DAY 347 of NONNIE'S PHOTO A DAY: Y is for Yokel

Y is for yokel Synonyms of yokel are these: oaf, hick, rube, bumpkin, hayseed, clodhopper  and in the Hoosier state, a yokel is known as hillbilly. (hence my photo of a mountain scene)
"Li’l Abner", a yokel of comic strip fame by cartoonist Al Capp, went to Broadway in 1956.  Three classmates of mine and I were treated by a father of one to see "Li'l Abner" on our Senior Trip in 1957.   More about Li'l Abner can be seen on Wikipedia here.
