The mule

The Mule

A newlywed farmer and his wife were visited by her mother,
who immediately demanded an inspection of the place.
The farmer had genuinely tried to be friendly to his
new mother-in-law, hoping that it could be a friendly,
non-antagonistic relationship. All to no avail though,
as she kept nagging them at every opportunity, demanding
changes, offering unwanted advice and generally making
life unbearable to the farmer and his new bride.

While they were walking through the barn, during the
forced inspection, the farmer's mule suddenly reared
up and kicked the mother-in-law in the head, killing
her instantly. It was a shock to all no matter their
feelings toward her demanding ways...

At the funeral service a few days later, the farmer
stood near the casket and greeted folks as they walked
by. The pastor noticed that whenever a woman would
whisper something to the farmer, he would nod his head
yes and say something. Whenever a man walked by and
whispered to the farmer, however, he would shake his
head no and mumble a reply.

Very curious as to this bizarre behavior, the pastor
later asked the farmer what that was all about. The
farmer replied, "The women would say, 'What a terrible
tragedy' and I would nod my head and say 'Yes, it was.'
The men would then ask, 'Can I borrow that mule?' and
I would shake my head and say, 'Can't, it's all booked
up for a year.'"

Where was that mule back in 1973??

Anyway, to get rid of my MIL I had first to get rid of her son..

It's been raining nonstop for two days, very loud thunders, bright lightning and windy also.
Weather gurus are predicting this depression might turn into a huricane. We'll see..
