Hickory Lee Adams
Last night a new character introduced himself to me, Hickory Lee Adams, an Attorney-at-Law. I had no say in the matter really, he just appeared, as future best friends often do.
In his 50’s Hickory Lee has practiced law in the same small town of Apple Hill, Tennessee, (population 5,000) all his life.
Divorced he is having an affair with his ex wife, Louisa, (Lulu), who has remarried. He is also seeing a woman who is in her late 30’s, Marguerite Collins, Judge Marguerite Collins, the daughter of the local preacher.
Hickory Lee is forever filing cases and motions not at the eleventh hour, but at the very last minute, sometimes having to run from his office in the square to the court house on the other side just before 4 p.m.
