  • A lady lost her handbag in the bustle of Christmas shopping. It was found by an honest little boy and returned to her. Looking in her purse, she commented, "Hmmm.... That's funny. When I lost my bag there was a $20 bill in it. Now there are twenty $1 bills."
    The boy quickly replied, "That's right, lady. The last time I found a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for a reward."

The quality on the alfalfa and grass was much lower today, and the prices reflected such. Same hay sold about steady. Straw sold a little weaker today.

As we were putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve, I accidentally dropped one. "No problem," I said, picking it up and dusting it off before placing it back on the plate.

"You can’t do that," argued my four-year-old.

"Don’t worry. Santa will never know."

He shot me a look. "So he knows if I’ve been bad or good, but he doesn’t know the cookie fell on the floor?"
