When I was a young boy growing up in South Mobile County along the banks of Fowl River, I met a man named Po. At least that is how my father referred to him.

As an impressionable 8-year-old boy, I only remember an energetic jovial man who had a slight forward crouch when he walked and a baby bald head that my father would occasionally kiss after a few libations.
