    "Uncle Slim" by Mr. Hooper 2015
    My Uncle Slim is known for making outrageous claims. He told me once that he rode on a mockingbird’s back clear down to Cross Plains and hitched a ride with a crow to get back home. He would sometimes tell people that he liked to hunt bear with nothing more than a hickory switch. He had some long rambling story about Jesse James that he liked to tell every Thanksgiving, but it is far too convoluted and ridiculous for me to recall right now. He swore that he invented cowboy boots, though he never wore cowboy boots, nor did he ever own a pair as far I could tell. If there were such a thing as “The Liars Hall of Fame”, Uncle Slim would be a chartered member.
