Hoosier Daddy

Hoosier Daddy

One night while driving to New York from Indiana, I was detoured through a Corn field in the middle of nowhere. The road got progressively worse until I found myself in a cloud of dust, on some kinda dirt road. Crawling at a snails pace due to the lack of visibility, I made the decision to turn around.

All of a sudden, BAM, my front end vanished in a Huge Mudhole of water. Fortunately the Farmhouse lights were on & the Farmer happened to catch a glimpse of my headlights prior to them vanishing in the Quagmire. As he sauntered over to my wreckage, toothpick protruded proudly from his pragmatic smirk, he engaged:

" Well lookie here. Seems like ye got'cha self in a bit of a bind ya did Mister."

" Yes Sir, I was going real slow & still never saw the hole. If I could impose... to use your telephone... to call a tow truck, I'd be grateful."

" Fine with me, 'cept th' Fillin' station's way over yonder in Wabash; opens at dawn...Mavis, he don't come out at night no more; 'especial for Citislickers. Ain't fond of citislickers."

"Actually I'm not from the City...More like the Suburbs..." Yeah, Anyway. Mute point being Mavis don't come out at night...right"

" I Reckon Me & Betsy 'ill yank 'er outta there for ya Mr. Citislicker." Might save ya coupl'a bucks... Might not. "

" Well that's right kind of ... I mean; I'd be much obliged, sorry for the inconvenience."

" Yeaper, der'nights' ya lucky night Yankee... Me & the misses, we got back from town a might early. Roomatis acting up"

" Betsy; that's the Misses?"

"Betsy's 'ma tractor." Shooting me a look as though it was common knowledge.

Ah; you drive your tractor to town?....Again with the look..." No, of Course not...I... Never mind. I noticed you were outside, you harvest.. your crop at night?"

" Nah; "Hadda put away the Gardenhose. "

John Lennon "Watching the Wheels"

People say I’m crazy doing what I’m doing; Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin. When I say that I’m o.k. well they look at me kind of strange...Surely you’re not happy now you no longer play the game. People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away. Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me. When I tell them that I’m doing fine watching shadows on the wall, Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball. I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and roundI really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go Ah, people asking questions lost in confusion; Well I tell them there’s no problem, only solutions. Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind, I tell them there’s no hurry I’m just sitting here doing time. I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and roundI really love to watch them roll. No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go, I just had to let it go, I just had to let it go
