Leavin' Like a Hillbilly

Y'all come back now, y'hear!?!

I got a little taste of the Beverly Hillbillies' lifestyle yesterday when my family came to town to pack up my car and all my belongings for the move from Enid to Albuquerque. Little did I know that my belongings would stack way up to the high heavens on the back of my dad's Dodge Ram, reminiscent of the Clampett's 1921 Oldsmobile 46 Roadster rigged up with granny's rocking chair hoisted up top.

It was pretty tough to say goodbye to Enid and all of the places and people I people I love, even if I hid it in front of my friends. It's always tough to stand in the middle of any empty room in a house that was home for the last year.

Even as I get ready to hit the second stretch of I-40 from Amarillo to Albuquerque this morning, I'll still remember all the years of Oklahoman hospitality I experienced in Enid and the friendships I developed that will last a lifetime.

Well now it's time to say goodbye to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back again to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality
