i first met william t inscoe aka (pete) probably in the mid nineties while we were both working at eastman.i have many good memories of my 20 some year friendship with pete.he liked to read western books and we began swapping books and spent 20 some years riding horses,hunting and fishing together.i bought some walking horses and the adventures began.neither one of us knew how to shoe a horse but we were hard headed and determined to learn.we would spend all day shoeing a couple of horses just so we could ride for a couple of days before they came off again.we finally got to where they would stay on pretty good.another time we built a barn together when my son was around 15.he would always say it must be dinner time because nathans missing.we would find him sitting under the steering wheel waiting to drive us to the restaurant for lunch.pete must have had nine lives because while building that barn he slid from the top roof onto the lower roof and almost slid off the lower roof onto the ground before getting stopped,he also hit himself in the head with a hammer and stepped on a board with a nail in it sticking up through his foot.i had to stomp on the board to get it out of his foot.another memory was him fishing at my pond and he caught a snapping turtle and when he got it in i shot it with my pistol and he said i believe i can get that hook out .i hollered no pete but he went ahead an reach down an the turtle grabbed his finger and bit a chunk out of it.my grandaughter keeley was 4 or 5 at the time and she took off running toward the house and pete thought it had scared her but in just a minute here she came with some bandaids.pete never forgot that and he would mention it every now an then.pete loved my kids an grandkids he would always joke with me and say i raised nathan and you raised amanda.pete was a kind and respectful man that would never say anything out of the way while ladies or children were around.we were always trying to play tricks on each other .
