The Hump Bump Reigns When last night's soiree was just a memory I tried to remember the route desparately. Where did I see the hump bump last and am I driving too fast? Riding down highway 33 & 119 near5 all I could think of was staying alive. Approaching the hump bump with terror in my soul my eyes fell on a wide gaping hole. I imagined that night a road in dim light, of a car and a semi appearing to take flight. Immediately my recollection of the site returned the hump bump may split close to the berm. Thoughts of water and mud gushing over the divide, a channel broke thru the road far and wide. Boots full of mud/gritting and gnashing incisors, squads from all over, looking for survivors. Cut off from access to Glenville College and town, a voice from the crowd, called from way down. His words floated up in cool dark night air Now's time to discuss a bridge to heaven knows where. The hump bump lives and has taken on meaning, it rules over all like a Cheshire cat beaming. Sitting and gloating while drivers curse by, the hump bump bloats, watching hubs and wheels fly. Front end damage and frames torn apart, Has insurance co's sniveling and gored to the l~eart. The hump bump's immortalized and that's no lie. Just want to bid the hump bump goodby.

I got a nice call from Eva Collins of Weston. Eva is Rodney Collins's widow. She saidshe has a little basket that Uncle Oat Meadows made for Rodney. Eva said Rodney's mother told her that Uncle Oat used to bring eggs to the store in a basket. Rodney and his sister Wanda were fascinated with the basket, so Uncle Oat made them both. a basket. Eva says the bas- ket is a real treasure. Eva makes lovely quilts and hand quilts them. This winter, she hand quilted a white-on-white quilt with lovely hand stitching all over it.
