But i love ya dad.
My grandfather, Oscar Jesse Lee Wells, did not like having such a long name, so he shortened to O.L. Wells. When they moved to Oklahoma, he spent all day handpainting his name on the mailbox. He was very meticulous and everything had to be done just right.
After he was finished, he stood back and admired his handiwork. There on the silver mailbox were bright white letters: O L WELLS
The next day when he went to get his mail, the school children had made a slight adjustment to his name. His mailbox now read: OIL WELLS.
