Product Description

ARKANSAS HILLBILLY ADDING MACHINE, READ DESCRIPTION
THIS IS AN ARKANSAS HILLBILLY ADDING MACHINE. IT COUNTS FROM 22 TO 25. THIS MACHINE TEACHES BY ASSOCIATION. SOME OF US CARRIED OUR 22 RIFLE ON THE THREE MILE WALK TO CATCH THE SCHOOL BUS AND LEFT IT BEHIND OUR FAVORITE TREE. WE WERE EXPECTED TO PROVIDE GAME ON OUR WALK BACK TO THE HOUSE AFTER SCHOOL. IN SEASON WE WOULD PICK GOOD OLE POLK SALAD UM! UM! WHAT A MEAL! SQUIRREL OR RABBIT TOPPED OFF WITH POLK SALAD AND WILD ONION. MY SISTER'S NAME WAS POLK SALAD ANNIE. SHE WAS BETTER AT PICKING POLK SALAD THAN ME. AFTER SUPPER ME AND DAD WOULD RELAX WITH OUR CHOICE OF EITHER A SMOKE OF RABBIT TOBACCO OR CHEW OF TREE WAX.

I WAS BORN IN THE OZARK MOUNTAINS ON RED LICK RIDGE. WHEN I WAS BORN MY GRANDFATHER TOLD MY MOTHER MY EARS WERE SO LARGE HE WOULD HAVE TO WAIT A WHILE TO SEE IF I WAS GOING TO WALK UPRIGHT OR FLY LIKE A BIRD. ALSO HE SAID I WAS AN UGLY BABY. WHEN I WAS OLD ENOUGH TO UNDERSTAND MY MOTHER TOLD ME WHAT MY GRANDFATHER SAID ABOUT ME. I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING AN INFERIORITY COMPLEX ALL MY LIFE. IT WAS MY GRANDFATHER'S FAULT. ALTHOUGH THE GIRLS TOLD ME I WAS HANDSOME WHEN I REACHED MY TEEN YEARS WHEN I LOOKED IN THE MIRROR I WOULD SEE ONLY MY BIG EARS.

WE DIDN'T HAVE BETTER UNTIL WE MOVED OUT OF THE OZARK MOUNTAINS TO SOUTH ARKANSAS. IN THE LOW LANDS WE COULD HAVE ALLIGATOR STEW AND ARMADILLO SOUP UM! UM!. THE ONE THING I ALWAYS WANTED TO EAT WAS HUMMING BIRD WINGS ON TOAST BUT DIDN'T HAVE A TOASTER. WE EVEN HAD A COUNTRY STORE WERE WE COULD TRADE A HEN HOUSE EGG FOR A PIECE OF BUBBLE GUM AND A COKE COLA. WE WERE ABLE TO GO TO SCHOOL BARE FOOT. WHAT A SHOCK I GOT WHEN I STARTED TO COLLEGE AND FOUND OUT I HAD TO WEAR SHOES. SHOES TO ME WAS LIKE A CORSET TO MY SISTER. IT KEPT EVERYTHING INSIDE AND I COULD HARDLY BREATH. SOMETIMES MY FEET WOULD SMELL LIKE THE SKUNK THAT LIVED UNDER OUR FRONT PORCH. FINDING SHOES TO FIT ME BY THIS TIME WAS DIFFICULT AS MY FEET OVER THE YEARS HAD SPREAD ALL OVER THE PLACE.

WHEN I WAS NINE YEARS OLD I WOULD START EARLY SATURDAY MORNING ON MY BIKE TO THE "BIG CITY" TO MEET MY GIRLFRIEND. TWENTY CENTS WOULD GET US BOTH IN TO SEE "HOP-A-LONG" SHOOT A FEW BAD GUYS. MY GIRL AND I WOULD HOLD HANDS IN THE DARK! I WAS SO YOUNG IT WAS SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE I UNDERSTOOD WHY THE PALM OF MY HANDS SWEAT ALL THAT TIME. SOMETHING WAS CAUSING THE SWEATING BUT WHILE LIKING IT I JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHY.

THIS ITEM IS A MUST FOR TO THE COIN COLLECTOR WHO NEEDS WHEAT PENNIES DATED 1923-1924 AND 1925. WHAT MORE CAN I SAY EXCEPT THE 22 BULLET IS A HARMLESS BLANK.
