Ruth Wall writes-

Hi Joey,

Remember how I stumbled into Passports thinking I could do anything, including eat that hamburger, because I had just survived the hardest yoga class of my life?  I have an opportunity tip-off for a few strong people who don’t melt in the heat.  Help Kenny Lane at Seaview farm with haying.  This is the sort of thing football teams will sometimes "go out for" because it is such good conditioning.  It’s fresh air and by its definition, sunshine…"make hay while the sun shines".  There is drama and adventure too, as your crew races to get all the bales picked up before an oncoming thunder storm.  And that good, exhausted feeling afterward, Inner Peace.

Kenny mows fields for people all around Cape Ann.  The work is part time and for an afternoon here and there, and Ken does pay his help. He is looking for some good people now to help on and off for the rest of the summer.  Maybe if you post about it someone ill be glad for this rare chance to farm right close to home.

YO! What are Ya trying to Say, Jay?

This Post is in response of a comment made By Jay Albert in a previous post questioning if we really knew the meaning of the word Homie.

Definition of “HOMIE

Shortened version of homeboy, homeboy being your close friend

From the Urban Dictionary
Someone you grew up with, friend or not, and someone with whom you have shared any number of bonding experiences at home, in school, at work, or in any close-knit atmosphere. Homie means you have lived in the same area as this person for a significant amount of time in your life, but the term is appropriately used by those friends who truly feel comfortable referring to each other with such respect. It isn’t a word that should be taken advantage of, because a person recognizes who is a friend and who isn’t. Therefore, a true homie is always Down, while lesser friends will just be out to use you, borrow money from you, bum a ride in your car, etc.Uses;

Yo, homie, I’ll be at my house in case you want to come kick it later.

“Whassup homie”

Homie vs. Friends
Friends: Never asks for anything to eat or drink
Homies: Help themselves and are the reason why I have no food
Friends: Would bail you out of jail
Homies: would be sitting next to you sayin’ “THAT WAS FUCKING AWESOME!!! Lets do it again!”
Friends: Won’t laugh at you.
Homies: Will embarrass your Ass when everyone is around!
Friends: Has never seen you cry
Homies: Won’t tell everyone else you cried…just laugh about it with you in privately when your not still down.
Friends: Asks you to write down your number.
Homies: Have you on speed dial
Friends: Borrows your stuff for a few days then gives it back.
Homies: Loses your shit and tells you, “My bad…here’s a tissue.”
Friends: Only knows a few things about you
Homies: Could write a very embarrassing biography on your life story…
Friends: Will leave you behind if that is what the crowd is doing
Homies: Will kick the ASS of the enitre crowd that left you.
Friends: Would knock on your front door
Homies: Walk right in and say “I’M HOME”
Friends: Know some of your embarrassing moments…
Homies: Are next to you making them!
Friends: You have to tell them not to tell anyone
Homies: They already know not to tell…
Friends: Are only through highschool
Homies: They are for life
Friends: Will be there to take your drink away from you when they think you’ve had enough
Homies: Will look at you stumbling all over the place & say “Bitch drink the rest of that you know we don’t waste good shit!”

Jay, I never had one try to use me, borrow money from me or bum a ride in my car. Maybe poop on my car, But I’ve been shit on by Worse (Joey).
