Seashells, Gator Bones,
and the Church of Everlasting Liability
In the 1930s, the fictional town of Toad Springs, Florida was filled with the adventures and daily whatnots of down-to-earth, worthy folk such as Flavey Stroudamore, owner of Stroudamore’s Rare Reptile Ranch, with a three-legged gator named Precious - who just happened to have a birthmark of Jesus on his side.
Joining Flavey are Buck Blander, pastor of the Church of Everlasting Liability, who honed his preaching skills in prison, but doesn’t tell his parishioners, and Sweetie Mooney, whose attempts to run a beauty shop in her aunt’s home fail after tragedies with head lice and henna hair dye.
