"Has you ever seen such a gorgeous day, Belle?"
Why good mornin' to you Spencer, ain't seen ya' in a coon's age.
Whar' ya been?
Spencer Freemont took a wee step inside the gate and looked around.
"Is Uncle heah Belle?"
Shure he is, darlin'....go on round back an' holler at him.
"Naw naw, I was thinkin' to speak wif' you Belle, but uh...uh...jes' wanna be proper- like,
I mean, iffin' you was alone heah.'
I chuckled, "Oh I see--youse got a new lady friend, and she be the jealous sort, huh?"
Spencer picked at the spent pansy blooms. "Yeah, reckon she is. Jealous as a hell-cat."
He was quiet so I waited to see what was on his mind.
"See, Belle, I wanted to ask ya' to tone down what youse sayin' in yore backporch blog.
Thang is, I reads it ,and Lulu comes up beside me and reads over mah shoulder.
We done had an episode last \evenin' over yore Obama post. She is a Dimmi-crat, see?"
Spencer, does you really wanna torment yoreself wif' a Dimmi?
"She's real purty, she likes my guinea pigs, she doan mind goin' to the Bass Outdoor World
fer Friday night seminars on fly fishin'....
Spencer, why date them desperate types? Youse good enough to get a girl who expects to go to dinner on Friday evening.
"Anyway, I wanted to bring her by to meet ya', but now she say she woan come. She say youse a
bigoted ole bat. I told her that ain't it, but she say no matter how good your blackberry cobbler is,
she woan come. She jes' doan like folks like us --I mean, except fer me. I tried to get her to jes' stroll
by and exchange a word or two wif' ya...she say, 'why bother, no matter what, I ain't gonna like her'....
sorry to say this, Miss Belle.
Well, that's open minded of her, Spencer.
"Lulu, thinks it's folks like you who cause global warmin' and ya' doan drive no hybrid or nuthin'...."
I sent him on in the house to get some cobbler and coffee wif' Uncle. Ain't no point in tellin' Spencer
that the only "global warmin" is democrats in heat like Clinton and Spitzer.
I reckon I best git over to the grocery--rice prices have doubled since January, an' yesterday rice prices on the world market went up 30 %. Food inflation: Bio-fuels uses up food growin' land and Vietnam, India, Cambodia and Egypt had a panic and shut down exports when Indonesia tried to place a large tonnage order fer rice. After all, folks was in the streets --not race riots, but rice riots.
So I'se off to buy a year's worth of rice--ain't gonna pay 3.77 a pound fer rice like we pays fer gas at the pump.
