So, a little about me…. 

The Bumpkin was born and raised in the great state we know as Arkansas. My family and I moved to Northwest Arkansas in the late 90’s, ending up in Springdale in 1999. I got a job with a commercial electrical contracting firm out of Lowell and started working my way up to a Master Electrician. Now one of my first job sites, and the original job site tale for how ole Bumpkin came to be, was at a new elementary school in Gravette, AR, a little town just south of the Missouri line.  

Now everyday when I left Gravette, I would stop at this little convenience store outside of Rogers and grab a Coke on my way home. This particular fateful day, the wife at the time needed me to stop by Wal-Mart for a few items, too. I did. When I pulled in the drive my kids met me at the door, and one of them said “What’s on your back, Daddy?”; to which I replied “there better not be anything on my back”. 

Needless to say, there placed was a sign that read “Bumpkin”…I was not thrilled. I knew exactly who had done it, another electrician who thought he was a comedian, too. You will hear me talk about him in future episodes and the retaliation that followed, but that started a good long period of job site pranks and a list of butt-hurt individuals who caught the wrong end of ‘em. 

Family is another thing you will hear a lot about on this program. I love my family, even the extended family of sisters, nieces/nephews, and in-laws. And believe me, there are plenty of times they, too, were butt-hurt over pranks pulled on them. Its all part of growing up here in my family. So, sit back and relax.
