Laetitia and her group drove through the Ozarks on the way to their destination, stopping to go tubing on the Current River and visiting the old red mill in Alley Spring State Park. They arrived in late afternoon at Poplar Bluff, Missouri. It’s a small city of about 17,000 inhabitants that bills itself as the “Gateway to the Ozarks.” Some gossip heard on the afternoon walkabout, about a local equestrian with an unusual riding habit, provided the grist for the limerick of the day.
A fine lass from the town Poplar Bluff
Liked to ride ‘round bareback in the buff
And while some neighbors stared
The others declared
“One Godiva is more than enough.”
