Becky, I read this (Linwood Rogers) yesterday about three times, and its one of those gems that just does not get old: the beauty is, you can hear and see someone saying this, straight faced,twinkle twinkle.
Showed it to my husband this morning and he chuckled all the way downstairs. You have a solid fan base here. =)

Hi Judy:
The Linwood story is one of my favorites. He is well remembered in the area. More than once, someone in the audience has said, "I knew Linwood -- and this sounds just like him." A true yankee character.


one of our old timey neighbors invited us to come visit us some time back and he said, with a grin, 'we like to sit around making up old colorful Yankee phrases"...

And arent they wonderful at it.
