Author's Note: I love The Beverly Hillbillies, but I abhor murdering (hunting). Finally found a way to explain the beginning to my liking.
The sun was shining, and the birds were singing as Jed Clampett shot up the sky. He lowered his pistol as the food fell to the ground. No one might be able to eat his daughter's food, but Elly May's biscuits sure made for good target practice. He paused a moment to admire the land. These were his woods; he knew every spot and every animal in the forest. Some things would never change, he thought, beaming, but then as he shot another biscuit, a massive, black cloud exploded and, in that moment, everything changed for Jed and his family.
