Hugh Monselle O'Brien, my father, retired from peanut farming and cattle ranching in early 2001 just shy of his eighty-eighth birthday.  In his spare time during the past several years, he has written many stories for his local newspaper, The Comanche Chief, The MESSENGER magazine published in DeLeon, TX, and other local publications.  This web site is a collection of some of these stories.   Enjoy!

Dad passed away on July 3, 2008.  He is missed but he lives on in our hearts and in his stories.
