How I fell inta the spring, fresh outta luck.... (fer the spring fresh contest - best as ah kin rekolekt it)

It was a foggy nite in Frog Bottom Holler.  I was cleaning my nails by the fire with my buck nife, (makin my toes mitely cold), griping about mama's mouseleg pie.... "Mawmaw, ya'll didn't make enuf agin."

 "Sweet Potata Sal" said Mawmaw.... "Get the stink out of yer britches, an git a move on honey chile..  go mekk yerself useful." (I felt the ghost of Michael Thornton in the room... but I digress...)

So I grabbed up my huntin gun, Miss Rowdybuck, woke up 'ol Geezergirl (who wuz lickin her... well never you mind), and headed off into the nite, looking fer sompun fer dinner.

Raccoon in treeWe got two miles from home, when ‘ol Geezergirl spotted a ‘coon.  "OOOWWWLLLLLLL...." And she wuz off on the chase. Over hill, under dale, thru the crik, down the gulley, past old lady Washman's londry hangin on the line..... (I only grabbed one pair of unnerware... I was due fer a change... it HAD been a year)

"I'm comin, Geezergirl.....folla that ‘coon.

Geezy's howlin seemed to stay put fur a minute.  Had she treed the coon?  As I got near, I could see it... little ringtailed stripes hiding on a limb... eyes as big as a harvest moon.  Shakin jest a tad.... OK a lot.

As I stood there ponderin how to get that raccoon out of the tree, Geezy spun around in her eggsitmunt, and knocked me flat on the ground... well not ON the ground, cuz ther was a spring coming out of the ground - rite there... and I was IN it. "Geez, now what do I do?".. (as if Geezy could talk... sometimes I'm dummer then a fence post!)

2 raccoons in a tree

 

I must uh broke my head or sumptin... cause I was seeing two coons up in that tree, cept when I closed 1 eye.  I think I wuz up the crik without a paddel, if ya know what I mean!

"Geezy...ya gotta go git help, girl." If that didn't work, I didn't know what to do, cause I was broke-headed in the spring, fresh outta idears..... "Run, Geezy, Run"
