I may have posted this before, but it's still funny.

The Old Cowboy

A TOUGH OLD COWBOY FROM SOUTH TEXAS COUNSELED HIS GRANDSON THAT IF HE WANTED TO LIVE A LONG LIFE, THE SECRET WAS TO SPRINKLE A PINCH OF GUN POWDER ON HIS OATMEAL EVERY MORNING. THE GRANDSON DID SO RELIGIOUSLY TO THE AGE OF 103 WHEN HE FINALLY DIED.

HE LEFT BEHIND 14 CHILDREN, 30 GRANDCHILDREN, 45 GREAT-GRAND-CHILDREN, 25 GREAT-GREAT-GRANDCHILDREN, AND A 15-FOOT-HOLE WHERE THE CREMATORIUM USED TO BE.

This came to me in caps, and I was too lazy to retype it.
By the way, I've been using the draft form and posting ahead, so if I don't have time to post for a day or so, it will automatically post them for me. Have a wonderful day. Hard to believe Fall is almost here.

We did get a pinch of rain last night and when I heard it on the roof I thought I was dreaming.

Oh, and I like this post. I wonder what they do find in the ashes when the cremate people?

Maybe you posted it before, but this old mind doesn't remember. So, if was quite funny to me. I was lol when I read "a 15-foot-hole where the crematorium used to be." I agree with you about Fall, where did the Summer go? I guess it fell into Fall;)

That must have been quite a kaboom! Hahaha. Very funny, Patty.

We had a bunch of rain yesterday, and today it has been a lovely fall-like day. Heavenly!

Off to watch some TV in bed. Night.
