little Iowa farm humor.................................
An Iowa farmer was sitting at the table, while his wife was preparing
dinner. His wife dropped a spoon and bent over to pick it up. As she bent
over, the farmer said, "Honey, your butt is as big as a combine." The wife
picks up the spoon and continues cooking, with no comment to her husband.
As she put the dinner on the table, she dropped the pepper shaker on the
Floor. While she was bent over picking it up, the farmer said, "Honey, I
take that back. Your butt is as big as two combines!" The wife picks up the
pepper, sets it on the table and begins eating with no comment to her
Later on that night, after the couple had gone to bed, the farmer started
feeling a little frisky. As he cuddled up to his wife, he noticed that there
was no response on her end. He tapped his wife on the shoulder and asked her
what was wrong. She replied, "Do you really think that I am going to fire
up $300,000 dollars worth of machinery for one little corn cob?"
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. (President Theodore Roosevelt)
