KaBoooom!!! PDF Print E-mail

By Thom Alwell

The loudest firework we can hear on Independance day.

A tribute to our good friend, Ruth Farmer!  In May, she celebrated her 100th birthday! KaBoooom!!!

A year before that I asked her daughter, “Hey Jill, where’s Ruth?” “Went to Michigan to visit family.” Jill said.  

“How’d she get there?”

“Drove her car.”

“Who went with her?” I asked.


“What???  Anybody else know about this????”

“She told me ... she says everybody else worries too much.”

A couple of years before this, Ruth hired me to do some work at her house for the enormous salary of ten bucks an hour.  Ruth snickered walking away, “If he takes too damn long, I’ll be in the Poorhouse!”

So after working steadily for a couple of hours, I climbed back up the hill, sweating and catching my breath, I took a little break and sat on a rock in her driveway. That moment I saw a wheelbarrow being pushed in my direction―full enough I couldn’t see who was pushing it―and it stopped right near me.  It was Ruth with her work gloves filthy already; she gave me a stern look in the eye, saying, authoritatively, but kindly,”You think I’m payin you to sit on your ass, you got another think comin!  Back in my day―workin for a buck and a half an hour―we drove Cadillacs!”  I stood up,”You need some help taking that the rest of the way??”

Shaking her head with a smile, Ruth says, “Get back to Work!”

I heard her mumbling as she walked away with the mountain in her wheelbarrow, “I knew he couldn’t keep up with me!!”

God Bless you Ruth, and we all love you!!!

To one of the youngest women I have met ... after her hundredth birthday!
