An Evening with the Kimball'sby C. D. King
On the evening of their 75th
Lester and Mildred Kimball, born on the same day in rural Texas, grew up together and married right after high school. Mildred inherited the family farm, where they have lived for 57 years. They have the language and mannerisms of our older rural citizens. A true joy in their lives is the vocal bantering that takes place between them.
On the evening of their 75th birthday, their normally peaceful life is shattered by the invasion of two desperate and dangerous escaped killers. Jesse and Tommy, with several murders to their combined credit, threaten the old couple. Citizens who encountered these two convicts face-to-face have been brutally slain. It appears that this frail couple is destined to meet the same fate. It turns out, however, that this old couple takes a lot of effort to subdue. The Kimball's are not your average old couple. But, you must read their fascinating story to learn of their fate. This story is one of humor, murder most foul, and an exciting and unusual ending.
