West Virginia Farmer

June 18, 2008

A West Virginia farmer got in his pickup and drove to a neighboring farm and knocked at the farmhouse door.

A young boy about 9 yrs old opened the door.

“Is yer Dad home?” the farmer asked.

“No sir, he ain’t,” the boy replied. “He went into town.”

Well said the farmer, “is yer Mom here?”

“No sir, she ain’t here neither. She went into town with Dad.”

“How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?”

“He went with Mom and Dad.”

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 Dad.”

“Well,” said the farmer uncomfortably, “I really wanted to talk to yer Dad. 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 fer Howard.”

Eric at Tygrr Express

Eric over at Tygerr Express has moved to a private server. In the email that he sent he said that there might be some problems with comments. Well? It uses WordPress log in, but it refuses to recognize either of my legitimate log in’s. In any case, he posted a very interesting piece on Dick Morris that everyone that is interested on politics should read.

Also, the link on my blog roll has been updated. I can’t wait for football season to get going!
