About the Author:

A Southern by birth, the author, Thomas E. Blaylock, Jr., experienced both rural and urban life styles. Born in Tennessee in 1931, his mother claims his first words were not "mama" or "daddy". Rather, he asked the question, "What is that?" He has asked that question ever since, in the University, in the Seminary and in the philosophical and social walks of life. Asking questions brings people's attention and the author is a student of people, always looking for those unique, weird, humorous and wonderful characters to be found everywhere. These Cajun characters show the diversity of thought and the different philosophical approaches to life by various people in the same culture. The author views and relates these differences in economic status, occupation, education, prestige and authority with humorous and philosophical eyes.
