Biography: 

Despite his name, "Uncle Bud" is a "small bullet-headed boy of five or six" (250), "with freckles like splotches of huge summer rain on a sidewalk" (251). He is related somehow to Miss Myrtle, though he is only staying with her temporarily, and will soon "go back home" (252) to "a Arkansaw farm" (251) - perhaps the same Arkansas orphanage where the four children whom Reba is supporting live. He is adept at "snitching beer" (253); after he breaks into the icebox and drinks a whole bottle, he brings Chapter 25 to a close by throwing up.
