People Like them

     We heard statements like that. It often signals some sort of negative bias against a group, race, and etc. Bubba and T. Douglas are those kind of people. Our parents might have warned us about hanging out with such company.
     BCVR-6 promises comedy and drama follow some of the unexpected twist and turns found in BCVR-5 What Would Bubba Do?
     ↑ Above L-R: The author, Joshua Seidl. Sgt. T. Douglas, and Bubba Jr., two of Joshua's fictional characters on display.
To the right → T. Douglas at 15. Gorky kid, and underweight, he loved country music and dressed the part; a bit off track for a 1966 Michigan Baby Boomer.
     Olivia whispered, "He's scrawny, but cute." May muttered, "Looking good in those jeans, too."
     He blushed and they giggled louder.
    His grandfather once wanted him killed and nearly succeeded.

Metis, Euro-American and Native American interaction in a contemporary historical setting, 1917-2010 in pristine northern Great Lakes woodland communities. Carried in a whimsical, witty, dramatic, sentimental manner.
