Take a small town in southern Alabama, and a young lady, just slightly out of step. Add gnarly family trees, entrenched traditions, and everyone living with skeletons in their closets - welcome to Gallagher. There one will find an extraordinary cast of insane characters. And, it could only happen in the South.

Ah, The Things My Mother Kept

"What's in this stack" my brother asked, looking at a rather large stack of papers, folders, and pictures sitting on my mother's guest bed. "Very sensitive documents I thought you may want to review." "Like insurance forms, real estate documents, and tax statements?" "No, your report cards from grades 3 through 9." 'She kept those?" "Oh, those and much more." "I fear to ask." "Pictures." "Oh, God." "Yes, I never knew you favored powder blue leisure suits."
