Smucky the Cat, He was Obediant

One small Maine town. One big rambling house near a two-lane highway. One family with small children and a cat. An occasional speeding big truck. One Micmac burial ground. Possible Wendigo. St. Elmo’s fire. Seductive promises. Ungodly temptations. Bad synergy.

For Kirby McCauly
Louis Creed, who had lost his father at three and who had never known a grandfather, never expected to find a father as he entered his middle age, but that was exactly what happened...although he called this man a friend, as a grown man must do when he finds the man who should have been his father relatively late in life.
