Nowhere is the word “homeless.”
I grew up in Iowa. Every summer, there was a hobo convention in Britt, Iowa. Hobo stew was served. Any hobo that could make it joined with the town folks and many others to have a fun day. My dad’s friend from high school chose to be a hobo. Any time the train brought him close to our home, he stopped by for a visit.
Lighten up, folks, and join Lynn Compton for a fun day and good hobo stew Oct. 5.
