Description

I call these things a "belt assembly." One of them here is made out of this old chain and a money purse, with iron and rubber. It has its special time, too. I hang the wearing things on the trees. I got my reasons why I do things but I don't always talk about it. I got hats hanging, hats I have made, what I call a "scat." A scat is something that ain't worth much of nothing, make you look ugly or funny. That belt I'm wearing look like the devil. I ain't made it for no good looks, noway. The devil come and claim his own.
