Some thirty years ago the seed that would grow into this book was planted in my head when my wife Linda and I took pre-school daughter Ashley, now a mother and wife in her own right, to play in one of the many streams that cut our property. Frogs and their pollywogs, crawdads and minnows were in abundance along with a watermelon that I had placed into the dammed up stream to cool ...just like my grandparents had done many, many years earlier. I had warm memories of picking red, vine ripened tomatoes and eating them whole for lunch before having a stream cooled watermelon split open for a sweet and refreshing mid-afternoon snack. I wanted Ashley to have some of the same experiences. Later as I struggled to get the watermelon out of the stream she pointed out, “Wouldn’t it been easier just to put it in the refrigerator?” Yep, and she doesn’t eat raw tomatoes either. Are you sure you are mine? This is a recollection of growing up rural and Southern during the Fifties and Sixties but with an eye on the present.

Don Miller is a retired history and science teacher and coach of forty-two years. Growing up in the then rural area of Indian Land, SC, he graduated from Indian Land High School in 1968 before receiving his AB degree in history from Newberry College in 1972. He has a Master’s Degree in Administration and Supervision from Clemson University and a Master’s plus Thirty in Science Education courtesy of almost every college in the state of South Carolina. Named state coach of the year twice in baseball and once in soccer, he began his teaching career in 1973. Don fully retired after baseball season this past spring...maybe. Drawing heavily from his rural up-bring and career, Don hopes to continue writing while operating his “organic” hobby farm with his wife Linda Gail, also a retired teacher and coach. She has been his “ray of sunshine on steroids” for over thirty years. Don has one daughter, Ashley, a former social worker and educator, who is now a registered nurse despite her tender age. She is married to Justin Childress and they have one daughter, a two year old red-headed ball of fire named Miller Kathryn. Popi Don has not yet decided what he is going to call her MK, Miller, Kate or Monkey although he is leaning toward Kate just to be different.
