About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
One evening at Snoutswarts during the time that the twins were settled comfortably in their Lazyboys, the phone rang and Shannon picked it up. She didn’t bother to see who was calling right away, but later glanced at the caller I.D. which indicated that the call was from the truck stop in Sioux Falls, which was operated by Lydia and her husband. Of course by this time Shannon knew who was calling, so she said, “Hello Delilah…or did you want me to call you Darby?”
“Look wiseacre…everyone calls me Delilah now and I’m very comfortable with that moniker. So let’s just leave it at that, Little Flower.
“But the reason I called is because after Johnny the Fourth’s passing, I found the keys to a few of his safe deposit boxes in Flandreau and Sioux Falls.”
“Did you open any of them, Delilah?” asked Shannon.
“Oh, certainly. There were scads of one hundred dollar bills and a big insurance policy in my favor.”
“That reminds me. Are you going to preserve you husband’s fifteen incher in formaldehyde like they did with John Dillinger?”
“Now that’s sick. What the Devil is wrong with you? I raised you better that that!” said Delilah as Shannon snickered and glanced at Sean who was smiling now, too.
“Now if your mind is out of the gutter,” Delilah continued, “I found something interesting about when he was out west. I found this diary-like manuscript. Pages and pages of information, even from the day he left for Hollywoodland… by train.”
“Well, at least he traveled in style!” said Shannon.
“Well, not really. More like a bum in a boxcar; he arrived out there with ratty looking clothes and very little money.
