It’s official –
I’ve lost my country card.
When I saw the rows and rows of corn that line the highway in my hometown in Kentucky — right next to my brother’s driveway, in fact — I thought the golden tassels against the bright blue sky were evidence of a great harvest in the making.
But my brothers quickly corrected me — the heat has ruined the crop. The tassels have appeared too soon on stalks with little or no ears. The farmers will take a loss.
And I couldn’t tell the difference.
Oh well, the locals here would need my help on the subway…so I guess that evens things out.
