" As a young teenager, I hung a wood duck on my porch while I ate supper. When I returned to my prize, I discovered the croker sack I had been carrying it in wasn't as strong as I had thought, and my duck was caught again, this time in the midst of an escape. "

This incorporated Grainger's first use of tupelo wood, seen here as the torn sack material. If you click on the "view detail" button on the right, you can see a closeup of the frayed croker sack.
