The last few days I was visiting an old friend in his new single wide trailer (well,,, new for him, it's a 1986 model.) I and other old friends got together to help pull the wheels off his new house.

We come from all over, Hickneyville, Polk County, Fairsmell Fl, all over. Old friends who grew up together and were so close, one even married his own sister.

Polk County is a great place to raise kids. Come Halloween, you just got to put shoes on them and they tricker treat as "city slickers"

We talk of failed investments, the earthworm farm (they all ran off during a big rain), the mink ranch (turned out to be two males that fought like hell), the "sell your wife's hair" cartel (which went over real bad the next morning after the midnight harvest), the "paint your own sign" franchise and the "Christmas Present Opening Service" for rich people. (guess they were mostly out of town)

All in all, we decided that as long as we could still buy name brand beer, we was better off than many.

It was a few good days of "should'a, could'a, might'a and talk'n about tomorrow. Sometimes the best moments in life to reminisce about are those that never happened.

But, all good things must come to an end, and once the refrigerator in the backyard ran out of beer, we knew it was time to fold up the chairs, hang up the horseshoes, hose down the kids, collect the empties and put some air in the cars tires before hitting the road.
