :l

    In this story "dogs get drunk", "men get stoned, shot, and dunked under water", "duck hunting, quail hunting, rabbit hunting", Not to mention, "Pretty college girls", "Frat Houses" and roasted little pigs with pudding in their belly !!!

    This story jumps about, but it is a FUN read !!!

    It is too long to post on the forum, so anyone wanting a copy of the story please post up here, then "PM" me your email address and I'll send it to you pronto !!!

    See ya, Gil
