Uncle Fossill needed some nails to nail up a plank in his barn,so He drove his tractor the 25 miles into Podunk Township to get them,as he pulled his tractor into the parking place he remembered that they were also out of eggs so he went into the dairy section and got a dozen eggs,on the way to the hardware section with the eggs he remembered that Aunt Flossie Mae told him to pick up a bolt of calico cloth for her new Christmas dress,then he spied the new fishing poles and thought about that big cat fish he was trying to catch then he went into the dry goods section and got the bolt of cloth,having finished his shopping he drove the 25 miles back to his cabin and parked his tractor,on dismounting his tractor he remembered that he still had no nails to finish his barn.
