From the Oklahoma redneck welderMoreBig Rockets, Deep Pockets is a fanciful roman a clef ramble through the space age, highlighting some of the characters and adventures that took place not only in space but at suppliers facilities across the nation. From the Oklahoma redneck welder Grady Green, whose competitors believe to be a crafty and devious manipulator but must respect, if not his methods, the results they achieve as president and CEO of Tulsa Fabricators, to Cray Reynolds, young rodeo cowboy and his partner Fess, whom Grady subsidizes illicitly but unknown to them, by misappropriation of government funds. Such activities worry Milli Angeli, Gradys beautiful Girl Friday whose job it is to manage the technical and legal details that Grady chooses to ignore. Millis leisure time activity is membership in an exclusive nudist resort. And Ben Okara, decorated Nisei war veteran, now supervisor of on-site inspection for Space Air Corporation. Avoiding conflict of interest, the friendship between Grady and Ben is an anomaly to say the least. We also meet Hans Frederick, President of Tech Nitro Technology (TNT), Bens closest and most trusted friend. Hans has a capricious side- he is also owner of a bar employing 60 scantily clad girls.
