    A mountain farmer got in his pickup and drove several miles
    to a neighboring farm and knocked on the farmhouse door. A young
    boy, about 12 opened the door. "Is yer pa home?" the farmer asked?
    No sir he ain't," the boy replied. "He went to town."
    Well said the farmer, is yer ma here?" "No, she ain't here
    either. She went to town with pa."
    How about your brother, Joe is he here?"
    He went with ma and pa."
    The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one
    foot to the other and mumbling to himself.
    Is there anything I can do fer ya? "I know where all the
    tools are, if you want to borry one. Or maybe I could take a message fer pa."
    >"Well," said the farmer uncomfortably. I really wanted to
    talk to yer pa. It's about your brother Joe gettin my daughter, Pearly Mae
    The boy considered for a moment. "You would have to talk to
    pa about that" he finally conceded.
    "But if it helps you any, I know pa charges $50 for the bull
    and $25 for the boar hog - but I don't know how much he
    gets for Joe."
