Mine and Gus's maternal

Mountain Eagle, 1987.
Verdie Noblett of Redmill thumbs through her grandson's war novel.
"He was a pretty nice
kid. Of course, I knew way back he would be a writer. He always
loved to write. I'm proud of Gus--he's made a wonderful man of himself,"
Mrs. Noblett said . . .
Author Has Jasper Links," the Daily Mountain Eagle, 1987
Beyond the house, on the
slope, Old Ma, wearing a faded blue sunbonnet, is working in her vegetable
garden repairing a scarecrow made of gleaming aluminum pie pans and large
clear-plastic Pepsi jugs . . .
Mrs. Noblett, who keeps
an autographed copy of The Short-Timers in the kitchen of her modest,
green frame home, said she didn't
know Kubrick, but two of her nine daughters went to see the film and told
her all about it.
"I don't know how he
ever got that movie together. Of course there's a lot of words in
there that aren't too nice. But they understood they weren't going
to a religious movie when they went. They were going to a war movie."
I say, "I've missed
you, Old Ma. Been doing any fishing?"
