My Dad and Harper Lee
My Dad is always full of surprises! He and Mom took us out to dinner tonight. I was telling him that I started a book club and we just read Harper Lee' s newly released book. He said, "Granddaddy and I used to fish with her all the time." Apparently she had a cabin near Mr. Jaffey's, Granddaddy's employer, on the coast. He said Harper Lee was a great fisherman and an excellent poker player. He had funny stories of her kicking Mr. Jaffey out of the boat once. Granddaddy had to drive the boat and the vehicles to ensure everyone's safety! Crazy! Wish I could ask Granddaddy for more details. So many untold adventures!
