They only know left from right depending on what country they are in/from...

UK teamsters walk on the right side of the team and Gee technically means to turn away from (to the outside of) the teamster, so in the UK 'Gee' means 'Turn left'...

o.k. then- here goes as it was tolt to me--

old farmer calls the vet to come see his cross-eyed mule. vet tells the oldtimer to hold him tight and watch his eyes real close. then the vet inserts a slender hollow reed into the backside of the mule and blows into it as hard as he can. sure enough the oldtiimer shouts to the vet that the mules eyes popped back to normal. then the mules eyes crossed again. the poor vet was so winded that he could not manage a second go of it so he asked the farmer to blow hard into the reed.
the farmer went up to the reed and removed it, turned it around, and gently shoved it back into the mules rump.

"What you do that for?" asked the vet.

"Well you didnt think i was going to use the same end you did, did ya?"

Trick is to have your very own slender reed i guess.

KatG    Posted 10-26-2004 at 13:02:04       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I am having a "black dog day" as they call it...Matt is outside as we speak almost scraping the ground with the mower trying to get rid of that #%@^ grass...There is nothing else to do...either keep her locked up or get rid of it...Ellie is locked in the barnyard and drooling to get out and eat what remaining onion grass there is...I got 5 gal. of beautiful milk in my fridge and when you open the jar it will blow your head off with the smell...So guess I will have to pour it all down the drain since my chickens are died...
Wow what the last few days this has been...
My little calf that fought with the barb wire is doing great...wounds almost all healed up...that spray stuff works wonders...MAtt says we are going to use it on us if need cheaper than going to the doctor and probably better for you also...
I am lost without anything to tend too...I do not know how anyone just sits and watchs TV and does nothing...(sister-in-law)...I got to get me some more chickens little calf don't even need me as much...MAybe I am having empty nest
How are things in Canada??? Sounds like a wonderful place to me...
I got to get out of the house for awhile...walls strating to close in..lolTake care..KAt
