are ripe the adults knock them off the trees with long poles The children gather the fallen ones from the ground The nuts not intended for commercial use are taken to the pecan cracker There in the small white building the pecans are dumped into the funnel like tops of machinesOne by one the hard pecans fall into moving gears The top set of gears cracks open the largest pecans Smaller pecans fall through untouched to another set of gears These mesh closer and crack apart the smaller pecans Still some escape and fall again to another set of gears These gears mesh tighter still like steel

about people the county seat of Pontotoc County ninety miles southeast of Oklahoma City Well known to crossword puzzle addicts city in Oklahoma three letters it was named after a dark haired girl Ada

crosswise in front of the store near an ice machineLenny Timmons tall and slim with a neatly trimmed dark beard got out of the car and walked toward the store His brother remained in the car Gene Whelchel in his truck puffed on a cigarette As Timmons entered the store he passed in the double doorway a young couple who were leaving The woman came out first the man right behind herDavid Timmons waiting in the car saw the couple emerge from the store and walk toward the pickup He noticed the mans arm around the woman s waist Gene Whelchel also glanced their way They seemed to him like a pair of young lovers The couple walked to the passenger side of the truck The young man opened the door The woman climbed in and then the man beside her After a few seconds the engine started and the pickup drove off Gene Whelchel puffed on his cigarette David Timmons waitedThe inside of the store was bright to his eyes as Lenny Timmons entered The shelves lined up parallel to the entrance were stacked with candy bars paper products cold remedies tampons In the glass enclosed refrigerators were milk soda pop juice Timmons needing only change saw the cash register and the checkout counter to his left He approached the counter and waite.
