Episode Description:

The humble Farmer TV show for June 2, 2013

Thank you for looking at: “the New Maine Calf”

56 minutes. This show includes a new 6.55 minute clip of Denny Breau playing an Eric Clapton song at Little Bar in Goodland, Florida.

The commentary was filmed in humble’s solar radiant heated Maine Private Radio cellar/office in St. George, Maine.

Well received in Northern New England for 35 years, this is the same old fashioned music and humorous social commentary show that has delighted young and old alike every week since April 6, 1978 for radio --- and now for television.

Most of the video over the music is of the calf in the pasture and humble repairing a leak in his house behind the steps.

Music by: Clark Terry, Scott Hamilton, Don Doane, John Thyhsen, Ukulele Ike and Denny Breau.

humble is joined again on camera by his young friend, Sylvia, whose smile is now generating much of humble’s fan mail.

All of this is tame fare, indeed, for viewers expecting someone to be shot, arrested or blown up.

The show is tightly scripted. It starts out with the new black calf in the pasture. The show ends, as usual, with the Keystone Cops driving a car off the end of a dock.

The humorous and/or informative commentary that humble delivers between the songs is approximated below:

June 2, 2013

1. There are things that should not be mentioned from a television screen and we are going to talk about one of them now. You might remember that not long ago I said something about a man who discovered, much to his surprise, that his second wife was even nuttier than his first wife. Well, I’m not going to tell you how many threatening letters I got from men who said I’d better stop talking about them, but I am going to tell you that I’m never going to do it again.

2. humble telling stories before a live audience at the National Reo Club’s annual meeting.
+
3. We read somewhere that 14,000 wind generators have been abandoned in this country. We did not see where the writer got that number. And please listen carefully to what I’m about to say. --- It does not matter where he got that number as long as there are a few people who see it and are eager to believe it. There are folks who disagree with the number. I have nothing to say about it, although I have seen hundreds of wind generators cranking away in Sweden, Denmark, Germany and Holland. By the way, I didn't see any rusty, abandoned ones. That's probably because they have the rusty, broken ones hidden away like Saddam's weapons of mass destruction. However --- wouldn’t it be nice if every rural residence in Maine were topped off with those solar panel things that very silently collect electricity from the sun? No gears or wheels. No rust. I have 6 of those sweet little things, and I'm enjoying them very much, as would any stingy, conservative old Maine man who gets no thrill whatsoever out of paying an electric bill.

4. Marsha knocks on floor to call humble to dinner. humble says that the ants are getting bigger.
+
5. You probably heard that Dr. Clarence Effington of Port Clyde is home after six years as a hostage in the Near East. Earlier press reports that Israeli commandos freed him were incorrect, according to a state department spokesman.
Members of the press, who often jump to conclusions, were responsible for the mistake, naturally figuring that no other group in the world could have got him out.
But any American who thinks about it knows that Israeli commandos are a bunch of cream puffs, compared to OUR grim-lipped folks who waltzed in there and put Effington on the next plane out of Beirut.
There is no question in anyone’s mind, that when someone like Dr. Effington gets 6 years behind on his income tax, there’s NO LIMIT to what the IRS can do.
+
6. The number of jobs available in Maine for college students is down this summer, according to a work-study report.
Last summer many psychology students earned college credits by working in mental institutions as role models. But the role model works two ways. This summer, many of the students who worked in the programs can’t be distinguished from the patients.
+
7. A headline in today’s paper reads: City To Debate Animals.
The mayor says that he should do all right as long as only the sheep show up, but if the pigs choose to participate he may be in trouble.

Thank you for considering The humble Farmer.
