JAKE LEG – JUNE 25, 2015 by Eddie Trapp

While in Galveston riding around with the Glossup’s a while back we saw a man limping across a parking lot. Ronny said his dad, Weldon, referred to people like that as having a “jake leg.” I wondered where in the world that phrase came from. When we got home in a few days I did some research. Throughout history, many men (and women) have resorted to occasionally “taking a nip” of alcohol for various reasons. I remember several older...

Moms Runaway Turkey

Recently my mother made her nightly coop check to be certain all the chickens and turkeys were in their house. The chickens were accounted for, but a hen turkey was missing. We were all ‘encouraged’ to run outside in the dark, to search for the hen. We never found her. Eventually we gave up and went back inside. First thing the next morning all three turkeys were present.  Instant relief for mom who knew something might...
