Rube’s Ramblins’ (A guest Post)
Greetings Friends. I have a guest contributor to the blog today. You’ve met Rube in an earlier post. He will be doing guest posts on this blog from time to time. Rube is quite interesting as you may have noted when he told you about Gertrude, his 1941 Black Ford pickup truck. If you’re just tuning in and missed that blog, back up a couple of posts and read about him and Gertrude. So, without further ado, I’ll turn the remainder of this post over to Rube.
Howdy folks. This here’s Rube , (Will’s friend) talkin’ back at ya, agin. Remember them days when cokes were a nickel and movie tickets were a dime? Those lazy hazy summer days of the 1940s were purty good years. We kids left the house early in the mornin’ with a lunch in hand and didn’t git back home ’til dark an’ no one worried a whittle ’bout us. That’s just the way life was in them days. I remember some of the times when I used to go fishin’ with Will and his cousins in the irrigation canal out on the edge of town. We’d lay on the canal bank lookin’ up at the clouds tryin’ ta make out differnt images while our lines floated in the slow movin’ water of the canal waiting for a carp to grab at the hook; or if we got tired of that, we’d jump in for a dip in the cool water. He told me about one the times when him an’ his cousin Mont went fishin’ an’ almost broke one of Mont’s Daddy’s best fishin’ poles. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a book o’ stories tellin’ of some those adventures? Well, folks, there is. Buddy…His Trials and Treasures. Check it out in the upper right corner of Will’s home page and an’ he’ll see that ya git a copy of his book as a free gift.
