Friends, you know how some people go looking for trouble? Well I’ve never had to go far! I could always just find one of my brothers and trouble would show up pretty quick!

The other day, I went down to Turner Hollow to check on John Barry. I found him outside already, sitting on the porch. We decided to sit there for a bit.

We were just enjoying the sun, when out of the blue he says, “I need me a woman! Sure would like to find one that wears them high heeled shoes!”


“You know them long pointed shoes like them women wear on the TV? I looked ’em up on the computer they call em STILETTOS! You have to be careful on the computer; it shows more than their shoes! But they make them shoes with like a nine inch heel! Yep, I need me a woman that wears them shoes!”

Now that was a lot more than I needed to know, or even wanted to know. But I had to say something, so I just said, “Yes I guess you do! Sure would be nice to have someone to cook for you! And clean up after you!”

He said, “What are you talking bout?”

I said, “You just said you needed a woman; I was just going along with you. You started it!”

He said, “Naw, I was just out there working in the garden, getting ready to plant. That ground is hard; can’t hardly poke a hole in it! So I got to thinking, if I had me a women that wears them high heeled shoes, she could just walk down that row, real straight, and I could just drop the seed…”

And life goes on, on Thompson Hill.
