** A lawyer boarded an airplane in Miami with a box of frozen crabs and asked the stewardess to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew’s fridge. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out. Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior. Shortly before landing in Austin, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, “Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs in Miami please raise your hand?” Not one hand went up… so she took them home and ate them.

ATTENTION ALL HAY HAULERS: Beginning Sept 5th, the road through Hudson will be closed and you will not be able to get through that way. It will remain closed for the month of September. We had a lighter run today with a pretty good buyer crowd in attendance. Alfalfa quality was pretty good and the market on such was the same to slightly stronger from last week. We had a fair amount of grass in and the quality was up and down. The prices reflected accordingly. Straw market was lower. We are selling some trucks, trailers, and also a 1066 tractor.

** A man brings his best buddy home for dinner, unannounced at 7:30 p.m. after work. His wife begins screaming at him and his friend just sits and listens in. Wife: “My hair and makeup are not done, the house is a mess, the dishes are not done, I’m still in my pajamas and I can’t be bothered with cooking tonight! Why did you bring him home?!” Husband: Because he’s thinking of getting married and I promised him a demo!”

***Marriage is like a deck of cards. In the beginning all you need is two hearts and a diamond. By the end, you wish you had a club and a spade.
