Hi Y'all I'm Bo Lumpkin and I've been thinkin'.

After old Bodie left the Grab- Sum- Grub Sheriff Rupert P. Rhondo came in. We told the tale that Bodie had told us and he laughed a little and turned real serious.

I reckon all the farmers are havin' a pretty hard time. All this rain has pretty near ruined a lot of the crops".

Everybody around the table was noddin' in agreement and he went on talkin'. " I pulled a feller over on the highway because he was drivin' a little bitty old pickup truck and he had it so loaded down with soy beans the tires were bulgin' and the back bumper was nearly draggin' the ground."

"I asked him if he didn't think he might be a little over loaded." He answered me with the saddest look you ever saw," I guess I ought to be, I've got 50 acres of beans on this here truck."

Yep, times are hard on everybody. One farmer who raises corn told me him and his two sons ate five acres of corn for lunch one day.

I'm Bo Lumpkin and dive been thinking'. People keep talkin' about hard times and I think they might be on their way. Whatchall been thinkin'? Leave me a comment or send me an email to:
