Uncle Nester is like an old catfish that lives in the Cahaba River and floats by occasionally for a visit. He was raised in Bibb County and seasoned in politics at the J.P. Nix pool room on the court house square. He is or may have been a member of the Masonic Lodge, the Brent Civitan, The Kiwanis Club, the VFW & American Legion Post and the Meigs Drug Store coffee klatch. He attends Friday night antique auctions at Jemison and Maplesville and trades pocket knives on Saturday mornings at Bibb Supply. An astute political observer he is related to all of the gentrified families of Bibb County and has impeccable sources of reliable information. To protect his family reputation he chooses to communicate and write from an undisclosed location.
