    I have travelled around a good bit thanks to military, and other projects over the years. After my Dad passed away, I decided I wanted a warmer climate other than Indiana, so I set out for a place I had been stationed. I ended up in Johnson City, Tx. with some of my kin. I got a job in Austin in an Autobody Shop, and pretty much enjoyed it. The shop foreman at the dealership had an alcohol problem, and lost his job. He and his family had become close friends with mine. About a year later, he came to me, and asked me to help him with a job. He was going to re-open an old shop, and needed a bodyman. I said I would help, but did not realize it was almost 100 miles away!! I went to Hearne with him, to look things over, and figured I could help out for 6 weeks or so. I needed a place to live during the week, and drove back to Austin on the weekends. He took me to and "old friend" of his, and tried to introduce me. Unfortunately, I usually have long hair, and a LARGE beard. The "old friend" looked up, and said "I don't rent to no damned Hippie's, get him out of here." I was ready to leave, but Joe tried to stay. I walked to the car, and waited. He came out, and apologized, and I told him it was OK. A couple of days later, I had a message in the office to go visit the "old friend", as he might have something for me... OK, maybe this ain't so good... I went to visit, and had a good talk. The "old friend" was a local J.P., and had been many years. I found he was also a Mason. He had Blonde hair that was a bit below his ears, which seemed odd. After we talked, and he found out a bit about me, and my past, we started a friendship that lasted some 20+ years. A while later, we became partners in a bodyshop, and I also worked EMS for him. When folks would come by to visit, he always introduced me as his "Resident Hippie", and the name Hippie has stuck. It's been almost 30 years now. I wish I had "walked through the door" many years earlier, so he could be there for it, but we lost him in 2003. Some on this board may know him, especially those who have been around for a while, the name of the "old friend", and Brother is Jack Allen Mathews. If you ever met him, you would always remember him. Now once a year, we raise money for the Relay For Life, and the folks scalp and shave me. It's usually good for $1000.00 or so. I donate the hair afterwards, so a child can have a hairpiece. As I get older, it takes a little longer for the hair to re-grow. It takes right at a year for me to get a good 12" beard, and hair length.... Oh, and it's grey as well :( But if you come to Hearne, Franklin, or Calvert, ask for Hippie, otherwise most won't know who you are looking for...:)

    Chupa = C Cabra = Goat. You can ride em' or you can eat em' :) I've done both.

    I've used the nick on several forums over the years. I used to live down the street from a place called Chupacabras in Dallas that made a mean Cavrito and a pretty tasty Lengua torta. It had a cartoon of a silly alien goatsucker on it's sign. :)

    In a time long ago, a baby boy was almost born in Pine Island, Texas. A young couple named Wheeler and Lucille, lived in a small house on the western edge of Pine Island. On March 30, 1928 they moved to a house in Hempstead. The next day, March 31, 1928, their new son was born.

    When Wheeler came home from work the next day, Lucille informed him that she had named the son Wheeler Neil Junior. Wheeler quickly informed her that he had promised his employer, Johnny McDade that the new son would be named John after him. So I became John Wheeler Neil.

    In a place far away, about the same time, on May 2, 1928 a cartoonist named Scancarell introduced a new character to his popular comic strip, "Gasoline Alley." The new character, named Corky, was the first child and son of Walt and Phyllis Wallet, the stars of the strip at that time. They did already have an adopted son named Skeezix he was left on Walt's doorstep in a basket in February of 1921.

    Baby Corky's most recognizable features were a long gown that covered his feet and a cowlick in the front of his hair. On the spur of the moment, one morning, mother decided that we should drive down to Pine Island to visit her mother. When she carried me into the house in my long gown with my cowlick sticking up, my uncle "Buster" looked up and said, "That's Corky." From that day on, I have been know as and called Corky by almost everyone in Waller County. Now, 81 years later, I'm Old Corky.
