Known as "Double A," Arthur was the family bootlegger. He always said that liquid corn was more profitable. His biggest market was to sell to the county officials in both Crosby and Lubbock. However the Sheriff was not a customer.

And he was a story-teller. Two such tales that survive are:

Once while his wife Lena was pickling cucumbers she looked out the window and saw the sheriff driving up the long road to the to the house. Her pickles were on one side of the kitchen and AA's liquid corn was on the other. He hurriedly inserted her pickles into his jars of moonshine, so when the sheriff came into the house all he saw was jars of pickles. AA gave him one of his jars and sent him on his was. He later asked the sheriff if he enjoyed those pickles.

Another time the sheriff and deputy arrived for a surprise inspection. AA asked to see the warrant for the search. The sheriff drove back to town leaving the deputy to make sure AA didn't remove anything from the house. AA was smart: he went back into the house and poured kerosene all over and lit it. He returned to the porch and waited for the house to burn. When the sheriff arrived the liquid corn was gone, so was the house. AA loved this one the most. He rebuilt the house and continued his family business.
