A Storm's A-Brewing



Junior: "Those clouds are getting dark."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, and the wind's bound to pick up."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior:  "Yep, and just look at the leaves on those trees inside out. It's bound to rain soon."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, I think we ought to get the family down to the storm cellar."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, cause storm winds can blow really strong and turn into twisters."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "And the rain could cause a flood."

Daddy: "Ya reckon?"

Junior: "Yep, and if we don't do something soon that wind and rain will pulverize the house and barn on and on until little's left of them,"

Daddy: "Yeah, wreck on and on and on, I guess."

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year.

Tales From The Supermarket

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
