Tuscan peasants are busy harvesting spaghetti fields and picking meatballs from meatball trees. As they labor, Tuscan peasants sing this ancient Tuscan song:

On top of spaghetti all covered with cheese
I lost my poor meatball when somebody sneezed

It rolled off the table, it rolled on the floor
And then my poor meatball rolled out of the door

It rolled in the garden and under a bush
And then my poor meatball was nothing but mush.

The mush was as tasty as tasty could be,
And early next summer it grew to a tree.

The tree was all covered with beautiful moss
It grew great big meatballs and tomato sauce.

So if you eat spaghetti all covered with cheese,
Hold on to your meatball and don’t ever sneeze.

Bookriders 1934-1943 WPA project to distribute books in eastern Kentucky on horseback. These 8 women (ca. 1938) are ready to head into the hills with books. Some are riding mules, which are sure-footed on rugged terrain. I believe this is Hyden, Kentucky.

My dad spent the summer in hinterlands of Cumberland County Kentucky in 1940 when he was a kid. I wonder if he met a Bookrider. I will likely never know.
