JD GEE: Man had peculiar notions, 'even for Russell County'
Royvillian lived with regret for ever testing termaters, and only a bit more tolerance for pertaters
By JD Gee
The photo of the flat of beautiful tomatoes and the accompanying cutline you ran a day or two ago brought to mind a childhood memory.
About 1959-61, my folks ran a grocery store in downtown Royville in the shire of Russell.
One of the regulars (mostly as a loafer) at the store was Mr. H-------, a man of over sixty summers who had some mighty peculiar notions, even for Russell County.
I remember hearing him tell someone, "I never et but one termater in my life and I've allus regretted eatin' that'un."
The gentleman scarely thought higher of pertaters, confessing to having had eaten only "a handful" of spuds during the course of his threescore and more years. - JD GEE
