When I was a kid we didn’t take vacations, most farm kids don’t, especially in Arkansas..we did however get blessed with a local theme park called “Dogpatch”. It was based on characters from Al Capps cartoon strip, and it was about us hillbillies, we were actually glamorized there..I just wanted to be like Daisy May..We made the short trip to the park once a year, every summer vacation. A day of rest and relaxation a year, once in the summer seemed to tide us over until Christmas.
