My cousin Cooter (pictured here), is a natural storyteller. Along with his stories, he likes to show illustrations of his tales. Our favr’te down in the holler (I know it’s my most fav’rite.) is cousin Cooter’s retellin’ of that there J.R.R. Tolkien’s classical non-fictional story, The Lords of the Ring: The Two Towers.

Of course, when he creates his illustrations, cousin Cooter does so within the only environmental frame-work he knows ‘bout… his country upbringin’. For those who find it hard to interpret Cooter’s illustration of, The Two Towers, let me hep a-bit.

First off, don’t let these two tall, tall, massively tall buildin’s scare ya none. Although they might have some resembl’nce to those tall towers in that famous movie (sos I’m told), they are not quite the same… sometimes a second extra long stare will ver’fy this out. Specs will hep too, if ya sup’ose to wear ‘em. Cousin Cooter’s clever visual illustration of those considerable super colossal walloping altitudinous towerin’ towers are based on his keen illusions that strike him oncet in awhile… along with a couple of silos located in Jeb’s cow pasture, jest two miles from the house. Now, ya might ask this question (I know I did): How did cousin Cooter transfer his illusions of them towers to illustrations of them towers? Mighty fine and smart question! The answer is simple, yet complext. The simple, part, of this here answer is, cousin Cooter learnt the computer. The complext, part, of this here answer is… the computer.

Ya see, Cousin Cooter, in his spare time, learnt the computer and that high teck stuff, what they call… “programs”. The word, “program”, according to Cousin Cooter, is made up of two old timey words: “pro”… which means “PROfessional.” And “gram”: which means, “something written or drawn”, accordin’ to that language of that there Greek country located acrosst the river. Anyway, after givin’ much cipherin’ over the matter, Cousin Cooter concluded hisself to be a professional writer and illustrator. And, down here in the holler, wes all witnesses of that fact. He’s been such a blessin’ to the lower ‘hood… ’bout brings me to tears just thinkin’ ’bout it.

Cousin Cooter says his next big project may be the takin’ on of his retellin’ of… Returnin’ of That there King, another poplar classical non-fictional story by J. R. R. Tolkien. I swear, if I ever meet that Mr. Tolkien, I’m goin’ to shake his hand fer givin’ my cousin Cooter idees and illusions that really did jump start his professional writin’ and illustratin’ career.

This wonderful illusion, transferred to illustration, by cousin Cooter, is deadicated to all those J. R. R. Tolkien’s fans… and Cooter fans a-like.
