Walkin'

Jock strap cups

Dan-the-one-eyed-mule showed up in style at our acreage, standing tall and placid in the back of an old Chevy pickup.
At the wheel was Gale, a 78-year old retired farmer fairly well known in the area for his quick wit and friendly nature. Locals will know where he lives even if they don’t know him personally when I describe his house. It’s the one with a fire hydrant and a tree stump standing about 10 feet apart in the front yard. A sign by the hydrant reads “city dogs” and the one by the stump, “country dogs.”

Exorcising the incubus
