Once upon a time there lived a king. The king
had a beautiful daughter,
the princess.But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.No matter what; metal, wood, stone, anything she touched would melt.Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.
The king despaired. What could he do to help
his daughter?
He consulted his wizards and magicians. One
wizard told the king,"If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands,she will be cured."

The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.
The next day, he held a competition. Any man
that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king's wealth.

Three young princes took up the challenge. The
first prince brought a sword of the finest steel But alas, once the princess touched it, it melted.
The prince went away sadly.

The second prince brought diamonds. He thought
diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess
touched them, they melted. He too was sent away

The third prince approached. He told the
princess, "Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there." The princess did as she was told,though she turned red. She felt something hard. She held it in her hand. And it did not melt!!!

The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the
kingdom was overjoyed. And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Question: What was in the prince's pants?
Scroll down for the answer)

M&M's of course. They melt in your mouth, not
in your hand.
What were you thinking?

'Mornin' EO, glad to see you practicing your bedtime story telling for Fetcher.....he is going to be sooooo lucky to have a mom like you! And, you have so much to teach him now, all the things you have learned on the farm and least he will be able to learn from the best! Don't worry about the age thing, people will just have to get used to it...after all, this has happened before, in the best of regulated familys....... personally, I can feel nothing but joy and happiness for you and Denis. And the name is so.....different.....sure glad you didn't name him as a neighbor lady named her son, she called him "Jigsaw"....she said "...because it took a lot of pieces to put him together....." now I don't know this for sure....but thats the way I heard it! Have a gooder, R.E.L.
