    West Virginia farmer got in his pickup and drove to a neighboring farm and knocked at the farmhouse door. A young boy, about nine, opened the door.

    "Is yer Pa home"? the farmer asked.

    No sir, he ain't," the boy replied. "He went into town."

    "Well," said the farmer, "Is yer Ma here"?

    "No, sir, she ain't here neither. She went into town with Pa."

    "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here"?

    "He went with Ma and Pa."

    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.

    "Is there anything I can do fer ya"? the boy asked politely. "I knows where all the tools are if you want to borry one. Or maybe, I could take a message fer Pa."

    "Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to yer Pa. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Pearly Mae, pregnant."

    The boy considered for a moment. "You would have to talk to Pa about that," he finally conceded. "If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $50 for the bull and $25 for the hog, but I really don't know how much he gets for Howard."

    Morning all. Back home today. Will be packing for afternoon flight to Ft. Myers FL. [Bass Pro Shops Grand Opening]. Got the upgarde to the Big Seats. :thumb: Pretty today and warm but cooling way down tomorrow and for a few days. Glad I will be in FL. See we had a joke or two since I was here. Picked up boxes for ceiling and fixtures [light bar with mini spot lights] for train room. Hope to get them installed today after a Town meeting about a developer. Have a great day.

    Yeah, you're right, chilly... right now I read a bit under 50° and it probably won't get too much over the mid-80's later on...:D :D

    Now you know why I have spent all these years in the Phoenix area, we're finally making up for those 115° days we have a couple of months ago..sign1 sign1

    Oh, and we now have a steady stream of RV's and trailers clogging up our roads right now with plates from Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio, NY, Minnisota, Ontario. We call them "snowbirds", an annual migration from up north usually taking place to destinations like Florida, S. California and Arizona. :eek:

    I went into McDonald's today and ask for a cup of coffee, 2 sugars and with out creme. The girl went to I suppose her boss and several times they looked my way as the spoke.

    In a few minutes the manager came out and said "Sir we dont have cream, would it be all right with out Milk?"

    What next?
