take me home country roads

‘Marry Arthur!’ they said!  ‘He’ll take you places you’ve never been!’ they said!” was all Gladys could pronounce.

“I know. I know.” her husband timidly replied.

“I love you, honey, ” she reminded him, “But Tucumcari, New Mexico. population forty- su’um?  For our honeymoon?!”

“On the bright side,” he reasoned, “It’s one of those quaint places where everyone’s named after someone in the Bible. Isn’t that so nice?”

“My big fear is,” she said, “We may be stuck here in big trouble. Remember Lot’s wife?”

    Hahahaha! Yes, very important to remember that point.
