Times have changed.
The kewl thang is that us old silverbacks & our girls are damn ready to tell our story!http://snakedoctor.blogspot.com
SNAKE DOCTOR is my fictional vision of Dothan. It's a combination of the DAHTHUM SH*8TY & Marianna, Chattahoochee w/ a little T-town & B'ham throwed in.
If you have an interest in DIRT, you gonna like dis!
The following is a sampling of the feedback which is simply TALKING TRASH which is SOMETHING we do so well!
I gotta say it. I love THE DAY BEAR BRYANT CD.
Folks real close to me have said things about this CD that make me want to go do something crazy.
You ever watch COPS and see how it takes five guys to put ONE cat down. That's because in most cases that cat has never been put down. That's a problem.
A lotta folks never had their ass whipped.
I fix up Section 8 housing.
I ain't got no reason to go out looking for trouble.
Take a break and check this P.S. out!
Heh..Heh...P. is/was a friend of my 1st husband. That's how I know P. In '79 R. & I were moving to Baton Rouge, P. offered his assistance in packing & loading our truck. Well, he didn't assist for too long, cause he was such a pain in the ass...whining & complaining, that pretty soon R. cussed him out & told him to leave. It was soooo funny!!
I knew that B. father was in some sort of trouble, but didn't know what. Does P. even have a job now? Or does he just keep up the family tradition of stealing?! I know that he finally talked a nurse named ? into marrying him several years ago...don't know if that's still on or not. You gotta admit that P. was a lazy ass hanger-on obnoxious SOB!! And where is B. now? In prison? I remember that little house behind the old dealership that B. lived in
I DO remember the Beauty Shop being trashed, now that you mention it. But I don't remember the fish under the house. THESE WERE GROWN MEN?!! How funny.
Yeah, I remember J...Mom of A., J, & M.? (Was that her name?) J. got a corvette when we were Seniors at DHS & during AEA @ PC, B. & M. had a bad wreck in it on the Hathaway Bridge. M. died a few days later & B. has mush for brains now. He was the one driving. We went to see that car at the wrecker place & it looked like a crumpled coke can. Sad. And M's girlfriend at the time, B., was staying with us at The F. being "chaperoned" by my aunt & uncle. The same ones who used to take us to the Big BAM shows. We always asked for room 235 cause it was a corner room & we made alot of noise & if the cops came, we had a quick escape to the pool area & the beach. Hell, they couldn't catch us ALL scattering in different directions! My uncle would talk to the cops & apologize & then we'd re-group later.

Janie Whatley owned Whatley Brick. She lived in that brick house on the east side of the Circle across from Whatley Brick.
Remember that when A & my Daddy had their fight, it was '56 and they were both around 35. A pirated timber for a living. He'd just go on someone's property, cut their timber and when they bitched, threatened to kill them. That was the way he made most of his money back then.
I'm not sure what Daddy did to piss A off so bad but I'm pretty sure Daddy got hired by "the powers that be" to tell A "to cut that shit out!"
I think dat B's dad was able to trash the dealership at will because Mr. put a couple hundred pounds of frozen mullet under the N. house and trashed the beauty shop for a few weeks.
Yeah, B. was fencing stolen property to New Orleans. One of my best childhood friends was his first cousin, P.. P. is a serious student of B's cleptomania. B's Daddy got busted for using National Guard cargo planes to ship cars to Dothan from the Port of Jacksonville.

I think a LOT of people did the same "dry run" to Panam City to check the timeline for themselves...I heard of several doing it!! Yeah...I think Mrs. Simmons actually got away with murder & A helped. It was sooo front page for several days, and then it was just quietly dropped & forgotten about. A probably got more than a monetary pay-off from her on that one. That's another theory I've heard...that they were having an affair. But hell, it seems that ole A was having affairs 24/7! I always thought he was a "dirty ole man". He made my skin crawl. And his son, thinks he walks on water.
And I think that Janie Whatley my be a 2nd cousin to my Mom. Was she related to Christine Whatley? I KNOW that she's Mom's 2nd cousin. I asked Mom today if she remembered the Parrish case. She can't remember why he was bribing a cop (she's like me, but 76 yrs old...& has to think about it for a while!), but she said there was so much underhanded, good ole boy politicin' going on in those days that she wouldn't be surprised if it were true.
Yeah, old A thought he was a real bad-ass, carry a big stick, "Buford Pusser" (Walking Tall) type. Only he wasn't very honest & did "favors" for folks & when he needed to, he'd call in his chips for payback. What did he & your father have words about? That is so strange that A would ride by your house all night, but that doesn't surprise me, either.
I had to lie down for a nap at 6PM last night & awoke at midnight & now I'm WIDE AWAKE. Do you remember when B's dad went to B's dad's car dealership right there across from DHS & vandalized it? I think breaking out the showfloor windows out & pouring a bunch of paint all over the place...including new cars!! I'm no real sure whatever happened about that, either. It was hushed up...except I went to DHS with B. & he was always bragging about it! My cousin worked for Mrs. N. at her in-home beauty shop. I'm sure you know where it is...
Do you remember when B. was burglarizing "old Dothan" homes & stealing antiques from them? He'd even take the stained glass windows out of their frames, too!
This is CSI~Dothan, signing off for now. Any further updates will be immediately forwarded to you!
I think between the two of us, we could write a lot of detective novels....mostly NON-FICTION!
