A Christmas Memory


“I simply do not admire a man who puts up a barbed wire fence.”

‘Sook’, in “A Christmas Memory”, by Truman Capote

This is one of my very favorite Christmas stories, and the character, “Sook” is someone I feel very close to.  The above quote is spoken as Sook and Buddy go to gather fallen pecans for the fruitcakes they will bake—it’s the only ‘free’ ingredient on their list—and they have to pass through the posted and barbed wire fence of a not-so-goodhearted man’s property.  I watch this movie (purchased through Amazon) every year…hope you enjoy the brief clip ♥Stella
