I remember just a sittin’ on the porch that sultry summer night, just a listenin’ to the junebugs whizzing by, and sippin’ on a mint julep… and hopin’ that those junebugs didn’t do any whizzing in the julep.

Anyhow, I heard somebody singin’ Zippity-doo-dah from behind the magnolia, so I went and took a look-see, and bless my britches!… It was none other than William Faulkner whittlin’ a wooden chipmunk… And, Oh my!, but the stories he told me that night as the glowworms glowed and the juleps flowed…

And that’s where all the bourbon went, Honey… honest!
