Some "country" humor -
Curtis & Leroy saw an ad in the Starkville Daily in Starkville, MS. and bought a mule for $100. The selling farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day. The next morning the farmer drove up and said,"Sorry, fellows, I have some bad news, the mule died last night."
Curtis & Leroy replied,"Well, then just give us our money back." The farmer said,"Can't do that. I went and spent it already." They said, "OK then, just bring us the dead mule."
The farmer asked, "What in the world ya'll gonna do with a dead mule?" Curtis said, "We gonna raffle him off." The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead mule!" Leroy said, "We shore can! Heck, we don't hafta tell nobody he's dead!"
A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Curtis & Leroy at the Piggly Wiggly grocery store and asked. "What'd you fellers ever do with that dead mule?" They said,"We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonna do." Leroy said,"Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998." The farmer said,"My Lord, didn't anyone complain?" Curtis said, "Well, the feller who won got upset. So we gave him his two dollars back."
Curtis and Leroy now work for the government.
They're overseeing the Bailout & Stimulus Programs.
We stayed and bumped around the resort. Walked up to the lodge and got the mail that we had delivered here at the resort. Played dominoes with Les and Michelle. Michelle and I are finding out that a bottle of wine really makes the game go better. I did not say faster because Les does need to check it out or what ever he calls it. I am just saying wine make us not care if Les is ready or not. LOL We have a great time playing our games.
Michelle made a great meal of chicken and noodles and she picked out the most delicious apple pie from Public's Grocery store.
