I must admit that I was taken aback that night at Melvin and Jessie's when I met some of the "neighbors." They were all telling Yankee jokes, all very friendly. I remember one of their best friends introduced himself to me as Woody Guthrie. And sometimes, I must admit, I'm a little naive (LOL!). I thought he was the real Woody Guthrie. He played the guitar and everything!!! What a fun fellow he is! He recently told me that he had three PHDs. Nodding my head and obviously impressed, I said, "Oh. For what?" He responded, "for digging, JP. Everybody needs more than one post hole digger!" Now you know what I'm up against...:)
Since I hardly no where to begin between all of them, let's simply start with Emerson. First of all, don't you just love that name? I do. And, I might add, it suits him. He reminds me of a typical "cowboy" although he doesn't own any horses and heaven only knows if he's ever shoveled manure in his life!! But you know, a big, tall fellow with a deep voice, dark hair, well-tanned in the summer.
I will admit, after meeting him a few times, he now moves over for me! Of course, I had to holler at him for that for that to happen! I really did...shook my finger at him and everything!! LOL! He's a great guy though and now I just hug him to pieces. He's been a real friend and even stops over for an occasional "brewski." This spring I'm giving him a bunch of perennials to plant along his driveway. So, if you're keeping score, mark him as "THE GOOD."
a snake hiding? No thanks...I'll walk."
Snake or no snake, they, too, are "THE GOOD."
