I have Farmer H figured out. I know he tends to tell me the "truth" as HE knows it. Like on our recent trip part-way to Oklahoma to meet The Pony. We passed an old building in our first half hour, along the highway near Newmentia.
"There's where ParkingSpaceStealer's parents were murdered."
"WHAT? I never heard about that!"
"Yep. They found them face down on the floor, shot in the back of the head, execution style. Never found out who did it. Or why. They ran a bar. Drugs was never a big deal back then. So that probably wasn't it."
Monday I mentioned that story to my best ol' ex-teaching buddy Mabel.
"WHAT? Her dad is still alive! And her mom died the year before ParkingSpaceStealer retired."
"I can't wait to present this evidence to Farmer H, and see what excuse he comes up with."
You can never be too sure if what Farmer H is feeding you is actually edible...
