Grab yourself a cup of coffee, slice off a piece of that pound cake and pull up a chair. You are about to visit the small southern town of Mayhaw Crossings, Georgia, and meet the colorful citizens who make this the gossip headquarters of the south. You'll meet Olive Gearhart, the former first lady of Mayhaw Crossings and reigning gossip queen. Her zany sidekicks, include Ingrid Mercer who collects gossip while posted at checkout counter #1 at the local Hoggly Woggly grocery store; Mollie Scoots, Olive's lifelong friend and her first runner up from the gossip circuit and Ella Lou Savin, the current Sheriff's wife who mothers and feeds the community with both tasty food and delicious gossip fit for any hungering palate. There's the level headed, Addie Langley, who seems to always be in the direct path of bodily injury or embarrassment and her sister-in-law, Nettie Cooper, who's nerves are always one thread from being frayed. Many other citizens of Mayhaw Crossings will be identified on these pages as their individual paths cross with our mighty gossip queens. Hold on to your hat and sit a spell; there's no place like Mayhaw Crossings.
