All stories promote faith and virtue.What can an old black man and a young white boy in the rural Georgia of the late fifties possibly have in common?

Quite a lot, as it turns out. Two of the holiday stories, “Pappy and Me and the Ghost Made Three” and “A Pappy Christmas” revolve around the characters of Pappy and Jeremy. The story wherein the characters first appeared is “Pappy and the Sprouts”, so I have included that as a bonus. It is fairly short, but the other two are a good bit longer, with chapters. The third holiday story, the one for Thanksgiving, is “Down the Red Dirt Road.”Pappy and the SproutsThis is the story in which the characters of Jeremy and Pappy first appeared.

As you will see, Jeremy and Pappy are best friends. No, they are more than best friends, they are family, but Pappy is an old trickster who is fond of teasing and playing jokes, of one kind or another, on poor little Jeremy who thinks often about good natured revenge but can never seem to come up with any kind of plan that might work. Then, as Jeremy says, “...a angel (or was it the devil?) whispered in my ear about the sprouts, and an idea was born.”Will Jeremy finally be able to turn the tables a bit on wily old Pappy?

And what are sprouts, anyway? I guess youll just have to check out the story to see.(3400 words)Pappy and Me and the Ghost Made ThreeDue to teasing by his friends at school, Jeremy has promised that he will spend the night in the old Butler plantation manor house on Halloween, but when Jeremy tells Pappy, and asks his friend to go with him, Pappy is curiously quiet and refuses to go, telling Jeremy that he shouldnt go, either. Is he really afraid? Jeremy says that Pappy isnt afraid of anything.

Then what? What is it, do you suppose, that Pappy knows, or thinks he knows, that Jeremy doesnt? I can think of one way to find out.(16,800 words, 5 chapters)Down the Red Dirt RoadIn the age of the airplane, why would anyone who could afford to travel by air endure, instead, a “bone tiring” cross-country bus ride? Our second holiday story, “Down the Red Dirt Road” is a story of tragedy, hope, redemption, and, appropriately, thanksgiving.

It is best described as “a different kind of Thanksgiving story.”(3,600 words)A Pappy ChristmasBecause of a family emergency, both of Jeremys parents are called out of town over Christmas, so Jeremy gets to stay with, and spend Christmas with, his best friend, Pappy. Naturally, antics and adventure ensue with a heartwarming ending.

If you like sentimental, family-friendly stories that depict faith and virtue, then this one is for you.(28,200 words, 11 chapters)
