Memories of Growing Up on a Family Farm
Memories of Growing up on a Family Farm, 11 x 14 Oil on Panel, by Tommy Thompson
Growing up on a farm, Tommy Thompson has many happy memories of adventures with his brother and neighborhood friends. The artist now tells his granddaughters funny stories such as the time he and his brother were left at home while their mother went shopping. She had told the boys to gather some corn in their garden. The two young boys soon tired of that job and decided to make a corn-cob pipe. When they could not find any "rabbit" tobacco (an herb characterized by its silvery green leaves) to smoke in their pipe, Tommy's brother came up with the bright idea of using coffee instead, as he said, coffee looked similar to tobacco. The boys became really nauseated and soon fell asleep on the grass. When Tommy woke up, he was lying on his back and he watched as the words,"Pepsi Cola," were drifting across the sky. The words were being written in smoke by a sky-writer airplane. Needless to say, the young boys wondered if they had died and gone to heaven. For many years afterwards, Tommy became sick at the thought of coffee and never tried smoking anything again.
