I've Found My Hobo King and I Better Hurry...He's Really, Really Old

His name is Jim Morphew. He states the hard facts: "A hobo travels and works," he explains. "A tramp travels but does not work. A bum does neither,"



The Hobo Convention defines a hobo as anyone who has illegally jumped a train. How do I do that, blog it, but keep my mom from finding out? Maybe we need a code word, readers.

Morphew's designation earns him free burial at the hobo cemetery in Britt, Iowa. Whuck?

Your comments are why I get out of bed in the morning. Just kidding. But I do like them.
