George Rice: Mr. Arnold Coomer really loved pawpaws

Memories of Coomer's Store
George Rice writes:
I bought a Homko riding lawn mower probably in the late 70's. It was a friction drive with handle bars steering system. I'm pretty sure that I also bought a chain saw from him. One of the outstanding things that I remember about him was his love for paw paws. He told me that he could eat a dozen any day. --George Rice
