One of the few examples of writing excellence on this forum that I've seen so far. Your characters are superb, and your tell your story very visually.

"But the law being the way it is, they hanged him." Wonderful.
A true gem. Great characters, dialogue, and scenery to boot. Excellent.
Cute and fun. This was very interesting to read.
I love your descriptions. My favorite was of his stomach growling "a panther fixin' to jump us." A very well told story!
Great story. The description and characterization is first class.
You are a great story-teller. Slim seemed to lose his dialect as he went on, but may that's because he was getting filled up. :) I think my favorite line was about the parishioners with faces more dour than their clothes. Great job!
Funny......good story telling.
I like your yarn. It is colorful and I can visualize what is going on. Good job. Almost every backwoods community has it's story teller. You and Slim rank up there with the best of em. Thanks.
I can see the whole crew sitting around hanging on every word, just like me!
Absolutely loved the title, and the story was well worth the read. I enjoyed this very much
