rube kubali

my mom passed on info on rube kubali's passing this week. he remains one of my favorite people ever. very cool. i still very strongly remember conversations with him about the dairy industry, tobacco farming (my first tour of a working tobacco barn! in kentucky nonetheless!) and was quite amazed to learn when he was young they farmed hemp! At the time I had no idea that hemp was ever even legal, let alone a major crop.

but really, my favorite thing about rube is my hat. he gave me a doby gillis like hat, which i wore and still do on occasion. it is the only gift i've ever received from a witch.

i thought then and think now:
rube and kris are cool.
