I tell you, being Sheriff Kenni Lowry's mama is a hard job. I mean, it was hard just being her mama, but the mama of the sheriff. Now that's somethin' I've got to live up to and it's hard. You know all them henny hens, that's what we call all the gossipy old ladies in Cottonwood, they call me when someone dies or some crime happens because they think I've got some inside scoop. Even if I did, I can only give them a tidbit just to give them somethin' to chew on.
Let me tell you, being a southern woman is not all it's cracked up to be. Not only do we all stayed dolled up all the time, join multiple committees, belong on several clubs, and live in pearls. . .we also have to cook.
I'm not talking any old recipe. I'm not talking just throwing things together. I'm talking making from scratch cooking. You see, your cookin' abilities will make you or break you on the societal chain.
It's a competition of sorts, but no one would ever have the gall to call it what it is. We send days making several of the same casserole or dish and bring the best one. I know, because I do the same thing. I didn't win the big Cottonwood bake off and have my pot pie featured on the Cooking Channel for just throwing stuff together.
Now, go on and get out of here. I've got a southern chicken pot pie to make for Beryle Stone's repass. And I can't sit here all day gabbing about nothin'.
Oh, yes! That Beryle Stone. Mmhhmm, the big author with that huge box office, Academy Award winner from the 60's. She's a citizen of Cottonwood and she came back here to retire. Unfortunately, she died. So sad.
But I did hear from the girls in the Auxiliary group and down at Tiny Tina's Salon, which meant I heard it in two different places and it can't be rumor, that Beryle had written a tell all book. And it's about the people in Cottonwood. Tell all! She's gonna spill her guts and everyone in town is dying to get their hands on it.
