Was reading the Reader paper about the old mill in Pickwick, Minn., about 15 miles from Winona. When I drive through Rushford I always remember what my grandpa told me, how he would leave Harmony with a big wagon load of grain and drive to the mill down in Rushford and have the load of grain ground into flour to take back home. With his horses and wagon load he would be gone from seven to ten days. He always had medicine along in case a rattlesnake would bite one of the horses on the way. All I can think of is how precious that flour was when grandma baked bread. Aren’t we lucky to run down to the grocery store and get all the flour we want.

A man went to a lumber yard and said, “I want some two by twice.” The salesman looked puzzled for a moment then, “Oh, you mean two by fours. How long do you want them?” “For a long time,” the man replied. “I’m building a house.”

Tourist: “Have you lived here all your life?”

Local farmer: “Don’t know - I haven’t died yet.”

Some people think church is like a political convention. They send delegates.

. . . . .

We can’t all be heroes. Somebody has to set on the curb and clap as they go by.

. . . . .

Life is depressing. We once tried counting our blessings and had to take off only one mitten.

. . . . .

Some people have short-sighted vision - it doesn’t focus beyond themselves.

Weddings
Modern weddings sure
have changed
With women’s lib and
its’ effects.
But though the bride writes
in new rules,
Dear, old Dad still writes
the checks.

“Hmmm?”

~ Why is the third hand on the watch called the second hand?

~ If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

~ Why do “slow down” and “slow up” mean the same thing?

~ Why do “tug” boats push their barges?

~ Why do we sing “Take me out to the ball game”, when we’re already there?

~ Why is it called “after dark” when it really is “after light”?

~ Why doesn’t glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
