The New Life Is An Uncomfortable Fit (at first)


YOU SEE - we are like Mark Twains Huckleberry Finn - the young and wild hillbilly boy – who the widow Douglas took into her home and tried to civilize… Got him to bath, dressed him in nice clothes, sent him to school… Huck can’t take it – so he takes off. Checkout what he says Tom sawyer about life with widow Douglas…


“I’ve tried it and it don’t work Tom. It ain’t for me; I ain’t used to it. The widers’ been good to me and friendly; but I can’t stand them ways… I got to got o church and sweat and sweat – I got to talk to so nice it wasn’t comfortable – I’d go up to the attic and rip out awhile – every day just to get a taste in my mouth, or I’d ‘a’ died, Tom. The widder wouldn’t let me smoke; she wouldn’t let me yell, she wouldn’t let me gape, nor stretch, nor scratch before folks.. And dad fetch it, she prayed all the time! I never seen such a woman! I had to shove Tom – I just had to.”



I don’t work – it ain’t for me… LISTEN – this new life is an uncomfortable fit at first
