One of the families at political odds with ours—over prohibition, I believe—was the Dies family, a situation made somewhat awkward by the fact that my father's sister Elm was married to Tom Dies, who, at one time, was Hardin County attorney.  She was in the middle of making mayhaw jelly.  The same blood stirred in the veins of my Aunt Elm.  Then, according to all accounts, he bowed to her and, taking up his hat, left the courtroom.

It was said that if you saw a man in Khakis wearing a gold watch, carrying a Winchester, and followed by at least two blooded hounds, that man was more than likely Bud Hooks.
