Luther’s handwriting is as wild as the stories in the Wild Man book.

Check out his signature below on the first page of book number one.

.I asked him to “please write neatly” …and he still covered up half the page.

He didn’t have much to say about his poor handwriting, except this anecdote.

He explained, “When we used to buy and sell hogs, one person told me they never knew what their hogs brought until the check was deposited in the bank.”

Eventually, Luther’s brother Buddy had to write all the checks.
