What I did on my summer vacation, part 1

Last week Benny and I took the kids on a little road trip to Oklahoma. We wanted to go to Carlsbad Caverns on the way, so we didn’t take the most direct route and wound up on some smaller roads. Good thing we did that too, otherwise we wouldn’t have met Hobo Joe.

Who’s Hobo Joe, you may ask, aside from a fellow with a very aristocratic pinkie finger? I’m not quite sure, to tell you the truth.

What I do know about Hobo Joe is that he has a phi beta kappa key, has good taste in belts,

his shoes have mouths,

and he carries a banana and a harmonica at all times. We also learned that if you say Hobo Joe’s name three times, he waves his magic pinkie in the air

and a rat made out of red wine magically appears on the floor later that night.

Red Wine Rat. Hobo Joe loves a good tongue-twister.
