Recently I was visiting My Uncle Fossill up in Podunk Township located in Podunk County Tennessee and as We sat out on the front porch of his cabin which is nestled in the foothills of the Great Smokey Mountains,I was quiet startled when Uncle Fossill remarked that He was starting out to earn His 2nd Million Dollars.
Uncle Fossill,I replied,I have been knowing you for all of My Life and I never knew that you were a millionaire!
"Boy " He replied (Uncle Fossill has always called me "Boy" and never by my given name ) Boy,he said,I aint now,nor have I ever been a millionaire,but when I was a youngun I promised myself that I was gonna be one some day,but as fate would have it I aint never achieved that goal.But Uncle Fossill,I said,You just remarked that You were going to start out to earn your 2nd million dollars! thats true Boy,I did say that and I said that because I done plumb gave up on earning my First Million Dollars! :)
