1: Just an Ordinary Day
story took place in the city of Arlen, Texas. In a suburban
neighborhood lived four somewhat redneck friends. Their names were
Hank Hill, Bill Dauterive, Dale Gribble, and Boomhauer.
Hill was the assistant manager at a propane store called Strickland
Propane. Hank was tall and had a good, solid build. He had brown
hair, and he wore glasses with thick, square rims. Most of the time,
Hank wore a white shirt and blue jeans. When Hank was not at work,
he would often spend time in a place known as the alley. This was a
place in front of the fence that defined Hanks front yard. He
would spend time with Dale, Bill, and Boomhauer in the alley. They
would stand around and talk about life as they sipped beers. Hank
also had a very nice family. His wife was named Peggy, and she had
puffy brown hair and wore glasses somewhat similar to Hanks,
although the rims were not as thick. Peggy was a substitute teacher
for Tom Landry Middle School, and she knew a little bit of Spanish.
Hank had a twelve-year-old son named Bobby. Bobby was a little short
and big-boned, and he had short, reddish-blonde hair. Bobby could be
quite a handful at times, but Hank was still proud of his son. In
addition, Hanks niece named Luanne Platter often lived with the
Hills while she went to beauty school.
