Cranks My Tractor

Mrs. Reese was pregnant, he brought a frog home in a paper bag and opened the bag and showed it to her.  Soon after, she lost the baby.  It was heartbreaking, but he really thought “the frog scared the baby out of her.”  Some folks might call that simple-minded.

Mrs. Reese passed away and without her guidance and friendship, he didn’t last very long afterwards.

I have the short-legged chairs, the memories and I don’t care what was in the Dixie Cups.

Simple people make the best friends.
