Burford Surveys His Crops, acrylic on linen, 22 x 28
Elizabeth W. Seaver
I'm sorry to say that Farmer Burford lost his tractor in a poker game, so he must ride his old bicycle about the farm. Today, he's just making an inspection, but when he has to pull the plow, he regrets his profligate ways most deeply.
Neither he nor Nettie Burford are sitting on their wings. Nettie, even now, bakes cookies, cakes and pies in their farmhouse kitchen to sell at church tomorrow. Burford cannot bake, but he has the best idea ever. It's such a good one, he hasn't even told Nettie yet--it's a surprise. He's setting himself up in a kissing booth, right on the church steps.
Wouldn't you pay a dollar to kiss this bird on your way into church? He really needs his tractor back.
