Looks a bit drafty and I bet with that rip in the fender it does more than rattle down the road, or what roads (if any) they have.
Hey, a Pop Top. Roomy.
she looks like she's thinking about the other guy she could have married
And he looks as if he just realized there is a shopping cart "over there".
And they are both wondering when they can get their next bath.
He does look a lot like Bubbles, Burger!!
Easy to poke fun at folks having hard times ....
Between WWI and WWII and shortly there after,
our population had a large number of mobile workers- including tradesmen & skilled workers ....
They cris-crossed the country following the work,
which was not just seasonal & agricultural ....
Families were mobile out of necessity - not choice.
There always has been a mobile work force. Some are agriculture, some oil, some construction, just folks going to where the work is. I've gone to a bunch of different RV parks the last two years and there are a lot of folks living out of 5th wheels or motor homes who live months to years in one place before moving on depending on the projects. Some are having difficult times, others just prefer a more gypsy life style. Almost all of those I've met are working rather than sitting on their butts waiting for the next welfare check. Have to respect the work ethic regardless of their circumstances.
Who was poking fun? I must have missed it >shrug<
It's a different kind of life for sure. My brother spent a few years following the wheat harvest from Texas up into Canada. Some places they camped in were pretty good and some places were nearly inhabitable. A lot of the guys you work for are mean and go through workers pretty fast. It doesn't take long for the word to get out as to who you work for and who you don't. Most of the guys who owned the equipment. Had to run their outfits with an iron fist because of the drinking. It was pretty rough but he said it gave him a lot of appreciation for the "gypsy" style workforce in this country.
You never know when you're better off.
"Wonder how your sister Bonnie is doing? She really liked that Clyde guy."
"Last I heard they were going to some farm to rest up for awhile."
"Yeah, we should of stayed with them."
The front tire appears to be a 3" yet it is demountable. I have never seen a demountable 3" tire, only 3 1/2 ........
