Ruthie On The Road, Update

Money and identification. Yeah, the lack of it is keeping a woman four months pregnant and her boyfriend from marrying right away. And it's making it tougher for me to rent a little room at the YWCA for the summer. But I sure am going to try to get that key, anyway!

I sleep in a room with the pregnant lady and a couple who is already married sleep in another room down the hall.

The shelter [actually a house] is old but we eat good meals and watch cable on a big screen tv.

This is a town filled with red necks, old pickup trucks, hellfire and brimstone sermons that always proclaim that we are "filthy rags" in the eyes of God and crumbling brick buildings that display cornerstones dating back to the 1880's.

Oddly enough, no Hank Williams or Elvis pictures adorn the walls of any cafe here.

Butte. Butt.

What, Campers, do you think is the difference between the two? Hmmm???
