This is the 9th vignette for the book, A Twinkle in the Eyes of God, A Monk Buttman Mystery. In it are characters from the book, and is meant to add a little backstory to it.
Chester Jenkins called me over. His son Farrell, and my daughter Rebekah, were engaged and soon to be married. Apparently, this gave him license to pester me about my affairs. I knew of Chess and his boys, Carroll and Darrell, from the feed store they ran in town.
“Looks like we’ll be family soon, Will,” he said, stating the obvious.
“Looks like,” I said.

“Jude Martindale was in here the other day,” he said.
“Yep. Askin’ about this and that…” He raised his eyebrows.
“Most of us, do, Chess.”
