“I found your self-publishing establishment a positive experience. You have a great array of choices before, during, and after. And I wish to thank all concerned from the bottom of my heart. I have already recommended your service to several other authors. There is a load of other operations out there and every one seems to offer the best deal. Your operation has the best deal for my concern.”
While John A. Hopkins was tasked with security in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, The Bacon Lettuce and Tomato Ministry came to life for author John A. Hopkins. Seeing all the suffering and confusion taking place, he thought, What if everyone lived in a place where they could count on their neighbors and the local government at all times, no matter what? And so Bucksburg became the small town where everyone wants to live and be accepted by their neighbors as friends and family.
Meet John T. and Buck, the guardian angels of this delightful little community. John T. is the sheriff, mayor, and county judge, and Buck is the preacher of the BLT Ministry. (But watch out for Buck…he can sell ice to Eskimos in the middle of a blizzard.) Buck’s best friend John T. does his best to deal with all the problems that come up in the normal dealings of a small town, including a crisis that overshadows all concerned. But everything always works itself out in Bucksburg, as you will see. You’ll meet Lenard and Dewayne, who just can’t stay out of trouble. And Ms. Megan, a former stripper who won a state lottery. Bob has a brain injury and works everywhere in town depending on who he thinks he is working for on the day he shows up. And don’t forget about Larry, who lives in a Dumpster and rides a mini-bike. Don’t worry if you are a little different. You’ll be accepted in Bucksburg, Mississippi, as long as you accept everyone else. It’s just the way it is. No matter how far off the beaten path you’ve walked, you’ll be warmly welcomed in this small town, where everyone takes care of each other and “normal” is just out of the question.
