Mr. and Mrs. Brown had two sons. One was named Mind Your Own Business and the other was named Trouble.  One day the two boys decided to play hide and seek.  Trouble hid while Mind Your Own Business counted to one hundred.  Mind Your Own Business began looking for his brother behind garbage cans and bushes.  He then started looking in and under cars until a police man approached him asked, "What are you doing?"  "Playing a game," the boy replied.  "What is your name?" the officer requested.  "Mind Your Own Business."  Furious the officer inquired, "Are you looking for trouble?!"  The boy replied "Why, yes."

** My brother-in-law, a retired farmer, collects antique tractors. He has an entire barn full of them, absolutely amazing, not even any room to walk, and all in perfect working order. He confided in me the other day what his worst fear is. "A barn fire?" I asked. "No, not at all. I'm afraid that when I am gone, my wife will sell all my tractors for what I told her I paid for them."
