I recently celebrated my 73rd birthday,and on this occasion as I sat on My front porch sipping ice tea and reminising about My life I was very surprized to see Cousin Buford from Podunk County Tennessee come coasting down the hill and into my driveway in an older model T Ford truck.(Cousin Buford is Uncle Fossill's Cousin,not mine)
Why Cousin Buford I said in a surprized voice,what brings you all the way from Tennessee?
(Cousin Buford was a bit sweaty and unkempt,more so than usual) Well Uncle Bob,He repied,Cousin Fossill was telling me that it was your 73rd birthday and I wanted to say happy birthday an I wanted to show you this here ole truck of mine! of course it dont have no motor yet but heck I got it for practically nothing!
No Motor ? i said increduously.then how in the world did you get it all the way down here ?
Well,replied Cousin Buford,I looked at one of them new fangled things they calls a road map an decided that if you lived South of me,then it must be all down hill to your house so I got me a good run down Uncle Fossills driveway,an here I am. :)
